FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE



Ocean's Suspense Thriller Horror Novel, The Sea Wraithe, is About to Emerge


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:


Ocean's music is only one of her talents, as her writing debut proves. 

It has created great interest among her music audience, and is introducing her to the suspense book fans of the world.

The Sea Wraithe, a chilling tale of mystery, intrigue, and glamor reminds reviewers of Stephen King’s books in its’ horror aspect and of Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights in its’ haunted themes. An intensive plot of obsessive love drives this passionate thriller.


The book follows the world's top big wave surfer, through a nightmarishly edgy pull back through time. Set during the late nineteen eighties in the hippest circles of Malibu and of Hollywood, when surfing was just beginning to be a global phenomenon, the most celebrated surfer, has everything that anyone could want -  but everything is never enough. Falling for the ultimate femme fatale, his past and his future collide in a completely unexpected ending.


When asked about her decision to write novels, Ocean answered in a recent interview, "Songwriting is something that I do along with composing music, and it's natural for me to take my writing to the next level, and since I’m a huge fan of horror and of suspense books and films, I like to write the books I would love to see produced on the screen."

A world traveler and a devotee of history, psychology and anthropology, Ocean also loves mythology and other cultures, sci-fi and fantasy in addition to murder mysteries and ghost stories.


Ocean’s new CD will be debuting soon, and we anxiously await her next books.

OCEAN UNVEILS NEW CD, “OCEAN”

Ocean, acclaimed Artist-songwriter and producer, has a new CD debuting in November, 2012. Entitled, simply, Ocean, it showcases the mesmerizing and lush vocals she is known for, and, this time, in a more relaxed, adult-contemporary vein. The songs on the self-titled CD are luxurious, melodic numbers, often with romantic themes- but some run toward the darker realms of mythic realms, and toward the exotic in structure, rhythm, and style. Overall, the listener is lured into a sensual dream of sound, seduced by Ocean’s unique and golden-toned voice.

Her well- received and eclectic first release, Mermaid Music, was, in the words of one reviewer, “Sultry and exotic, as her image would suggest,…slick and well-crafted..(with) psychedelic funk work-outs..(you will) be entranced.” Her song, “Love-Junkie”, a metal-rap number, has proven to be a popular cross-over perennial, and “Siren Song”, a favorite on AAA stations.

Her vocal talents are unique and vast in both in range and style, and her songwriting puts her in that rare category of artists who can do both equally well. Ocean’s delivery on some of these softer rock songs remind one of Sade and Sting, while some of her stronger vocal runs can be compared to those of Evanescence. From echoes of Astrid Gilberto’s sandy island sound to Nina Simone’s gravelly soul, Ocean’s new vehicle, Ocean, puts her in the league of some of our preeminent female vocalists.

Ocean, named for the ocean, is a surfer, a vegan, and an environmental activist. Her multi-talents are used not only in the creation of awesome music, but also in the service of saving animals and the planet. Due to this compassionate interest, Ocean has been invited to act as spokesperson for a new health, fitness, beauty, and multi-faceted publication, Eco Magazine. Ocean, their choice for first Eco Mermaid, was also selected for their first Eco Celebrity Interview.

OCEAN MAKES WAVES WITH HER DEBUT RELEASE
MERMAID MUSIC, ON NOVEMBER 17TH


Artist, Songwriter, and Producer, OCEAN has a song catalogue of over 3,000 original songs. This is just the beginning. OCEAN is of Scandinavian heritage; she has traveled the world with her skateboard and surfboard, grew up in Malibu,California, and on the Florida coast, and attended school in New York State and in Europe.

In MERMAID MUSIC, OCEAN creates mesmerizing songs which flow from the idea that being "free" is the essence of life. Described as a "Freedom Child," and having written and produced music since the tender age of fourteen, OCEAN has followed her wanderlust, her own siren song, all over the planet.

The lure of exotic lands has always inspired her creatively. The possibility of being labeled as a "Disco Doll" or being limited to just one style by the music industry has lead her to release her own production of MERMAID MUSIC, a spiritually free, undulating record with accents of tribalism, electronica, dancemusic, and street funk.

Since MERMAID MUSIC was largely influenced by her world travels, it's music touches many cultures, embracing exotic elements in a style she created and calls,"Hypnofunk". Some of the music is based on "Homegrown Funk," her idea of the distillation of rock, funk, and blues. Her lyrics are at the same time "street-wise" and "lyrical,"often drawing upon mythic themes. At times, the sophistication of cross-rhythmic fusion underlies the intricacies of her haunting, multi-leveled vocals. OCEAN has emerged on the music scene with a powerful current of uniquely original melodic sound. Her interest in causes has lead her also to record a collection of lullabies to give to children in hospitals and orphanages. Ocean is a volunteer for "wildlife rescue," and spends time surfing and helping lost and injured animals. In MERMAID MUSIC, OCEAN takes the listener on a magical voyage of the seven seas, through a primal realm where the flavors of many cultures converge. OCEAN 's musical sorcery blends these elements together and entrances the listener with the passionate, lilting waves of this, her debut album.
