Review by Jeremy Searle, Friday, 10 October 2014; Score: 8
••••  Elijah Ocean’s new album is a delight from start to finish. There are glorious harmonies, melodies to die for and the whole thing is a breath of fresh air in an over–angst–ridden market. Opening track “Ride It Out”, indeed much of the album, has the feel of early Ryan Adams solo outings, only a little more acoustic. It’s also a life–affirming positive song, and there aren’t that many of them about. There’s a proper country sweetness to the music and every track has a gorgeous hook or chorus and there are great harmonies as well from Ocean and Sarah Durning. One might invoke the spirit of Gram and Emmylou and not be guilty of hype.
••••  Ocean has been around for a while, playing in bands, on other people’s records and so forth as well as producing two previous solo albums, but this is clearly the one where he hits his stride. There’s nary a weak spot to be heard. “Savannah Rose” is drenched in steel and harmonica, the title track has echoes of CSN, “Last Stand” is proper country rock, “Sapphire Blue” shivers the soul and Ocean’s lonesome aching vocals are powerful and moving throughout. There may be only eight songs and a total running time of barely thirty–six minutes but this is a perfectly distilled set that, once heard, has to be heard again. And again. And again.

About: Elijah Ocean is an American singer–songwriter making modern folk and country music rooted in the styles of artists like Neil Young, Gram Parsons and The Band.
••••  Ocean was born in a small house in the Hudson Valley. His parents later moved the family to the woods of midcoast Maine, where he grew up listening to records by The Beatles, Paul Simon and Willie Nelson. As a teenager Ocean was gifted an acoustic guitar and, inspired by the songs of Bob Dylan, began writing songs in his family’s barn.
••••  Ocean’s career as a solo artist began in 2009 with the release of his folky debut, The Wind or the Wine, which coincided with a move from Maine to New York City. It was there he honed his voice and vision, establishing himself as a unique and authentic musical talent with the release of Tumble & Fall in 2012. A steady regimen of national touring followed, with Ocean recording two sessions for Daytrotter and playing to packed houses from Mercury Lounge in New York to Hotel Cafe in LA. Now he is set to release the follow up, Bring It All In.
••••  The opportunity to record this new group of songs at Waterfront Studios was a dream come true for the blossoming singer. Built by producer Henry Hirsch (Lenny Kravitz, Mick Jagger) inside a nineteenth–century church in Hudson, the analog studio provided the perfect space for Ocean’s thoughtful songs to come to life. He brought in seven of his best friends for a weekend of live tracking with engineer Greg Di Gesu, and together they captured the eight songs that make up Bring It All In. The open sound of the room paired with the natural arrangements of piano, fiddle, and pedal steel create a comfortable bed for Ocean’s earnest vocals, which were caught live on the floor with Sarah Durning singing harmony on a shared mic. The album will be released this fall as Ocean once again makes a simultaneous move, this time to Los Angeles. :: http://teamclermont.com/
