Conversing With Oceans Thanksgiving Show at Studio @ Webster Hall
Nov 25, 2016 @ 7:00 pm| $10
Have some post-Thanksgiving fun with Conversing With Oceans. He will also be releasing his full EP Past. Present. Future. the same day.
Past. Present. Future. holds two of Conversing With Oceans’ previously released buzz-worthy singles “Heart of a Poet” and “Deeper”. “Heart of a Poet” was produced with longtime friend and musician, Brendan Rivera and his production team Field Observations (comprised of Matt Labozza and Stephen DeRafelle).
“Deeper” was the result of a collaboration between Conversing With Oceans and the legendary John Forte, who co-wrote and produced Fugees LP, The Score.
“Past. Present. Future. combines all aspects of time, while my name (Conversing With Oceans) combines locations. It’s a coming together of time and space. Also, the songs progress from a starting place of past conflict (“A Spotlight on 3rd”) to current love (“The Gold Rush” and “Deeper”) to a place of future inclusion of others in that love (“Heart of a Poet”, “The Dream”).
Conversing With Oceans’ (Alex Bondarev) narrative begins in Grozny, formerly of Russia, when the unrest of war led him and his family to immigrate first to India, and then to The Bronx. Having music as his anchor from an early age, he started his first band (A Moments Worth) with his best friends from grammar school. Their brand of optimistic rock resonated deeply with audiences as they made front page news of New York Press, won the first College Battle of the Bands, and received the Elfenworks Social Justice Award for their song “Dedicate”.
Conversing With Oceans’ first single “The Gold Rush” quickly landed him a one-on-one showcase with the legendary Randy Jackson at this year’s SXSW and a global distribution deal with The Orchard.
