Formed in 2013 by frontman Griffith Snyder, guitarist/programmer Charles Kern, and multi-instrumentalist Julia Mendiolea, Inner Oceans is a project born from a desire to sculpt music that is exceptionally personal, while also embodying a spiritual mystery and elegance that is just out of reach. Every song is an empty shell waiting to be inhabited by what they call, “The Ghost”. Finding The Ghost of each song is to chase that ineffable spirit-quality that transcends an arrangement of notes, and transforms the song space into a sacred moment experienced by the listener alone.
Described as “delivering maddening, stadium-ready giants” (DIY), and earning a feature on NPR’s “Heavy Rotation”, Inner Oceans have opened for the likes of Tennis, Wild Nothing, Hundred Waters, Big Data, Moses Sumney, On an On, Holy Fuck, and Shigeto. The success of their early singles, “8 Cousins // Everything’s Alright”, has earned them a strong international following and repeated placements on high-profile Spotify playlists
Santa Fe-based Songwriter and author David Berkeley has been called “a musical poet” by The San Francisco Chronicle. And according to the New York Times, “Berkeley sings in a lustrous melancholy voice with shades of Tim Buckley and Nick Drake.” He’s been a guest on This American Life and has shared stages with Adele, Mumford & Sons, Ray LaMontagne, Billy Bragg, Ben Folds, Don McLean, Dido, Rufus Wainwright, Joseph Arthur and many more. His latest project is a novella of ten
interweaving stories and an album of ten accompanying songs, one for each main character. Find him at http://www.davidberkeley.com
