Seabird Releases New Album, Out June 24th

Seabird We are all drifters. Whether it’s drifting from job to job or between relationships, security, happiness…truth. It’s no surprise that in our wandering, which often seems endless, we become discouraged and even desperate. We need to know that rescue is on the way. Credential Recordings band Seabird offers just that assurance on its debut album, Til We See The Shore.

Consisting of brothers Aaron (vocals/keys) and Ryan (guitar) Morgan, as well as Chris Kubik (bass), and Aaron Hunt (drums), the Cincinnati-based band initially formed in 2004 when entering a local “battle of the bands” competition. Its first national project, a collaborative effort with producers Jacquire King (Modest Mouse, Kings Of Leon, Tom Waits) and Allen Salmon (Mute Math), is an attempt to meet its fans where they are, to craft an album that “share[s] the emotions, victories, and defeats we all experience as normal, every day people,” says Aaron.

“Our songs are about real life struggles, relationships, losses, bittersweet goodbyes and finally having the courage to tell your childhood sweetheart you love her,” Aaron explains. But it’s not all trial and tribulation. “There is a redemptive quality present in this record,” he continues “even in the darker moments. We hope this record will be an oasis for those who were left thirsty by years of heartache.”

Seabird’s upbeat pop sound, described by The Myriad’s John Roger Schofield as “like swimming in a summer river out in the clear, crisp, delicious mountains,” incorporates adventurous melodies with sharp hooks throughout the album’s 12 tracks.

“Let Me Go On,” for example, “is about the power of a great song,” says Aaron. “Either a song moves the listener and leaves them with an unforgettable melody or story, or it doesn’t. If it’s the latter, it’s not worth keeping and especially not worth performing. Musically this is one of my favorites, because the melody takes so many turns from verse, to chorus, to bridge and really makes an immediate impact on the listener.”

Ultimately, rescue is what it’s all about for Seabird. “We want to be approachable and to write songs that people can rely on,” says Aaron. “We want the listener to remember that there is always something worth fighting for, and someone around to help keep our heads above water.” For the guys of Seabird, it’s a poignant message that continues to play on repeat long after the music stops.”

“Delivering tunes about courage, love, loss and redemption, they tackle life's curious waves. Seabird's key-driven Rock is intimate, longing and full of the sounds of high flights and deep seas.”

“It's an album ripe with stories of personal struggles, ethereal piano runs and Jeff Buckley's spirit.”
