The new EP from Los Angeles, CA/New Orleans, LA musician James Rose, Lullabies to the Ocean, is a record dedicated to the ocean. After spending ten years in New Orleans, Rose began to crave the Pacific coast. Looking for an opportunity to create a consistent change for the better, he made the journey home to California. The collection of songs is awash in mellifluous, melodic folk-pop and symbolizes a huge life change in body, mind, and spirit. It’s about overcoming self-sabotage and finding the true nature of one’s being.

Rose explains, “I have always found pleasure in the romance of being a writer and constantly working on something lost in another world. I love the idea of pens and notebooks and playing with words to create unique imagery symbolizing different aspects of human behavior. Creating the music to accompany the feeling and movement of the words is 100% pure joy and it is one of the only true personal fulfillments of my life.”
