Oceans Apart began as a hobby for former Stutterfly vocalist Chris Stickney, and has since evolved into an expressive and emotional musical outlet for its ever changing lineup. Currently located in Kelowna BC, Canada, the band remains active in the local music scene in many different genres, including jazz, folk, rock, and more.
Many of the band's musical elements have been compared to other groups like Sigur Ros, Sleeping At Last, Mew and Explosions In The Sky. The ambient nature of their music is complimented by memorable vocal melodies and complex piano riffs, making each song a dynamic journey. The rise and fall from sparse and delicate to driving and epic allows some of their songs to be over ten minutes without losing momentum.
Oceans Apart’s live show has been described as a mesmerizing, emotion-evoking experience. Audiences can expect to be intrigued as the band experiments with instruments such as the glockenspiel, trumpet, and even a cello bow on a guitar.
