DAN & OCEAN
DAN & OCEAN. are a Soul, Americana, & Jazz Roots duo comprised of Dan DiMonte and Ocean Lorraine. Two years after meeting at an audition in Torrance, California and embarking on 2 consecutive tours across the United States, the two decided to combine threads from their individual solo careers to craft a powerhouse blend of American Folk, Soul, Gospel Blues, and Jazz styles. Spreading their own intrepid brand of “Come Up Music,” their mission centers on painting real-life portraits of companionship, isolation, healing, and strength in a troubled world.
Both highly-educated multi-instrumentalists, vocalists, composers, and producers, DAN & OCEAN. are a rare mix of tradition, raw talent, and entrepreneurship that finds them standing out wherever they go. A Chicago native, Dan has mastered the art of singing while playing guitar, trumpet, and keyboard simultaneously with spectacular results. Ocean, an accomplished singing bassist, percussionist, and emcee from Los Angeles, brings their fresh once-in-a-generation chemistry together.
DiMonte’s 6th studio album titled The Coronado Kid, Pt. 1: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack under the Funky Night Nurse Sounds and Sights label, features Ocean on two tracks — the shimmering soul-anthem “Son of the Moon” and funky bass and horn rocker “Outside Cat,” which was released as a single on July 5, 2019. The EP debuts worldwide on October 4, 2019, in the midst of the duo’s upcoming 12-week U.S. Tour kicking off in the Pacific Northwest. Next, DAN & OCEAN. will travel to Asia to release the album during the Winter 2019 - 2020 season. Global audiences can expect an authentic, sensual, and transcendent concert experience led by two of modern music’s most fascinating new voices.
