(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) May 12, 2008— Cincinnati-based piano-rock outfit Seabird will release its Credential Recordings debut, Til We See the Shore, on June 24. Already generating an early buzz among critics, the project contains songs of real life struggles, relationships, losses, bittersweet goodbyes and the courage to share love.
“We want to invite the listener to share the emotions, victories and defeats we all experience as normal, everyday people,” says frontman Aaron Morgan. “There is a redemptive quality present in this record, even in the darker moments. We hope it will be an oasis for those who were left thirsty by years of heartache.”
Seabird’s primary aim is to connect with its audience, “to be approachable and to write songs that people can rely on,” says frontman Morgan. “We want the listener to remember that there is always something worth fighting for and someone around to help keep our heads above water.”
Comprising Aaron Morgan (vocals/keys), Chris Kubik (bass), Aaron Hunt (drums) and Ryan Morgan (guitar), Seabird and Til We See the Shore is already connecting with listeners. The band’s hometown CityBeat writes, “Strewn with British influences, Seabird’s music holds the echoes of Coldplay and Radiohead, but there’s an American structural dynamic that runs throughout it as well. And Seabird’s sounds do call out for attention.”
Similarly, Chattanooga’s The Pulse comments “Their melodies have a solid background in Britpop, and sound a bit like a mixture of Travis and the Doves, with vocals reminiscent of the Weakerthans. The piano acts as a strong base for several of their songs and gives the lyrics an opportunity to resonate with the listener.”
Seabird also recently signed an exclusive booking agreement with APA Talent Agency. With major offices in Beverly Hills, New York, and Nashville, APA is one of the largest full service talent/literary agencies in the U.S., representing top artists in all genres of music, as well as theater, movie, and literary clients. JR Montes, the band’s APA agent, comments, “APA is proud to represent Seabird. The band’s solid work ethic, soulful lyrics and dynamic live show make them a perfect fit for our roster. We look forward to long, rewarding relationship with the band.”
The album’s first single “Rescue” is currently available digitally through iTunes and all other digital music outlets. A music video for the song will be serviced to all major video outlets in June. For more information on the band, visit: www.seabirdmusic.com or www.myspace.com/seabird.
