Biografia:
A banda pop alternativa Ocean Blue, de Hershey, Pennsylvania, foi formada em 1987 pelo vocalista e guitarrista David Schelzel, o tecladista Steve Lau e o baixista Bobby Mittan, colegas de escola de longa data, que compartilhavam uma afeição pelos grupos favoritos das rádios universitárias, incluindo U2, Echo & The Bunnymen, The Smiths e REM. 

1

Com a adição do baterista Rob Minnig, a banda assinou contrato com a Sire no ano seguinte, daí resultando o seu álbum de estreia homônimo, lançado antes que os seus integrantes terminassem o ensino médio; o disco imediatamente caiu nas graças das rádios alternativas, notadamente os hits "Between Something And Nothing" e "Drifting, Falling". O esforço dos universitários da Ocean Blue resultou em novo disco, "Cerulean', de 1991, dando continuidade à atmosfera utilizada no seu registro anterior.

"Beneath The Rhythm And Sound" veio à tona dois anos depois, com o vídeo de "Sublime" tornando-se um dos favoritos da MTV. O EP "Peace And Light", de 1994, foi o último a sair pela Sire e também o derradeiro de Lau – ele deixou a banda para formar a sua própria etiqueta (Kinetic). O guitarrista e tecladista Oed Ronne foi recrutado para o debute da Ocean Blue na gravadora Mercury, com o disco "See The Ocean Blue", de 1996. O álbum "Davy Jone's Locker", de 1999, apareceu primeiro pelo próprio selo da banda antes de ser reeditado e distribuído pela March Records no início de 2001. Seguiu-se o EP "Waterworks", com seis faixas, em 2004, apresentando o novo baterista, Peter Anderson, que substituiu Rob Minning. Em 2013, a banda retornou com o disco longo de estúdio "Ultramarine" (Jason Ankeny, AllMusic; tradução livre do inglês).

Oh my gosh, THANK YOU SO MUCH for this post!! These guys have been one of my favorite bands ever since back in 1990, when I heard "Drifting, Falling" from their first album on MTV. (Man, I miss the days when MTV actually showed music videos ....) I've got their first four albums on cd, but I've had a VERY hard time finding any of their others. It's great to finally be able to hear some of their later music!

Again, thank you! This blog is awesome -- so much great music!

You're very welcome! I'm really enjoying the Ocean Blue music. I think "Ultramarine" may be my new favorite album of theirs!

OK, I'm glad for your happiness.
