Discover unburied “Treasure”

Finally, a collection of never-before-released mixes of favorite Bounce the Ocean songs including “It Just Gets Better” and “Wasting My Time” as well as unheard demos featuring legendary Andrew Gold (“Thank You for Being a Friend”) and a never before heard track, “First I’ll Take You” – a snappy danceable powerpop song featuring world-renowned drummer Kenny Aronoff (John Cougar Mellencamp), Neil Stubenhaus on bass, Randy Waldman’s blistering grand piano solo and Jerry Hey and his classic horn section, produced by Grammy Award-winning musician and songwriter, Clif Magness.

Mainly recorded in the 1990s, this collection includes the original musical vision of Bounce the Ocean with front and centre harmonies, solos by John and Hawk and fresh instrumentation produced by Grammy Award-winning Steve Berlin (Los Lobos), mixed by legendary Michael Frondelli (Crowded House) and engineered by sound designer Frank Bry.  Also featured on drums, Andy Kravits, now a Grammy Award-winning producer himself.  On guitars, world-renowned Tim Lerch, Michael Thompson and Greg Leisz with tasty slide guitars on “Letting Go”.  Original, unapologetic, authentic pure powerpop.

Bounce the Ocean was formed in 1990 by Hawk Björn and John Utter.  Undaunted by the emerging chaos and hype of the Seattle grunge scene, the music of Bounce the Ocean is inspired by crafty popilious songwriting, universal and personal lyrics, haunting and gorgeous harmonies and just great melodic power pop.  All in all, “Treasure” contains 15 never before released tracks recorded by Bounce the Ocean over the years including the acoustic ballad “Take Me As I Am”.

This collection will be available on August 25, 2023 at streaming sites and digital stores everywhere. Unburied “Treasure”. Pure Bounce the Ocean.
