Biography

Sons of the Sea is the quintessential Brandon Boyd record—an introspective, eclectic collection from the artist, author, activist, environmentalist and surfer that will tantalize longtime fans while further spotlighting his evolving interests. The acclaimed Incubus vocalist is stretching his formidable creative muscles with a daring new foray into solo music.

The first taste of new material arrives June 25 in the form of four-song EP Compass (released worldwide on Avow Records / INgrooves Fontana). From the eerie, synth-driven obsession of “Lady Black” to the upbeat, Beatles-esque musing of “Space and Time,” these songs propel Boyd into exciting, untraveled terrain. Rounded out by the evocative “Come Together” and “Where All the Songs Come From,” Compass is representative of his innate restlessness. For an artist like Boyd, the thrill and confusion of the quest to create will always trump the tangible, material rewards bestowed for his efforts.

While Boyd’s inviting, empathetic voice is familiar to millions, Sons of the Sea (self-titled album due this fall) infuses it in challenging new contexts. Produced by the renowned Brendan O’Brien (Incubus, Pearl Jam, Bruce Springsteen, Rage Against the Machine), the album luxuriates in innovative sonic backdrops, allowing what they coined as “oddball pop” to flourish. Leadoff track “Jet Black Crow” flaunts what Boyd calls a “stomping playfulness” that befits his dreamlike musing on infatuation’s ups and downs.
