Philip B. Price – frontman and songwriter for the band Winterpills – will release his new solo album, Oceans Hiding In Oceans, on Friday February 19th.
Written and recorded at home during the pandemic, Oceans Hiding In Oceans is what Price describes as “an album of urgent need.”
“I’m not going to lie, it’s been a tough time,” Price said in a statement.
As the father of a toddler, Price’s music diet consisted of Raffi and Baby Shark for months. And it did something to his songwriting process. “And I just embraced it,” Price said. “Full on it.”
That doesn’t mean, of course, that the new album is full of children’s dance tunes or simple folk songs for children. Price added a lot more to the mix with influences like Dolly Parton, Elton John, Fiona Apple, Regina Spektor, Donovan, John Lennon all adding flavors to the melange.
The result is a typical piece of Price brilliance, which the songwriter himself describes both aptly and cryptically as “a quantum physics album without knowing much about quantum physics”.
Price will be performing an album release show for “Oceans Hiding in Oceans” on Friday, February 19 at 8:00 p.m signaturesounds.com/homesessions.
