Music Inspired by the book "The Outlaw Ocean" by Ian Urbina.

"Music can express the unknown, like feelings beyond words. This music reflects the mystery and magnitude of the ocean, but below the surface of the sound is a story of heartbreak and healing. For me, this music is about grieving problems beyond our control while inspiring change within ourselves in order to make a difference." - Christopher Willits

The book, "The Outlaw Ocean", reveals the dark secrets of the high seas and, in doing so, illuminates hope for change. Author Ian Urbina listens to the voices of the unknown, salvaging stories and mapping their ethical murmurs for others to discover.
