THE ADVENTURES OF
DAN & OCEAN
DAN & OCEAN. are an Americana & Soul duo comprised of Dan DiMonte and Ocean Lorraine. Two years after meeting at an audition in Torrance, California and embarking on 3 consecutive tours across the United States, the two decided to combine threads from their individual solo careers to craft a powerhouse blend of American Folk, Soul, Gospel, World Music, and Jazz Roots styles that connect people around the globe. Spreading their own intrepid brand of “Come Up Music,” their mission centers on painting real-life portraits of companionship, healing, isolation, bravery, and strength in a troubled world.
Both highly-educated multi-instrumentalists, vocalists, composers, and producers, DAN & OCEAN. are a rare undeniable mix of tradition, immense talent, work ethic, and resilience that finds them standing out wherever they go. A Chicago native, Dan has mastered the art of singing while playing guitar, flugelhorn, and keyboard simultaneously with spectacular results. Ocean, an accomplished singing bassist, percussionist, and emcee with Louisiana roots from Los Angeles, brings their fresh once-in-a-generation chemistry together.
DiMonte's 6th studio album (released on October 4, 2019) The Coronado Kid, Pt. 1: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack features Ocean on two singles — the shimmering soul-anthem “Son of the Moon” and funky bass and horn rocker “Outside Cat." The duo is now in the midst of a 12-week U.S. tour scheduled through December 2019. Audiences can expect an authentic, sensual, and transcendent concert experience led by two of modern music’s most fascinating new voices.
