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 in a daring new foray into solo music.

The first taste of new material arrived 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, 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. And he is just as
compelling in the record’s many departures, playing lothario in
the seductive “Come Together,” contemplating his unique creative
process in the piano-driven “Avalanche,” or paying tribute to
Emily Dickinson’s perspective on an artist’s responsibility via
“Untethered”—“tell us the truth, but tell it to us gently, lest
we all go blind.”

Boyd and O’Brien joined forces when Incubus went on hiatus
following 2011’s If Not Now, When? “After much toiling and
overthinking about how I was to go about starting a new music
project, I decided that the best way forward was to let go
completely!” Boyd enthuses. “Stop thinking about where, when,
what, who and how, and simply…GO!”

That ability to overcome doubt and give voice to complex thoughts
applies to his visual art as well. Boyd’s third art book, So the
Echo, will also emerged in September, following up acclaimed
predecessors White Fluffy Clouds (2003) and From the Murks of the
Sultry Abyss (2007). A compendium of unobstructed watercolor, ink
pieces and photographic spreads, So the Echo “offers some of my
most vulnerable observations yet, unedited and out on a limb.
After all, the echo towards a life of expressivity is only as
loud as the call!”

“There is no end in creativity,” Boyd concludes. “Hence, to
strive towards an end result is a fool’s errand. Set goals, make
music and paint pictures, but know that the crux of your
happiness balances delicately on the wings of the act of
creativity itself. Not at the finish line.”
