Hey Ocean ... Indie Pop - Canada


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hey_Ocean!

Hey Ocean! is a Canadian indie pop band formed in 2005 in Vancouver. David Beckingham and Ashleigh Ball had been friends since Grade 6, joining with David Vertesi in 2005 to form the band.

The band consists of Ashleigh Ball (vocals/flute), David Beckingham (vocals/guitar) and David Vertesi (vocals/bass). Their music draws from many genres, including pop and acoustic, and the group tours Canada widely.

They also perform locally alongside other Vancouver acts such as Shad KMother Mother and Said the Whale.

The band ran their own label for many years, being represented by Nettwerk Management, and had overtures from Gene Simmons before signing with Universal Music Canada for distribution in 2011.

Lead singer Ashleigh Ball's voice acting work has drawn international attention to the band from members of the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic fan community. Fans have created music videos featuring the band's songs and footage from the show, some of which are featured on the band's official website.
