about

“Whale Song' leads the record off in a most compelling fashion, a rich, modern-flavored verse giving way to a roots-tinged chorus, complete with tinkling honkytonk piano and dobro fills which take the song to an entirely unexpected place." Andrew Greenhalgh- music writer.
Features Trevor Garrod (Tea Leaf Green) and Dan Lebowitz (ALO).

The Whale Song-lyrics

Oh how I yearn for thee,
patiently awaiting my return to thee,
for thee i will traverse anywhere.
for thee I will do anything,
because of thee my life has meaning.
a romantic notion, I would sail across the ocean,
sail across the sea...


No ocean could seperate,
no mountain that would not beckon me to climb.
no wave i would not ride, no wind i would not glide.
a poetic notion, i would sail across the ocean,
swim thru thoughts of thee,
i immerse myself in the essence of thee.
i permeate the universe,
until i find thee, and i always find thee.
yes i always find thee.

a lovely notion, sleeping in the ocean,
like a whale i safely glide,
you are the waters all around me,
i feel you touching, every part of me.
I slide into dream, a releasing notion,
i merge the ocean, merge the sea.
merge the ocean, i merge with thee.

No ocean could seperate,
no mountain that would not beckon me to climb.
no wave i would not ride, no wind i would not glide.
a poetic notion, i would sail across the ocean,
swim thru thoughts of thee, baby.
i immerse myself in the essence of thee.
i permeate the universe,
until i find thee, and i always find thee.
yes i always, always, always find, find thee.
yeah baby.

about

Stephen Cogswell San Francisco, California

Stephen Cogswell is a remarkable singer and songwriter with a knack for creating island beats and breezy tunes that are not too unlike music by Xavier Rudd, Dave Matthews, Jack Johnson, and even Darius Rucker. The vocals are strong, poetic, and earthy throughout. If a beach had a soundtrack: Floating would be the answer.
