WATERTOWN BAND ANNOUNCES DEBUT ALBUM RELEASE & PARTY
Oceans Below, classic & new light rock band from Watertown, announces the release of their inaugural CD: ‘Give Them Something New’. The band will be celebrating their debut album’s release with a party at the Watertown Golf Club, located at 1 Thompson Park, on Saturday June 9th from 8pm until 10pm. There will be free food and guests will have the opportunity to hear the band play an assortment from their 11 original songs. CDs will be available that evening for $10. Those wishing to preview the CD or purchase online, can visit www.cdbaby.com/cd/oceansbelow.
A combination original and cover band, Oceans Below was formed in June of 2011. The band originally consisted of two members: Joseph Foy (Song Writer, Guitarist, Bassist, Keyboardist, Vocalist) and Stephen Dettmer (Co-Songwriter, Drummer, Percussionist, Vocalist). As they expanded to larger venues, so did their members – Sarah Sharlow (keys & vocals) joined the group on occasion, and her sister Shannon Elliot (guitar & vocals) eventually joined on a more permanent basis. The band enjoys playing in a variety of venues, including the Watertown Farmers Market, Barley Pub, Black River Valley Club, and various local festivals.
Oceans Below’s original songs feature an eclectic mix of 11 songs ranging from upbeat punk, acoustic flow, inspirational pieces, fun pop/rock, and even a couple love songs (both upbeat and thought provoking). The band’s cover library includes songs from the 1950s to today’s popular and country music.
Those interested in more information about the band can find it at any of the major social media sites:
