Chicago-based singer-songwriter Samuel Ocean spent most of his childhood in Caracas Venezuela where he studied music at Caracas's premier Music & Fine Arts Conservatory "Jose Angel Lamas" , developing rapidly into a phenomenal pianist, singer and composer. He went on to complete his music studies at the University of Tennessee in Chattanooga.
In 2005 Ocean co-founded the Southern California soft-rock trio "Elsewhere Road" fronted by singer-songwriter duo Mindy Wilson and Mark Torres. Relocating to Chicago in 2008, Ocean has worked with several local artists as accompanist both in the studio and on stage.
In 2013 Ocean composed the sound-track to the Water People Group's theatrical play "Musas" earning them the opportunity to be featured in New York City's "Fringe Festival" in the summer of 2015.
Ocean has been featured as an "up-and-coming" artist in some of the City's most popular music festivals including the "Taste of Polonia," the Elbo Room's "IAMFEST" and the "Milwaukee Avenue Arts Fest" - among others. He has also performed as opening act for local, national and international artists in such venues as the Elbo Room, Goose Island, Subterranean, Hard Rock Cafe, and many others.
Following the success of his singles "Say Yes" and "Love Is On Its Way" Ocean currently occupies the top spot on the ReverbNation Alternative Music Chart for Chicago.
