Brooklyn-based indie artist Bess Rogers has had a lifetime fascination with evolution. But it wasn't until 4 years of nonstop touring and three independent releases, that the science of life began to creep it's way into her songs. Her sophomore record, aptly titled Out Of The Ocean, is a bold step forward for Rogers, and one that she has been eager to take.
During a rare few months off of touring (Bess tours not only for her own music, but as a lead guitarist and back up singer for indie-pop artist, Ingrid Michaelson), she decided to hibernate in her Brooklyn home and write a new a new record. In between working on the songs, she picked up a book called "Your Inner Fish" by Neil Shubin. "The book is about our evolution from life as far back as pre-historic fish and microbes and how that has affected our bodies and our lives now. It really grabbed me and I found myself a bit obsessed. I started to look at everything we do in life as a product of evolution, and many of the songs on this record were inspired by that idea."
