The band Oceanographer started out as a trio including vocalist Jeremy Yocum, drummer Bradly Brown, and violist Eric Elterman. They started really playing in 2002. Their music was originally known for the dreamy atmospheric sound. Now with the additions Steven Kimbrell on guitar and bassist Ryan Goolsby the group has a more energetic feel. Even though the sound of their music has changed a bit from the very beginning their music remains captivating with flowing lyrics and mellow vibe.
