Ocelli's delicately woven vocals and instrumentation evoke melting and stillness. The slow-motion sound is vaguely hinterlandik with roots beneath Portland. Moody, ethereal, haunting, mesmerizing. The music is recorded in Moonbath Studio in Portland. Reviews & Comments... 'That voice! Oh my word, that voice!!! I am chilled by the haunting beauty that drips from this music...so delicate and soaked in such rich depth. They mesmerize something wicked with such dreamy lullabies.' Ian ~ Los Angeles 'Lance has the most beautiful voice in all of Portland.' Elaine ~ Portland 'I listen to this music while walking through the hazy cobble stoned part of old Paris late at night. It is quite fitting.' Margot ~ Paris, France 'Listening to this music for the first time felt like the scraping of layers off my heart.' Sandy ~ Portland 'From the moment I stumbled upon these creatures I've been in love with this music. It makes me breathe heavy with delight! Enthralled, enraptured, mesmerized.' Mandy ~ Halifax, Nova Scotia 'I am so deeply soothed by the lyrics and melody of this music. The album never fails to move me. I am reminded of the beautiful power of sound. The CD is one of my favorites.' Cassidy ~ San Francisco 'The emotion and passion fires burn so bright when Lance plays, the coldest soul has no chance but to melt.' Jonny ~ Portland 'When he sings, I feel like I'm being covered in honey, and set on fire all at the same time. He has an angels voice.' Sarah ~ Portland 'The sound is hauntingly potent, surreal, lulling. It breathes a certain kind of sadness without sorrow. His voice is tender, his musicianship impressive, and his composition unique. Mark Of The Muze is a sweet treat to the ear...a definite Portland must-see!' Nicole ~ Portland 'If there's one thing this boys got, it's pipes, and the talent to back it. Lance's composition skills combined with his out-of-the-ordinary singing range (meaning not many boys can do this) resembles that of the late, great Jeff Buckley. This music is enjoyable and damn f***ing unique. Keep a look-out for Lance and his no-fear stage presence.'
