YOUNG OCEANS is a neo-alternative worship project that evolved from hymns penned and arranged within the Trinity Grace Church community in New York City. The endeavor sprang up as an offshoot from TGC's two live worship albums, Without End (2009) and We Sing As One (2011), when an eclectic gathering of musicians and parishioners began exploring artful re-renderings of those songs in a SoHo apartment. Untethered from the expectations of a traditional congregational format, including both length and structure, a musical ethos emerged as more a companion to reflective prayer and meditation than to a typical church experience. Attendance at impromptu gatherings soon filled to overflowing and led to the recording of a studio album that could be shared on a broader level. The resulting YOUNG OCEANS album was released in April 2012 as both a free download and for-purchase album via all major outlets for those wishing to support the project.
