Who is Stealing Oceans?
It’s rapper and lyricist Brian Thompson’s love for words and melodies that steered him away from the grip of a five-year struggle with drugs and alcohol. Now sharing his positivity under the moniker, Stealing Oceans, he has created a unique sound to help spread positivity and remain an encouraging influence.
Fresh off signing a management deal with Starstruck Entertainment in Nashville, Stealing Oceans has been honing their hip-hop sound, drawing influences from the likes of Macklemore, Gym Class Heroes, Hoodie Allen and Jon Bellion. They have seen early signs of success with their debut single “Blueprint” and EP Let The Kids Play earning attention from critics in Nashville and beyond. Indie music blog Nashville Unsigned said of the EP, “Stealing Oceans is here to provide you with music of substance and realness.”
The group’s energetic live show - which includes stagedives, crowd surfing and backflips - has not gone unnoticed either, with the band being nominated for “Best Live Act” three years in a row at the Nashville Industry Music Awards. The band tours heavily, with a European tour and a string of college shows this summer and upcoming festival slots at KAABOO in San Diego and the Cayman Islands.
But the band’s vitality is not only for entertainment alone. Stealing Oceans hopes to encourage their fans to be appreciative each day by fusing positivity and optimism into their sound and lyrics. They take time out of their touring schedule to their story with others, hosting charity events and actively raising awareness for suicide prevention and mental health. Stealing Oceans aim to use their platform to make a difference in people’s lives. They strive to inspire others with their moto: “Stay Youthful, Be Grateful, and Always Love.”
