Picture the Ocean plays The Royal with Nelson singer/songwriter Rhoneil tomorrow night.

Picture the Ocean to play Nelson

Picture the Ocean prepares to play The Royal in Nelson tomorrow night.

Picture the Ocean is everything you want it to be and everything you never knew it could be. It’s an instruction to put your thoughts somewhere else. It’s subjective. It’s different for everybody. No one pictures it quite the same. It can be as serene as calm water, and as turbulent as a winter storm.

Picture the Ocean is refreshing alt-pop delivered by a powerhouse trio that sounds twice its size.

Formerly known as the group Jesse Dee and Jacquie B (JDJB), Picture the Ocean is the new name for an already well-established act.

The new band name marks a departure from a more roots style of songwriting typically associated with JDJB, as well as a move towards more involved creative collaboration.

A big part of this new fusion of ideas is the addition of full time drummer/vocalist Matt Blackie.

Their self-titled album Picture the Ocean is the follow-up to Our Ghosts Will Fill These Walls — an album which charted for eight weeks straight in the top 10 on !earshot! and is still charting  across Canada.

Very much on the heels of their previous offering, Picture the Ocean is a collection of songs/stories which have developed in the last year of hard touring together. Picture the Ocean takes the stage with Nelson’s Rhoneil Friday at The Royal.

Doors open at 8 p.m. Tickets are $8 at the door.
