Live Free

The wind whipping through your hair and the roar of an engine. There is no greater feeling of freedom than being on two wheels. Indie Ridge knows this, and it is that spirit that inspired this film. "Live Free" is a challenge and a call to action. In the words of Adlai Stevenson, "who shall say that since we have gone so far, we can go no farther?"

"Glow"

This is a special project for us. This film is dedicated to the life a close friend, Francis John Feeney. Being As An Ocean generously donated the track "Glow" for this project. "Glow" explores the grief and hardship of the loss of a close friend, and the feelings of abandonment and isolation that can come out of that process. Above all else, this project is about holding on to hope in dark places, when all seems hopeless.

"It will shine still brighter when night is about you. May it be a light to you in dark places, when all other lights go out."
