Songs for The Out of Sight is the second release from The Oceans of Music Project. A collaborative compilation by musicians, artists and ocean lovers from around the world all working with one common goal - to raise awareness to the plight of the out of sight in our seas. The oceans are the life blood of our planet. If the oceans die we die. And they are dying. Environmentalists, scientists newspapers and reporters across the world are beginning to tell the same grim story that our oceans cannot take much more and are at the point of collapse. But it is not too late. There is still just enough time for us to make the changes we need to. Help us to spread the word. Help us to raise awareness. Help us to awaken the support that our oceans need whilst supporting those awake and acting on our behalf. All profits from the sale of this release go directly to the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society at the point of sale.
