The Edmonton band, Picture the Ocean, is a subjective experience, different for everyone, yet still everything you want it to be.

Formerly known as Jesse Dee & Jacquie B (JDJB), the alternative pop group has a new name for an already well-established act. The new 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, which includes new full time drummer/vocalist Matt Blackie.

The brand new album Picture the Ocean (self-titled), 2012,  is the follow up to Our Ghosts Will Fill These Walls (Sept. 2011) – an album which charted for eight weeks straight in the top 10 on !earshot! and is still charting  across Canada.

Very much on the heals of their previous offering, Picture the Ocean is a collection of songs/stories which have developed in the last year of hard touring together. Right from its inception to the recording process at Sound Extractor Studios in Edmonton it is a truly unique take on rock music that will leave you wondering where on earth this band came from.

The show is free of charge, and starts at 8 p.m.
