It’s fitting that The Family Crest was born in San Francisco, a city known for its rich history of experimentation, innovation and progressive thinking. It’s the kind of place that would welcome The Family Crest’s audacious vision for how music could be created.
In 2009, two young musicians - Liam McCormick (lead vocals, guitar) and his friend, John Seeterlin (bass) - settled in San Francisco to record a cycle of songs that Liam had written. For Liam, a self-taught composer and trained vocalist, there was explicit intent for this recording project: to include as many people as possible in the music-making, based on the belief that everyone is inherently musical when given the opportunity.
“When I began composing the music for Beneath the Brine,” explains Liam, “my orchestrations included instruments I never would have dreamed of including before, like bassoon, vibraphone, French horn. I really tried to learn as much as possible about the instruments I was writing for, and to do that, I went back to members of the extended family to learn about their specific crafts. That’s where we saw our vision for collaborative music really come to life.”
The result is nothing short of epic, as The Family Crest has wielded classical chamber sounds and pop music elements seamlessly in songs like “The World Will Heal Another One” and “As We Move Forward.” It’s the sonic representation of what Liam, and many pioneers before him, saw from the edge of the West Coast: the enormity of the sea, with its depths, dangers and possibilities. Beneath the Brine will resonate with listeners who have ever dreamed of pushing onward to find solace and community in something new.
