More often than not, jam sessions between friends turn into unproductive jamming-pizza-into-your-mouth sessions. However, a 2010 meet-up between guitarists Bill Check and Michael Flaherty was quite fruitful, not only marking the beginning of Empire Of The Sea, but producing two songs that were later featured on their debut record Fathoms. “This band came together with the sole purpose of creating stress-free music that brings about certain mind and bodily feelings through the melodies,” says drummer Michael Tyahur. He says the band’s dream is to create more post-rock instrumental music that could eventually be placed in movies, stressing that the financial rewards might be great, they’re still “committed 120-percent to the music.”
