Bounce The Ocean (1991)

American duo with only one album to their name. Formed by Hawk Bjorn and John Utter, the album was released on the small independent ‘Private Music’ label. The songs are highly melodic, light AOR poppy numbers, but the whole thing has a charm that draws you in and gets under your skin. Features uber session player Michael Thompson on guitar.

Favourite track is ‘Crooked Heart’. Check it out below.
