Formed on the beaches of Florida, Lighthouse on the Horizon is a musical project more then a band. It was founded on the premise that music as we know it is being damaged by the major labels, and that only a return to music’s independent roots can set it free. Recording was started in 2008, for a series of demos that were to become part of a larger release called “The Sea and The Shore.” 30 demo songs were recorded during 2008 and 2009, and from there the album’s progress slowed.
Fast forward 3 years, and Make A Move records is proud to give you some selected demos from that time period – collected here as the “rough seas ep.” Featuring 7 song that are designed to show the ever expanding musical influences in the Lighthouse on the Horizon project. Ranging from reggae to jazz, indie-rock to ska, adding some rock and roll and hip hop - you will see what the ground work for The Sea and the Shore was meant to be.
Do not fret, fair reader, Lighthouse on the Horizon is still very much alive. This EP serves to formally relaunch the project, and help usher it into 2012. Let us swim for the shore, together!
