Crossing The Sea
Released on September 16, 2022, our newest single “Crossing The Sea” is a bossa nova ballad that takes you on a solo cruise through uncharted waters. The vocalist tells the story of a love adrift on the wide open seas leading to a journey to new horizons.
About Our New Song
“Crossing The Sea” features the superb guitar stylings of Beto Tiano and smooth vocals from Hassan Moses Vakili. The rhythm section is comprised of Allen del Rosario (piano), Charlie Channel (bass), Chris Cortez (drums) and David Vargas (latin percussion).
Produced and engineered by David Vargas, with Executive Producer John Vargas, at 4Play Studios in Fremont, CA. Mastering by Grammy-nominated engineer Shawn Hatfield at Audible Oddities, San Francisco, CA.
“This song brings us back to our Bossa Nova roots. I wanted to paint a picture showing a rhythm guitar foundation reminiscent of Joao Gilberto, while the vocalist tells a bittersweet story of the loneliness experienced on the open seas.”
John Vargas, Composer
