Jennifer's newest album, consisting of 15 epic piano based orchestral masterpieces.  Jennifer started writing the music for Oceans in 2020 during the pandemic and it took her 4 years to complete.  Recorded at Abbey Road Studios, London and featuring the utmost quality as you have come to expect from the music of Jennifer Thomas.

The physical CD comes in a 3-panel digipak with a beautiful 24 -page insert booklet including all of the liner notes, Jennifer's explanations behind the music and more.

Oceans is unique from a stylistic point of view for Jennifer as she explored the use of layering of multiple pianos and piano FX.  The album's sonic landscape carries themes through that involve the multi-layered piano as well as string bends and electronic FX and SFX that really bring the listener into the world of Oceans. The album was completed by the brilliant orchestration by film score composer Glen Gabriel. Three of the songs are two-piano duets (The Metamorphosis Suite and Transcendence (featuring pianist Ryan Stewart alongside Jennifer)). Jennifer also makes her vocal debut as the lead vocalist on her original song "You Carried Me Home", and her cover of Coldplay's "Something Just Like This" also featuring her vocals.
