When Elijah Ocean answers your call, you never know where he’s going to be. We’ve chatted as he crossed the country in a tour van or boarded a flight to Nashville. He might have a few minutes to talk while he’s setting up for a gig in Brooklyn or heading up to the Maine coast to visit the state where he grew up. There’s a restlessness to the man and his music that never lets up. But for now, at least, he’s found a physical and musical home in Los Angeles.

Ocean moved there two years ago after nearly a half-decade struggling to make ends meet in Brooklyn. Now, he’s among a burgeoning scene of long-haired dreamers ushering in a new era of L.A. country music.

“I wasn’t making a living as a musician in Brooklyn,” Ocean said in a phone conversation. “I was working on food trucks and doing construction, and I wasn’t really happy doing that. I was looking for a more joyful life experience.”
