We Set Sail is a story of hope birthed out of the ashes of a decaying social scene. Looking forward from the past, with a new perspective, they welcome the future with open arms. This is why the name We Set Sail is so relevant: It's looking at the land and its borders and its palpable limits and choosing instead the infinite sea where the awe and mystery of life can be regained. Cynicism is frowned upon in such departures.
We Set Sail's music is guided by one mission: To make you happy, come on, it's ElectroPop. The music is a celebration of life, a celebration of innocence, of love. You will want to dance when you hear it. You will dance. The music's reliance on synthesizers makes its sound a reflection of the future. An innocence once lost, now regained. It's 22nd century pop. At the end of the show when We Set Sail casts off for new waters, people will leave with a smile; so many smiles, hugs all around, hugs on the house. New relationships will blossom. Half-broken relationships will be recovered. Tomorrow won't seem so bleak. Tomorrow will be lived in hope. After all, isn't this what the future should be?
The band was founded by and is primarily composed of two brothers: Justin and Jared Chipman. Justin is the lyricist, vocals and guitar aficionado. Jared is the arranger, producer and multi-talented musician extraordinaire. A majority of their songs are also accompanied by a female vocalist, one Joy Carlen, whose voice instantly places a smile on your face. Because of their early start as musicians, their music is not forced or thrown together piecemeal like most bands who learn their instruments in the process of trying to get famous. Rather, over the years, they have honed their craft as musician and as a result their music flows naturally from their own rich experience.
As a result of these years of aging like fine wine, We Set Sail comes to the forefront of the less-than-satisfying musical erosion called "the scene" with guns blazing, synths pumping, and vocal melodies that leave the masses with hope in their hearts and smiles on their faces.
