"Ocean Inside Of Me" is the title track of my second album which I’ve been working on for over 3 years now. This song marks the beginning of a ten song journey from dark to light. It’s a deeply personal collection of songs written while I was struggling with my mental health and recovering from it. Telling this story from the other side means a lot to me and I hope it can make others feel seen and less alone on their journey.

This first song is about a moment of stillness and loneliness where you face the heaviness of your struggle. I wrote the lyrics sitting by the ocean in Tenerife at night under a sky full of stars after a really tough day. I was slowly coming out of the denial that I'm ok and realizing that I was depressed. Music gave the words to me long before I dared to speak them to anybody else. 

It was in that night that I got the idea to make an album called “Ocean Inside Of Me”, on the 22 of December 2019. At the time I didn’t know where my journey would take me, and it wouldn’t be an easy road - I even got to a place where I didn’t write songs, everything felt really dark. But as I became more self aware and started healing the album became a part of my journey, of reclaiming my voice and working towards something that matters to me. 

This song and album wouldn’t be what it is without Dominic Romano who produced it. I feel so lucky that I got to work with him, he’s an incredible producer and a dear friend. Through the process of bringing these songs to life we both dove very deep into their stories and I always felt heard and safe - I found someone just as passionate about the project as I am. Sending tracks back and forth between Cologne and California we have become a really good team!

As you listen to this first chapter of “Ocean Inside Of Me” I hope you can allow yourself to listen in the way that supports you the best. If you know the place it describes know that you’re not alone. It does get better, be kind to yourself.



There are rivers under my skin
They make me shiver when I’m bleeding
There’s a forest on my mind
It swallows me when I am losing

Now the sun sets
It gets colder
Wrapped in silence
I grow older

Night cover me in darkness
Take the blue from my sky
Stars be my witnesses
You have seen me cry

When the ocean inside of me swallowed my eyes
When the ocean inside of me flooded my eyes

There’s an army of clouds that I live under
It makes my bones heavy sometimes
My head's full of lightning full of thunder
In the storm behind my eyes

Now the stars shine
Through the holes
Wrapped in moonlight
Darkness glows

Waves come on bring me thunder
I am afraid of lightning
Thoughts I lie under
They have heard me lie

When the ocean inside of me swallowed my mind
When the ocean inside of me swallowed my mind

I see my world drifting away
I had no words so I spoke in pain
I spin and I turn and I have no say
When the ocean inside of me turns to a wave 

The coast is flooded and I am shaking
Inside of my head the waves are breaking

Night cover me in darkness
Take the blue from my sky
Stars be my witnesses
You have seen me cry

When the ocean inside of me flooded my eyes
When the ocean inside of me swallowed my mind

What the press says:

I find the melody particularly interesting as it captures the core of dealing with mental health problems. The piano is Keller’s mind with the hushed drums and acoustic guitar slipping in as inner demons attempting to take control.

“Ocean Inside of Me” é simplesmente um hino para tocar a alma e transformar as pessoas.

Using naturalistic metaphors, she grasps at the experience of a deep blue state of mind. Each word is delivered with a deep personal resonance that sounds and lingers within the listener.

Chock full of stunning lyrics and swelling chord progressions, this is a song you feel.

Paired with a beautiful video performance, Luna Keller‘s ‘Ocean Inside Of Me is compassionate songwriting at its finest.

She brings the moment to life with her unique brand of delicate and acoustic storytelling. Luna’s vocals are mesmerising, and her lyrics are rich with imagery.

I think the music video for Ocean Inside of Me is pretty impressive. It shows Luna on a boat crossing through the darkness as she performs.

The new cut is yet another example of Luna Keller showcasing why she's now getting some serious numbers on streaming platforms.

Luna Keller's dedication to her craft, her (probably involuntary and unconscious) refusal to be boxed into industry molds, and her commitment to creating music with depth is an act of artistic rebellion.
