NASHVILLE, Tenn.—Setting Sail, the full-length debut from Seattle-based husband/wife duo Mr & Mrs Something, is now available at iTunes and other leading digital outlets. Produced by GRAMMY® winner Mitch Dane (Jars of Clay, JJ Heller), the project’s 10 selections were penned by Mr & Mrs Something’s Benjamin “Bino” and Chelsea Peck.
Highlights of Setting Sail include the fiddle and banjo-driven album opener, “Your Eyes”; the rootsy title-cut—an ode to Hope; the love song “Home Will Be,” the couple’s first-ever collaboration; and the instrumental, “The Bridge.” Mr & Mrs Something play a variety of instruments throughout the project, which is further hallmarked by the duo’s shared lead vocals and signature harmonies.
“I come from a big sailing family and Bino grew up by the beach, so we both love the water,” Chelsea Peck says of the project’s thematic inspiration. “The phrase ‘Setting Sail’ represents both the beginning of our journey as a band and the life of faith for all believers. With our music and with our lives, we are putting up our sails not knowing if the wind will come, but trusting that God will provide and use us how He wants.”
“Whatever the specific subject matter, our music seems to always return to four themes: love for God, love for each other, love for others, and a dissatisfaction with the status quo driven by a longing for God’s Kingdom,” Bino Peck shares. “We hope our songs convey these themes in a way that is easily accessible to believers and unbelievers alike.”
Following their marriage in 2012, Bino and Chelsea Peck began performing as Mr & Mrs Something, as well as writing and recording music for films. In addition to the four-song The Nativity EP, which released in 2013, they composed and produced the soundtrack for CLOSURE, a documentary chronicling an adoptee’s search for her birth parents. The couple currently serve as worship leaders at Seattle’s Calvary Christian Assembly.
