The Binary Sea
The Binary Sea
The Binary Sea is the brainchild of Philadephia artist Christian A. Guerrero. Guerrero, veteran of numerous bands, he cut his teeth in the NJ punk scene and rose to noteriety as the original singer of BEDlight for BlueEYES. Their album, The Dawn, has sold over 100k units.

Emotionally and Spiritually drained by the loss of his mother and grandmother to cancer, enduring a brutal divorce, all within the same small timeframe, Guerrero relocated to Philadelphia and began to pen his experiences in an effort to exorcise the shadows that loomed over him. Inspired by the human connection he slowly rediscovered living in the heart of Philadephia, and frustrated by the isolation of living exclusively through social media, he sought to combine aspects of the digital and the organic, influenced by the legends of Motown Soul, the layered affected textures of shoegaze and electro, and the heartfelt sincerity of folk... Guerrero nimbly navigates these many influences into an enormously rich and powerful sound that will send you straight to the dance floor or pining for the one you love. The sound is massive, but the words bleed true. Nothing was held back, and we’re all the better for it, bathing in the soundscapes and explosive hooks of their forthcoming release “WARRIOR CODE".
