Tully MacKay-Tisbert is a guitarist, singer, songwriter, mountain climber and adventurer originally from the Adirondack Mountains of Northern New York and currently based in Southern California.  His music often transcends genre, blending heavier electric sounds with acoustic fingerstyle and folk while also exploring influences from Traditional East Asian music--The guzheng makes occasional appearances in his compositions and recordings.  Much of his music has been released under the stage name The Animus Ocean.  Listening to his music one can hear the process of intellectual and spiritual exploration.   His most recent project, released in September 2018 and titled Tully MacKay-Tisbert: Vicissitudes, is a collection of meditative instrumentals influenced by Micheal Hedges, Kaki King, Slack Key and Buddhist concepts.
