Ocean was a Canadian pop band consisting of vocalist Janice Martin, guitarist David Tamblyn, keyboardist Greg Brown, bassist Jeff Jones, and drummer Charles Slater.
“Put Your Hand In The Hand” was a gospel pop song originally recorded by Anne Murray. Ocean recorded a peppy version of the song and issued it as a single. Released during early 1971, it almost made it to the top, peaking at number two on the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Chart.
Ocean would place three more singles on the lower regions of the BILLBOARD Pop Chart in the United States. By 1975 the band was a memory leaving behind one million selling single.
