Old Sea Brigade really feels like coloring outside of the lines. For as much as the music of Old Sea Brigade remains rooted in Americana, indie, country, rock, and ambient soundscapes, it blurs and breaks barriers, tossing and turning between analog cinematic flourishes and provocative lyricism based on hard-won wisdom. Amidst this mélange of textures, Atlanta-born and Nashville-based singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Ben Cramer allows the emotion to resound loudest on his full-length debut, Ode To A Friend [Nettwerk]."I tried to put myself into my own bubble," he explains. "I chose to do something that felt like me. It's the best representation of my songwriting and what I grew up loving about music. I hope you can pull your own meaning from it." He teamed up with producer Jeremy Griffith to record Old Sea Brigade's self-titled debut EP. The single "Love Brought Weight" caught fire, generating over 16 million Spotify streams. Barely over two minutes, the title track of his full-length and closer "Ode To A Friend" leaves a lasting impression that's both heartfelt and heartbreaking with a vocal mid-section that practically levitates on the energy of raw feeling."When I started Old Sea Brigade, the time that followed was the best two years of my life," he goes on. "I could tour and work on music full-time. In the middle of all that happening, one of my best friends actually committed suicide. It's a heavy record in that respect. I came up with the lyrics right after he passed. I didn't want a normal structure. It's almost like an interlude to tie up the album dedicated to him. He was always such a big proponent and fan of my songs. He encouraged me to move towards a solo career. The title made sense. I felt vulnerable enough to put out music that was close to me." That's why it's so easy to get close to Old Sea Brigade. Cramer opens the floodgates emotionally and forges an unbreakable connection by simply being himself.
