Old Sea Brigade Announced Debut Album Details + New Song “Feel You”

September 25, 2018 BY Nettwerk

Old Sea Brigade will release his debut full-length album, Ode To A Friend, on January 4, 2019.  With this news, the Nashville-based, Atlanta-born singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist shares a new album track, “Feel You,” with an accompanying music video.

Produced by Jeremy Griffith, the 11 tracks on Ode To A Friend blur and break barriers. While the songs remain rooted in Americana, indie, rock, and ambient soundscapes, they also toss and turn between analog cinematic flourishes and provocative lyricism.

The album’s title and closing track was inspired by Cramer’s sudden loss of a best friend to suicide. “I came up with the lyrics to ‘Ode To A Friend’ 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 finally felt vulnerable enough to put out music that was close to me.”

Over the summer, Old Sea Brigade released the single/video for album track “Hope.” Ones To Watch commented, “Restrained yet impassioned vocals are met with rolling, finger-picked guitar and swells of panoramic synth,” while Atwood added, “At times singer-songwriter, other times indie-rock – no matter the inspiration behind the mélange of styles, Cramer has created a soundscape of the utmost sincerity and beauty.”  Listen to “Hope” here: https://bit.ly/2NY4Rmc.

Old Sea Brigade will bring some of these songs to audiences across the country this fall while he supports Tall Heights on their 36-city North American tour alongside Frances Cone. All dates are below.

Old Sea Brigade’s 2016 self-titled debut EP featured single “Love Brought Weight,” which caught fire and has since generated almost 20 million Spotify streams. Between touring alongside Joseph, Luke Sital Singh, Lewis Watson, Julien Baker, John Paul White, and more, he released 2017’s Cover My Own EP. The song “Tidal Wave” quickly crossed the three-million-mark on Spotify.
