Ben Cramer is behind Old Sea Brigade. Born in Atlanta, and based in Nashville, this singer-songwriter has developed an interesting blend of folk, country, Americana, and indie rock. His song “Tidal Wave” is a stunning example of is sound.
Although the overall sound is mellow, Cramer’s lyrics and melodies are emotive. Opening with a guitar-driven intro, Cramer’s rich voice eventually comes in with the line, “it’s heavy now/ we don’t change/ come back down/ keep it safe.” The harmonies are expressive. The production is minimalist, yet extremely effective in creating a cinematic, sonic masterpiece.
