Touched by the light that was streaming into the second floor of Philadelphia’s Standard Tap, Ben Cramer picked at his guitar and let his stories unfold, his voice a beacon of the warmth, gravity and concern rippling throughout soul-searching verses of “Seen A Ghost” and “Love Brought Weight.” Currently based in Nashville, the Atlanta born musician known as Old Sea Brigade recently followed up two critically acclaimed EPs - 2016’s Old Sea Brigade and 2017’s Cover My Own - with his first ever full-length collection of music. Arriving in January 2019, Ode To A Friend expands his catalogue with a somber rush of emotion and a vivid sonic palette that’s at once as understated and gripping as his performances.


“Seen A Ghost” can be found on the newly released Ode To A Friend, while “Love Brought Weight” can be found on Old Sea Brigade
