Old Sea Brigade



Oct 2024


We never know where life will take us. The path forever twists and turns in unexpected directions. Singer, songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Ben Cramer a.k.a. Old Sea Brigade, never imagined he would be living almost 5,000 miles away from his native Georgia in Sweden as a husband and father. However, that’s where he is now!

Such reflections have defined the music of Old Sea Brigade since 2016. Listeners have followed along as Ben effectively journaled his life aloud across projects such as Old Sea Brigade EP [2016], Ode To A Friend [2019], All The Ways You Sing in the Dark EP [2020] with Luke Sital-Singh, Motivational Speaking [2021], and 5AM In Paradise [2022]. His catalog has quietly generated hundreds of millions of streams anchored by “Love Brought Weight,” “Tidal Wave,” “Hope,” and “Call Me When You Land” [with Luke Sital-Singh]. Beyond inciting the applause of Boston Globe, Brooklyn Vegan, Consequence, No Depression, Uncut, Under The Radar, and more, he made his national television debut with a stunning appearance on CBS Mornings “Saturday Sessions.”

Ultimately, Old Sea Brigade’s music is just as endearing as his life is.

Old Sea Brigade has been my creative outlet for so many of my formative years as an adult,” he concludes. “The catalog is there to document how I felt in all of these changes and normal events that followed me around for the last eight years. I’m incredibly grateful for this life. I wouldn’t have met my wife if it wasn’t for Old Sea Brigade. It’s the reason I came to Sweden. It’s the reason I’m a dad. It’s the reason I’ve met so many of my friends. These relationships are just as important as the music is.
