Cement Ship was launched on January 1st, 2017, in Santa Cruz California by singer/songwriter Tim Brady, just three weeks before the SS Palo Alto (the band’s namesake) was torn apart by heavy storm waves.

The music is inspired by the sea and it’s dynamic nature.  The acoustic guitar style and singing tone from Tim can fit a wide array of genres, but maintains a natural and stripped down approach for the sound.  Honest and raw, sweet and smoky.  It has been described as ‘americana soul’ and ‘beach folk’. Cement Ship has played in several states across the U.S. including various festivals, toured the U.K., been featured on local news, and is the winner of the 2019 ‘Band of the Year’ in their hometown. 

Music categories include:  Singer/songwriter, folk, indie, acoustic rock, soul, Americana.
