The Good Ship Band

The Good Ship Band is a rock pop four piece from Tonbridge, Kent, UK. Formed in March 2009, the band have sold over 1000 copies of their debut album, released 6 singles, supported Keane, and have received 11 record deal offers to date; testimony to their relentless gigging throughout the South East and two irresistibly melodic albums. Propelled by the songsmithery of frontman Jez Harley and guitarist/signed songwriter Ed Bingham (NorthStar Music), the band's recent airplay has drawn comparisons with Fleet Floxes, Paolo Nutini and Kings of Leon.

With top bassist James Elliott and session drummer Simon Whiting completing the line-up, the band’s live reputation has resulted in the act being sought out by all corners of the industry. Following a flood of offers, TGSB were approached by video-makers Blindeye Films (Sigur Ros, Bryan Ferry, Eliza Doolittle) and the two parties collaborated to produce a stunning promo for live favourite ‘Hometown’. With such momentum, the band released 'Boomerang Girl' followed shortly by the eagerly anticipated second album, 'The Good Ship Band - Part 2’. Part 3 is already on the way, with more live shows booked and recording dates in the pipeline.
