BRAVE THE SEA BIO
In the summer of 2015, four guys from the small town of Newark, OH (Matthew Toskin, Matt Bibler,Ryan Boggs, and Will John) decided to form a Celtic Rock band covering everything from the traditional Celtic tunes to the modern renditions of bands such as Flogging Molly, Dropkick Murphys, and Alestorm.
The band, at the time, was named A Pirate's Life and took heavily to their pirate theme. But after about a year and a few member changes/additions, A Pirate's Life had written an album's worth of original material and landed a full-time singer in Vito Gambill and a new drummer in Dennis Berrents.
In 2017 the band released their first album, A Pirate's Life (the name in homage to their beginnings) with the help of Logan Williams (Nothing Less). Their 2019 follow up, The Kraken, highlights even more of their unique sound and Celtic Rock riffs. Helmed by Tim Waters (Nothing Less, We Are The Movies), The Kraken is sure to be the next must-have Celtic Rock release.
In 2019 they built up a lot of momentum. It saw the band get invited to play the Dublin Irish Festival, Summerfest music festival for a third time, and the Maryland Folk Metal Fest V.
While Brave The Sea still carries on the antics of their A Pirate's Life days, the band has grown a lot musically and internally. They are setting sail to take over the world, one sea at a time!
