Daz GrayThe bad cabin boy

Daz Gray plays in The Good Ship. A bunch of no good pirates out to steal your kids and raid your liquor cabinet. That aside he’s a really sweet guy and ace songsmith.

Salty, scruffy and a little salacious, The Good Ship is a very bad ship. Their folk-country-pop-rock sounds draw comparisons with the likes of Nick Cave, The Decemberists and The Pogues, and the carousing and chaotic eight piece line up features mandola, banjo, lagerphone, guitar, trumpet, accordion and drums, as well as a not so heavenly host of voices. The success of their 2010 debut album Avast! Wretched Sea and their rousing live shows have seen the band snag a legion of dedicated fans, play to packed houses around the country and perform at major festivals including Woodford and Brisbane Festival.
