We are so excited the album is now available! You can stream the full-length album, “The Tide” right here. Or, you can purchase the album for $10 by clicking the “buy” button in the embedded player. Listen, enjoy, tell your friends!
The Crystal Ships’ debut album, “The Tide,” will be available on June 27, 2014. We cannot wait to share it with all of you. It has been a long journey to get to this point, but the result has been well worth the wait.
To those of you who helped make this happen by contributing to our Indiegogo campaign, thank you. We could not have made it without you. To those of you who will contribute by purchasing the album in the near future, thank you as well. Your contribution is equally magical.
Soon, you can experience the wonderful joy that comes from listening through “The Tide.” Until then, just be really, really excited about it.
Throughout this week we are releasing a series of parody videos to encourage and remind you to vote for us in the CBC Searchlight Competition. You can vote every day so please do! The winner of this competition receives $20,000 in music gear, profession studio recording time and (the most important to us) a slot at the CBC Music Festival in Vancouver alongside artists such as Tegan and Sara, Spoon, and Hannah Georgas.
Of the over 4,100 artists who entered, CBC made a list of 112 artists entered into the Searchlight competition that are “among the best, most well written, polished and interesting songs in the contest,” and The Crystal Ships is on it! And we made it into the regional semi-finals, which means another week of voting to try and top the other 24 in the top 25 new artists from Kelowna. Vote for The Crystal Ships by visiting our CBC page and clicking vote. Every day!
Also, if you’re interested, take a look at the Searchlight Mega Playlist of Amazing Discoveries and see if you can discover some great new Canadian musicians. The folks who compiled the list clearly have great taste.
We have an awesome opportunity to be a part of the CBC Music Searchlight competition, and we need your help to succeed. If, by April 6, we are among the top 25 most voted for artists in our area we advance in the competition. You can vote every day between now and April 6th.
To vote, just follow this link to our CBC Music artist page: http://music.cbc.ca/artists/The-Crystal-Ships
We have prepared a brief tutorial that teaches you how to vote, just to make sure it is super clear:
All who vote will be the recipients of our most sincere and undying gratitude.
Thanks so much!

The second video of The Crystal Ships playing music in the kitchen. Thanks Paul, you’re the best.
The Crystal Ships with the Christmas Good Time Family Band singing “Go Tell it On the Mountain,” a Christmas classic. A happy, heartwarming good time for all.
Our good friend and ally, Paul McClellan, made a video of us performing our song “Wish I Had Known You” in my kitchen. It was great fun setting up our “The Crystal Ships” sign in the middle of my house. It took a bit of rearranging to accommodate all of our gear and us and all of Paul’s gear, but it was well worth it in the end. Paul’s camera work sure is great too, I think he made us look good.
So here it is, live from my kitchen, The Crystal Ships!
