Coming together in San Diego from three different parts of the US and three very different musical backgrounds, The Tall Ships
trio find common ground that somehow works. This unique blend of differences gives the sense they grew up listening to very different music but for very similar reasons. And this mash-up of perspectives gives The Tall Ships a sound that's fresh, different and yet still familiar.
The Tall Ships have toured Western and Central Europe and played numerous shows in San Diego sharing the stage with Fin Fang Foom, Sleeping People, Rob Crowe, An Albatross, Milemarker, Rah Bras and Transfer.
The Tall Ships are Steve Kuhn (guitar, vocals), Kyle Conwell (bass, vocals), Keith Andrew (drums)
