The Gunboat Diplomats are an independent song shop in Jacksonville Beach, Florida that records original music with a vintage vibe in a variety of genres.
They have just completed the first two songs for their new record called “Manifest Destiny.” They are available for free streaming and downloading at Bandcamp (https://gunboatdiplomats.bandcamp.com/album/manifest-destiny) and on their web site (http://www.gunboatdiplomats.com). One is old school Bakersfield country and the other is folk.
The Gunboat Diplomats are the best-kept secret on the indie scene, and will be for the foreseeable future. Their melodic music, which is rich in harmonies with a distinctive vintage vibe, has been described as “music that is rich in harmonies with a distinctive vintage vibe.” When they are not writing and recording in Zoe Tribe Studios, they enjoy sending unsolicited promotional emails to unsuspecting recipients.
