Ship Thieves was originally born as an outlet for songs and ideas that Chris Wollard was working on that didn’t necessarily fit with Hot Water Music. Casually, these late night porch jams and mellow all-night-drive soundtracks took shape and friends and fellow musicians were drawn into Wollard’s orbit. A debut album, s/t, was born in 2009. The current line up of the band was locked in for the band’s sophomore album, Canyons, which was recorded and released in 2012. The latest record, No Anchor, was released at the beginning of 2016. The songs on No Anchor show Ship Thieves embracing an unruly step and speed, while still maintaining a heavy emphasis on the power of practical songwriting and precise lyricism.
