A Cover Version of Nick Cave's "The Ship Song"

Greetings! 15 years ago I was asked by my friends to sing this song on their wedding ceremony. In my youth I had played the trumpet on such occasions, but never before had I been asked to sing. As I recall I was hesitant about the whole idea. But it went surprisingly well, so this was my go-to solution when I was asked to sing by another friend for his wedding some years later. And more recently I did it again for my cousins on their respective weddings. Through the years there were also some wedding guests who suggested it might be worth making a recorded version too. So here we are! Due to licensing restrictions the track will not be available on Bandcamp as a download, but the song is available on most other streaming platforms as of today:
