Locals Only Artist of the Month: Deep Sea Diver


November 2, 2015

Seattle has long been a frontier town that attracts musicians who want to invent and reinvent – from Jimi Hendrix to Kurt Cobain to the next unnamed musical star. While the sound may change from decade to decade, the Northwest’s music scene is as vibrant as ever. And here at The End we feel it’s important to help put our homegrown talent in the forefront by giving you a taste of our city's musical richness.

Locals Only! Hosted by Pepper & Steven Graham

Sunday nights 8pm-10pm

When you hold the kind of resume that Jessica Dobson does, you have options. You can continue to parlay your role as an established touring musician into enviable gigs that will earn you a paycheck, or you can choose to close that chapter for the chance to write another. Dobson recently opted for the latter, leaving behind her life as a touring guitarist lending support to a constellation of acts including Beck, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and The Shins, to focus completely on her own band, Deep Sea Diver, which she helms along with drummer and husband Peter Mansen.

Deep Sea Diver has enjoyed a swift rise through the Seattle music scene. The attention they've garnered is attributable in part to a spell binding live show in which the physicality of Mansen's drumming is on full display, along with Dobson's ability to command a room with nothing but her voice.

After releasing the "Always Waiting" EP in Sept of 2014 that featured the enigmatic electro pop gem "One By One" and the hypnotizing ballad "Always Waiting", the band is gearing up for the release of their second album “Secrets” which will be out in early 2016.
