Jessica Dobson is the fearless multi-instrumentalist, singer and band leader for Deep Sea Diver. Cutting her teeth at a young age playing lead guitar for artists such as Beck and James Mercer (The Shins) Jessica learned a thing or two about writing a song and putting on a show. In late 2013, Dobson put in her notice to former Shins boss, in order to give full attention to her own musical vision. Mercer agreed, saying ìIíll miss you, but I give you my full support. Youíve gotta pursue Deep Sea Diverî. ìGood thing too,î noted Stereogum, ìbecause Jessica is an incredible front woman.î
Deep Sea Diver, urgently and deliberately move you from rock experimentation to dreamy soundscapes, Kraut-esque drum and bass grooves to angular danci-ness, and full fledged orchestration to bare bones simplicity. Dobson has the voice and authority to tie it all together, and turn it into a cohesive unit that soars yet remains beautifully delicate and intimate. Live, the band has received acclaim for their festival-ready power and presence, Jessicaís larger than life guitar hooks, and their cascading layers that build upon each other until they reach their explosive peak.
Jessica and band (comprised of husband Peter Mansen on drums, Garrett Gue on bass, and Elliot Jackson on guitar and synth) have together created a sound and experience that is colorful, energetic, and variedówith an emotional depth and pulsating charge that demands the listeners full attention.
