Multi-talented musician  Jessica Dobson from Seattle band Deep Sea Diver. Even if her name doesn’t ring a bell right away, you probably know her work because she’s toured with one of your favorite bands The Shins, and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and Beck (as their guitarist).

But her own band Deep Sea Diver, have released their second music video from the most recent album, “Secrets”.
It’s called “Wide Awake,” and the moody video will jolt you wide awake with Dobson’s bold, breathy lyrics that come in after a steady musical build-up.
“Wide awake / And I’m chasing after you / Like a tidal wave / Rushing around the heels of your every move”
We love the delicate balance of explosive rock and low-key intimacy that Deep Sea Diver has achieved here, not to mention the strength of Dobson’s vocal.

She’s barely in her 30s, but Jessica Dobson is already on the third leg of her career. Signed to Atlantic as a wide-eyed 19-year-old, she left two records on their shelf before touring in bands for the likes of Beck and Conor Oberst, with stints in Spoon and The Shins, as well. She’s been releasing her own music as Deep Sea Diver since 2009; Secrets is its fourth release. Her guitar chops have always been undeniable, but Dobson’s growth as a songwriter is most apparent here.

Jessica Dobson is an American singer and multi-instrumentalist. She has performed with several musicians and bands, including Beck, Conor Oberst, Spoon and Yeah Yeah Yeahs, as well as being a solo artist. She currently serves as guitarist for American indie rock band The Shins as well as fronting and playing guitar

 

Jessica Dobson is pure rock and roll, but you can feel heaps of elements coming together on (the new album)” Dobson’s voice soars over the band’s heavily layered sound, but everything locks together, gelling into something dense and triumphant a complex, precisely arranged and lyrically pensive suite of songs… achieves tremendous density and depth. Deep Sea Diver’s new album “Secrets” will be out Feb 19th, 2016 on High Beam Records. Full North American tour throughout February and March. Maybe British dates this summer.
