Jessica Dobson’s resume reads like an indie rock dream. She’s served as the touring guitarist for Beck and the Shins as well as stints with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Spoon, and Divine Fits. Her years on the road have taken her to the main stage at Coachella and Bumbershoot and in front of the cameras on Saturday Night Live and Late Night with David Letterman. After years of invaluable experience as a backing player, Dobson’s now taking center stage as the frontwoman of her own band, Deep Sea Diver.

Based in Seattle, Deep Sea Diver is Dobson’s collaboration with her husband, drummer Peter Mansen. Rounded out by Garrett Gue (bass) and Elliott Jackson (synth, piano, guitar, vocals), the band spotlights Dobson’s pliable vocals, ferocious guitar shredding, and intimate songwriting. Deep Sea Diver is a channel for Dobson’s fearless experimentations in unexpected rhythms and melodies, thoughtful instrumentation, and heavy emotion.
