Interview: Jessica Dobson (Deep Sea Diver)

I spoke with Jessica Dobson, the singer, songwriter, and guitarist of Deep Sea Diver on August 8, 2014. After years of an unfruitful relationship with major label Atlantic Records, she forged out on her own and began a full-on band: Deep Sea Diver. Prior to 2014, the band released an EP (New Caves [2009]) and a full length (History Speaks [2012]).

This is my conversation with Jessica about the release, their upcoming sophomore full length, and her run-in with latenight host Conan O’Brian.
