“We all moved to Charleston (SC) on the same day, and there was nothing else in our minds but forming a kick ass touring rock band”, says frontman, Luke Mitchell. With some extensive tours under their belts, as well as some opening slots for notable acts such as Nathaniel Rateliff & The Nightsweats, Delta Spirit, Shovels & Rope and Drivin N Cryin; The High Divers are steadily becoming exactly what they’d envisioned since day one.
Riverlust, the group’s debut record, released fall of 2015, found its way onto many “best of” lists and was warmly received up and down the East Coast. The band has quickly gained a foothold in the Carolina music scene as well, starting to sell out various venues in Charleston, Beaufort and Hilton Head Island. “We’ve been touring non-stop” says Mitchell, “We feel so static whenever we’re home for more than a couple of days”.

The Band is quickly approaching putting the final touches on their Sophomore release which is due out mid-September. “There’s been a little bit of a departure from any sort of “twang” on this record, says Mitchell “We don’t really want that “Southern Rock” moniker to follow us around forever, as we feel we’re so much more versatile than that label” . A band that would have felt equally as comfortable in the 60’s Detroit Motown scene as they would hanging out in Topanga Canyon in the early 70’s, The High Divers are creating songs that nod towards music of the past, while pushing ahead all the time.

Thorp Jenson and his band the Eastern Frieghtliner create music cut straight from the Amercian landscape; a nod to the Rock and roll, southern soul, and country music that has been brewing for a century and a half. Some folks would call it Americana or rock and roll, but if you asked Thorp he would tell you it is just Amercian music; a stew stirred in the heartland underneath the Viginia skies Thorp and his band call home.
