“This is a good-vibe, rock-n-roll album reminiscent of Tom Petty, with a beautiful pairing of harmonies and melodies to keep these tunes stuck in your head for days.” -Greg Slatterly, STEREOFLY
The High Divers’ debut album is a must listen, and this band appears to be one of the more promising groups we’ve heard recently. And to borrow a line from “Give It Up,” if you appreciate genuine roots-rock with authentic Southern flavor, “you can have it any way you want it” with Riverlust. -Kyle Barfield, The Blue Indian
“With a deliciously stutter-stepping rhythm, funky, serpentine guitar lines and a chorus that just won’t quit, “Summertime” by Charleston, South Carolina band the High Divers makes a strong bid for a beach-bound playlist.” -KDHX
“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.
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.
