“We just wanted to be a kickass, road­ready, rock ’n’ roll band”, muses
frontman, Luke Mitchell, of South Carolina based rock outfit, The High
Divers; and with 4 years of steady national touring, 2 studio albums, and a
growing fanbase that have come to love their raucous live shows: it would
seem the band is making good on those original plans.
With anthemic choruses, lush 3 part harmonies, and rhythms rooted just as
deeply in Motown as in rock ’n’ roll of the past and present, The High
Divers create songs that nod to the classics, while carving out a sonic
space all their own. A fixture of the South Carolina music scene, the band
is known for it’s charismatic on­stage swagger and it’s ability to get the
crowd completely and unabashedly involved. “Every show we play, I get
people to sing along with us, and it’s a beautiful thing, something I look
forward to every night” says Luke Mitchell, of the call and response hidden
within the song “Summertime”.
The band is comprised of husband and wife, Luke Mitchell (Guitar/Vocals)
and Mary Alice Mitchell (Keyboards, Vocals), along with Julius DeAngelis
(Drums) and Kevin Early (Bass/Vocals). “We are here today, probably
because Kevin was about 4 and learning to ride a bike in our
neighborhood” says Mitchell, “then ended up hitting my Dad’s van”. “We
grew up together and have been playing music in various bands since we
were 14” says Early. Each member of the band grew up on Hilton Head
Island, before relocating to Charleston to officially form The High Divers,
where they began immediately recording their debut album, “Riverlust”.
The High Divers’ Sophomore album, “Chicora” brought the band out on the
road for most of the last year signaling the return of the group after being
sidelined by an auto accident during a tour out west. Released on True
Blue Records, “Chicora” captures the band experimenting with
synthesizers, psychedelic vocals, and pop sensibilities that could bring to
mind the “Rumors” era of Fleetwood Mac. The album features Mary Alice
Mitchell’s song, “Side Man” described as “A striking moment on the
album...because of its narrative and the novelty of Mary Alice's vocals,
"Side Man" is Chicora's most affecting song” (Chris Conaton/Popmatters).
The band recently finished recording in Nashville, TN, and are heading into
