How'd you get started in music?
I started in music when I was just out of high school, back in 2004. Been playing in bands almost ever since! We’ve all had time with other projects before coming together and forming Diving Horse.

Who are your inspirations or influences?
For me, I feel like I have a very NYC influence - LCD Soundsystem, Talking Heads. I also love a lot of disco and post-punk, both of those genres obviously gestated in the city. 

What advice would you offer aspiring performers?
My advice would be to keep going. It’s important that bands and artists don’t end overcome by all the challenges that we face, whether it’s access to the arts as a whole or AI. Writing music, whether alone or in a band, helps us understand ourselves and always has the potential to bring people together.

How do you set yourselves apart from other bands or singers?
We don’t take ourselves too seriously - see our recent social media posts for proof of that! We love to make music people want to move to, and we do that with make/female vocals and a lot of 4/4. I think we also have something to say, and our recent singles and our next single ‘I Don’t Need the Lord’ is proof of that. 

Any new gigs or albums in the future?
We’re working on booking some shows now so watch this space! ‘I Don’t Need the Lord’ is out 5 April and we’ll have more music out not long after that.
