Thollem
Thollem
With a synthesizer and a microphone, Thollem forges a quality brew of revolutionary entertainment somewhere between PsychPunk, WorldBlues, NoiseLounge and Post-Americana. He'll be touring the U.S. with his newest album, Greatest Hits Vol. 1, the first in a series of new renditions of older songs from bands and projects of his like Tsigoti and Always Put On Your Sincere Face. With "fluid keys pulverization" (Brad Cohan, Spin Magazine), Thollem’s work is ”a forward vocal delivery … that comes a-swingin’ right out of the gate" (Chocolate Grinder, Tiny Mix Tapes).

Over the last decade, Thollem's performed and recorded throughout North America and Europe with hundreds of musicians from a wide variety of genres resulting in more than 60 albums on 22 different vanguard labels. As a vocalist, he's been releasing albums and touring with his Italian agit-punk band Tsigoti (5th album coming this year) and Hand To Man Band (Mike Watt, John Dieterich, Tim Barnes), plus his collaborative album with the conceptual artist Andy Kaufman Always Put On Your Sincere Face.

Thollem has performed and recorded with members of Deerhoof, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Minutemen, Half Japanese, Old Time Relijun, Cibo Matto, The Stooges, Wilco, Unwound, Jealousy Party, Stars Like Fleas, Tenderizor, A Love Electric, Can and more.
Amy Denio
Amy Denio
Amy Denio is based in Seattle Washington, and is an award-winning singer, composer, multi-instrumentalist, improviser, record producer and recording engineer. Nominated into the Seattle Jazz Hall of Fame in 2015, she is a

self-taught musician ~ her parents both played jazz bass. Her main instruments are voice, accordion, alto sax, clarinet, electric guitar, bass, found sound, and theremin.

She has been producing music in her own Spoot Studios since she was a teenager, and founded Spoot Music, her record label and publishing company in 1986. Since then, has composed, recorded and produced more than 400 compositions, releasing dozens of solo and collaborative recordings on Spoot Music and other record labels from America and beyond.

At the High Dive, Amy will be performing with voice & electronics, and perhaps with one of her other main instruments.
Derek Johnson Love
Derek Johnson Love
Derek Johnson Love of Olympia is a cellist who artfully uses too many effects pedals to produce music/noise/sound that is deeply introspective and agnostically spiritual. Derek is currently exploring the catharsis of grief and love while tearing down a lifetime of personal wall using the music of Prince as a canvas.
