Seattle’s Deep Sea Diver is out with their third album, 'Impossible Weight.' The album was written after frontwoman Jessica Dobson's experience with depression.
“I just hit this crazy wall where everything turned black and I couldn’t see a foot in front of me,” Dobson says.
On the journey to heal and overcome that sadness, Dobson started volunteering with a non-profit that works with unhoused, drug dependent Seattle-area residents. Conversations with folks there inspired the song, "Switchblade." Dobson says those conversations helped her tap into a stronger compassion for herself and empathy for others.
