Ryan Woods (High Dive/Defiance, Ohio)
SPB: After playing in a larger band (in terms of # of people in the band), how is it to tour with a 3 piece?
Woods: This is a perfect question for High Dive. In fact, we started the band with the purpose of traveling light, only three of us in Toby's station wagon. It's less wasteful and you can really spend some quality time together. It's been an amazing experience these last couple years. But, I have to say I'm back to my old ways and High Dive just added two new members. Ginger Alford (Good Luck, One Reason) on guitar and Richard Wehrenberg Jr. (Monster House Press) on piano. So the future holds the return of big vans and complexity but, hopefully, some more interesting music as well. Our first show as a five piece will be at this year’s fest in Gainesville.
