Songs from Nowhere
From the moment Diggsville took the stage, their eclectic sets of funky lounge groove and downtempo mix put Bay Area bookers and fans on their ears. Evoking musical effects of Portishead, Massive Attack, Sneaker Pimps and St. Germain, Diggsville's lush female vocals, dreamy keys, enigmatic samples, funky bass, driving drums and wild sax unite for a uniquely seductive blend of retro and contemporary elements. Diggsville began as a musical entity while contributing to the soundtrack of the independent film, 'In the Wake' by Erica Jordan. After cruising the festival circuit, percussionist Randy Odell and vocalist Karen Mitchell enlisted the piano skills of David von Holder. His rich synth textures and poignant melodic sensibilities provided the perfect complement to Randy Odell's timely grooves, both coming from a strong jazz and R&B background. Bassist David Hermocillo drives it to the ground and saxophonist Nadine Whitfield adds subtle soul to the evocative lyrics and haunting vocals of Karen Mitchell for an extraordinary sound, drawing upon influences that include hip-hop, electronica, slow-core and jazz. Diggsville is satiating music junkies everywhere with substantially captivating grooves.
