Music of The Static Dive
The Static Dive is the professional name of singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist producer, Bob Smith. From his studio in upstate NY he works remotely with LA-based co-producer Kilo House to create genre-bending indie psychedelic rock, pop and Trip-hop.
An obsessive creator, Bob has spent the last 25 years making music and writing words. In the 90s he toured the Northeastern college circuit with his influential experimental ska/jam/funk band Shu. In the studio, over the years he has written and recorded hundreds of songs as a solo artist and with his americana/alternative rock band The Distractions.
Throughout his tenure in music, Bob has also worked extensively on the business side of the business. He made a big splash as a founding partner and the primary technical architect of the revolutionary HitPredictor.com song testing system. He has worked as a producer and host in both radio and television, and he has written for Billboard magazine, TV, radio, newspapers and now for his own popular music blog.
Since debuting as The Static Dive in 2018, Bob has released nearly two dozen tracks ranging from tripped out downtempo space instrumentals to radio-ready indie-pop bops. He has collaborated with artists from around the world. In 2021 The Static Dive was signed to German record label FBP Music Group.
And the adventure continues.
It’s like Jimi Hendrix, War and P-Funk got together to write a Pop song. “1986” is the latest single from The Static Dive, available everywhere April 15, 2021.
