Production Details

Free Dive, Unleashed in the Great Outdoors

Free Dive, featuring Jeff Cressman (trombone), Bryan Dyer (vocals), Cecilia Engelhart (vocals), Steve Hogan (bass/beatbox) and Keith Terry (drums/body music), has been performing and recording together since 2003. All the band members contribute original compositions and collaborate on arrangements. The absence of a chordal instrument gives Free Dive their evocative sound — open, transparent, cinematic. The band’s broad musical backgrounds allow Free Dive to explore many styles including Jazz, popular song and Latin American and African influenced musics.
