Electric violin. Acoustic Guitar. Hand Drums. Upbeat, progressive pop-rock. A whole lot of fun, and a whole lot of sweat. It's like nothing you've ever seen or heard before.


Glorydive plays rock music with electric violin, hand drums, acoustic guitar, and bass guitar. We put this instrument line-up together in February of 2002. Going by the name Taylor Roberts Music, we released a five song EP titled Show and Tell (2003) and a full-length album titled This Weather (2004). In 2006, we changed our name to glorydive and recorded our first full-length album (self-titled) under this moniker. The new album contains 12 songs, most of which were written and played live over the past two years. We tracked the songs live, sans click-tracks, at Overdub Lane in Durham, NC with Engineer John Plymale. This gave us the energy we wanted in each of the tracks; an energy that is only found when the band plays together on stage. After a minimal amount of overdubs at our home studio in Raleigh, we came back to Overdub Lane to have Plymale mix the project. With its pseudo-live sound and variety of emotion conveyed through each of the 12 songs, this self-titled album truly represents the growth of glorydive and the five year journey we’ve been on to get to where we are now.
