10/2015 - It Surrounds Us - EP



This Diamond Life formed in 2012, born from the musical incubator that is Austin, TX. Front man Josh Rosenquist and drummer Matt Grubb - childhood friends and long time music collaborators - had been hosting weekly jam sessions with a rotating cast of local Austin musicians.  It was there that they connected with bassist Shiloh Travis and guitarist David Hoover.  Over time, these larger jam sessions would distill down to the most essential elements, and This Diamond Life was formed.   

This Diamond Life has a sound that is hard to categorize.  Formed organically from a diverse set of musical influences ranging from Radiohead to Bruce Springsteen to Chris Cornell, their music is devoid of pretense or superficial attempts at being something its not.  Refreshing, authentic rock and roll music. While their style and sound has brought comparisons to My Morning Jacket and Pink Floyd, in the case of This Diamond Life, the whole is not only greater, but something all together unique.  

This Diamond Life released their debut EP - It Surrounds Us - in October of 2015.  A chance encounter with James Petralli of White Denim/Bop English during an earlier studio effort prompted the band to develop in a more introspective direction.  The songs for the new EP naturally coalesced around themes of connection vs. isolation and wrapped themselves around the warm tones of 70s AM radio.  They are currently working on new material for this first full length record due out in the summer of 2016.  They can be seen playing live shows at the numerous quality live music venues around Austin.  Look for them at SXSW 2016!  They currently have no tour plans outside of the Austin environs.
