Seattle-based band Deep Sea Diver has been getting creative with their weekly live stream performances on Instagram Live. Each week they give fans a “stem” — a drum beat or guitar riff to play with and create a song out of. The best songs get featured in Deep Sea Diver’s entertaining live stream sessions. Deep Sea Diver even used their own stems from the project to create their single, “Stop Pretending.”
We also hear from a Seattle Opera tenor who is spending his weekday evenings singing opera arias to his neighbors from his front lawn.
Death Cab for Cutie’s Ben Gibbard talks about his Live from Home concert series he’s been doing since mid-March and why it was important for his performances to be benefit shows that give back to local Seattle-area organizations and charities.
