Louisville Music COVIDiary #48: So It Was "Diving Board"
Daniel Lobb's band is called So It Was. And so it was they submitted "Diving Board", a dreamy video of days when you could swim in public pools from years long ago for The Louisville Music COVIDiary during quarantine. Daniel says:
"This song is from the beginning of all this, when we were looking ahead without a clue. I had the same squirm in my stomach as I do on the high dive, so I wrote from the perspective of the crowd below - giving courage to the diver and hungry for the splash!
The video is from old family footage, mostly Louisville in the 60's. Memory has been such an important avenue for me. To look back on where we've been shows us where to go when things get going again. For my part I'm going straight to the water and diving in."

Welcome to The Louisville Music COVIDiary, a web series that highlights our City’s amazing and talented musicians as they deal with the effects of the COVID19 Pandemic. Because of the forced closure of our music venues and other places for artists to perform, many musicians are left without much needed income and disconnected from their audiences and each other. In this series, we have asked musicians to send us their homemade music videos as a way to stay connected in this strange and uncertain time.
If you'd like to participate please upload your video to Youtube then send the link to Laura Shine at email@example.com.
