The Love Dimension is a sacred psychedelic garage punk country surf band from San Francisco whose influences stem from an eclectic mix of music's past and future. Originally from the lost city of Atlantis, the band has prevailed through multiple reincarnations. In 2008, they returned to the Bay Area to create sonic architecture for the benefit of sentient beings across the multiverse.
Founder, Jimmy L. Dias, moved to the Bay Area in 2006 from Boston, where he played in several punk and indie rock bands such as Democracy Test, The Statue Factor, Runner and the Thermodynamics, and The Secret Channel. His musical influences range from 90s grunge to 60s psychedelia, and through his study of meditation, energy medicine, shamanic healing, and hypnotherapy, Jimmy channels energy-raising vibrations with his guitar playing and vocals.
Celeste Obomsawin is an integral part of the band, playing percussion, flute, harmonica, and megaphone, in addition to her versatile voice and heavenly harmonies. Celeste frequently incorporates her Native American heritage into her musical style. Before joining The Love Dimension in late 2008, she was a member of the Boston League of Women Wrestlers, and was blessed by the Black Panther, Huey P. Newton as a baby. Celeste was on stage in the womb, and following in her parents' footsteps, has been compelled to sing and make music since a young age.
Keyboardist, Devin Farney hails from the Bay Area, bringing a dose of Moog buzz and Vox fuzz. Farney is a founding member of the indie group Vox Pop, as well as a jazz performer, music teacher, and assistant to multiple composers, including Terry Riley. His loops and waveforms oscillate the love into a new dimension.
Sonny Pearce, San Francisco native, resides on the drum throne, holding it down for several SF acts, including Electric Shepherd. Bringing his unique style, power, precision, and wild fills, Sonny looks to take himself and others to great heights through his dynamic drumming.
Guitarist, Scott Hawkins moved to the Bay Area from Lincoln, Nebraska in September 2012. His influences stem from the music and art of the 60s and 70s, as well as heavier grunge and progressive metal. Hawkins is interested in mysticism, science fiction, and the nature of energy in the universe. Scott’s former musical acts include Birds and Melting Elephants. The Love Dimension entered his realm during a chance encounter while playing a show at his house in Lincoln during a US tour in May 2011.
Bassist, Tommy Anderson shreds through the matrix of reality, breaking down every last barrier between the music and the listener. Anderson is originally from San Francisco and plays in local bands, Nightmares and Daydreams, MoonFox, and Electric Shepherd.
The Love Dimension has played all over the Bay Area and has toured the west and east coasts, as well as the Midwest. They played at the 2011 and 2012 San Frandelic Summer Festival and were part of the Mission Creek Festival in 2009 and 2012. The Love Dimension has shared the stage with great bands, including Spindrift, Bare Wires, Jeffertitti's Nile, Battlehooch, Glitter Wizard, Zodiac Death Valley, Tim Cohen's Magic Trick, The Blank Tapes, Os Beaches, Free Moral Agents, The Hypnotist Collectors, The Lotus Moons, The Upside Down, Tumbleweed Wanderers, and Whiskerman.
With influences that span the musical universe, The Love Dimension sound is inspired by Spacemen 3, The Doors, Jefferson Airplane, Primal Scream, The Animals, Radiohead, The Yardbirds, Nirvana, Johnny Cash, Sleepy Sun, The Beatles, The Black Angels, Hank Williams, The Pixies, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, and many more amazing artists.
The band released their second album, Forget the Remember, on local SF label, Warrior Monk Records, and an EP, Not Until All Beings Are One, on the London based label, Smoky Carrot Records in late 2012. They are working on their third album, likely to be released in 2013, when they plan to tour more of the US and Europe.
Shining light through the spectrum of love and the inner journey, The Love Dimension continues to rock the audience out of their minds, into their hearts, and onto the dance floor.
