dig engine

“Steady and impeccable instrumentation, heavy rhythms and dirty guitar lines backed by . . . powerful vocals”

            - Listen Live and Local


Based out of Chicago’s near west suburbs, Dig Engine writes original songs that look at the joys and struggles of life and relationships through an ultimately hopeful lens. Fronted by the powerful and soulful vocals of Tammy Masau, Dig creates a sonic landscape of complex melodies with two guitars, played by Joe Giordano and Andy Boockmeier, over a tight, but nuanced, rhythm section of drummer Steve Hovey and bassist Pete Drever.  Dig's songs capture and reveal their collective influences from Son to Moon, Dee Dee to da da, Trey to Tweedy, and Irma to Zappa. Hardcore, jazz and straight out radio rockers.  Dig the dig.

Genre: rock 

Sounds like: Tedeschi Trucks Band, My Morning Jacket, Thin Lizzy, Flaming Lips

Horeli Asoli

Dig's debut EP captures the range of their songwriting from the earnest "If" to the punk influenced "Arrow." Horeli also has "Offline Aventine," an homage to Cheap Trick-style radio rock and crowd favorite "Trampoline."

High fidelity stereo-matic sound

Dig's 2018 follow-up release continues to showcase great songwriting and melody over solid driving rock.  From the plaintive hope of "In Between" to the complex rhythms of "Elixir," HiFi delivers more favs that are the foundations of Dig's live shows.
