One2One Network sent me a copy of Diane Birch's CD, Bible Belt, to listen to. I listed to it yesterday while surfing the net and WOW! What a great CD!
I love music, all kinds of it! From Rap to Rock-n-Roll, I'm very versatile when it comes to music. I'd previewed one of Diane's songs when it was Free Download of the Week at iTunes. Wow... I was blown away.
Her voice... reminds me of Joss Stone. Her words... so full of soul and have so much meaning. This CD is definitely a CD I'll be listening to more often!
Diane Birch's Bio:
For singer-songwriter Diane Birch, music was a refuge. Although Diane was born in Michigan, her childhood was spent on the move as the daughter of a preacher, living between Zimbabwe, South Africa and Australia, before her parents finally settled in Portland, Oregon. When she was in her early teens, Diane absorbed a unique and cosmopolitan perspective on life that shines through her music and makes a simple categorization of it impossible.
The result? Diane Birch sounds like an old favorite, with all the sparkle and magic of a breakthrough talent. People says she sounds like a combination of early Carole King, Linda Ronstadt and Stevie Nicks, with a little Joss Stone and Cat Power mixed in. Bible Belt is only her first record, but it’s one of the most accomplished albums you’ll hear all year. From the opening track “Fire Escape” to the closing “Magic View,” Diane’s stunning voice is mesmerizing.
Written entirely by Diane, Bible Belt was recorded in New York City and New Orleans with an impressive team of Grammy-winning producers: S-Curve Records founder Steve Greenberg, soul legend Betty Wright and Mike Mangini, in their first project together since producing Joss Stone’s first albums.
