Her big brown eyes remind me of my 3 year olds eyes, so innocent and intriguing!
I got the New Diane Birch CD in the mail to review and to be honest with you… loved it!
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.
I’ve listened to Bible Belt at least a dozen times since getting it Friday, with my favorite song being Fools with a close second being Valentino which makes me want to get up and shake my hips to the fun, upbeat tune. It’s one of those CD’s that’s perfect to pop into your computers CD drive and start surfing away on the internet or tweet on Twitter.
Over on my sidebar I have a widget where you can click and buy Diane’s CD. If you buy it through the widget, $1 will go to ending child hunger!
