Diane Birch-Bible Belt CD Review

Have you ever heard of Diane Birch?

I had heard of her but not had a chance to hear her music. Thanks to One2One Network for giving the opportunity to review this cd.

Her music is soultry just like her face in the picture of her CD. Her songs are soothing to the soul. You would never think this music was coming from such a person. What a voice! I don't think there is anything like this out their in the music industry. Popping in this cd took to me to a different place. Her music is wonderful and so are the lyrics. Check out her cd which was just released this month.

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.
