Diane Birch at the World Cafe Live
Singer-songwriter Diane Birch has all the trademarks of a seasoned veteran. On her first album, Bible Belt, Birch showcases her songwriting maturity, perspective, and sheer talent. Skillfully blending soul, rock and pop, she is getting rave reviews and has a growing number of fans worldwide.
Birch moved to Los Angeles with hopes of becoming a film composer. She learned piano and became a musician for hire, playing with musicians such as Prince. She began taking voice lessons and writing her own material. Birch was then contacted by a manager in England - who discovered her on MySpace - and helped her earn a record deal.
Bible Belt arrived in June to positive reviews by critics and fans alike. The album blends soulful melodies with the best elements of classic rock, jazz, and blues. Her vocal and musical style has been favorably compared to Norah Jones and Amy Winehouse.
