Diane Birch: Bible Belt
Anyone who can turn that crappy dance jam ‘What is Love’ into an alluring tune of just voice and Wurlitzer is onto something. Diane Birch, an American singer/songwriter whose preacher dad led her around the world during her childhood, has collected enough insight from her travels to make her expressions all the more interesting. It’s not the ethnic influence that shines through, but rather a maturity that is rare to find in a young artist. Her debut Bible Belt is out today.
