Music Review: Diane Birch Bible Belt

Thursday, June 11, 2009

Imagine yourself visiting the French Quarter in the heart of New Orleans. As you walk down the historic, narrow streets, the sounds of the French Creole culture embraces you; sounds that are a mixture of blues and jazz that reaches into the heart of one's soul.

Diane Birch brings home her own special blend of those Delta Blues and mixes it with old-timey, soulful sound that gives her personally written music a unique touch.

Directly from Birch's bio: "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."

And there is absolutely no better way to describe it.

I love music created by independent artists. So I was thrilled when I was given the chance to try Diane Birch's release Bible Belt.

I immediately fell in love and Diane Birch gained a new fan.

As I listened to songs such as Fire Escape, I was reminded of time spent in the French Quarter and Beale Street in Memphis, Tennessee; the sounds that reach out from the neon lit, hazy nightclubs and endear you to the area, making you felt at home.

Music that conjures up an array of emotions.

If you enjoy the music of Carole King, Linda Ronstadt, Stevie Nicks, Joss Stone, and/or Cat Power - or similar artists - you will definitely want to pick up a copy of Diane Birch's debut album Bible Belt.

Grab your free MP3 download of Fire Escape! Then listen to more clips from Bible Belt, visit Diane Birch at Myspace.
