I reviewed this CD and I have to say that I am definitely a fan of Ms. Birch now! The CD is very folksy and bluesy, and really hard to describe her style and voice. I've included some info about the CD and as it says she kind of has a Carole King/Stevie Nicks/Linda Ronstadt thing going on...then throw in some Joss Stone and you might come close. Go grab a copy and listen for yourself, you won't be disappointed. You won't hear any heavy metal or hard rock on this CD, but you will hard some gorgeous vocals and that laid back bluesy feel.

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 very cosmopolitan perspective on life that shines through her music and makes a simple categorization of it impossible. Keep reading about how Diane got her start...

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 and produced by the impressive Grammy-winning team who reunited for the first time since producing Joss Stone’s first albums.

The result is an instant classic, mixing brilliant piano playing with easy-going soul, gospel, blues, and much more. Equally inspired by Carole King as she is by Jerry Lee Lewis and Elton John, Diane creates her own sound with exceptional songwriting. Her performance on the piano, Rhodes, Wurlitzer and Farfisa showcases an extraordinary ability, but her melodies and lyrics put her in a league of her own. How awesome is she? Prince once saw her play and was intrigued enough to invite her out to jam with him and his band at his home!!!

Every year we lose more people to AIDS. It hasn't disappeared and it's not going away anytime soon. I urge you to seek out and support your local AIDS Organizations. Encourage everyone you know to practice safe sex and to get tested once a year. Even if you don't think you are at risk, get tested. I didn't think I was at risk either, and I almost died before I was diagnosed.
