Diane Birch CD Review

Thanks to the One2One Network I have had the awesome opportunity to review the new Diane Birch cd which debuted on June 2nd. Here is some info about Diane Birch and her music.

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. "

To me Diane Birch sounds like a cross between Norah Jones and Joss Stone but very upbeat. I am listening to her cd as I type this and love the good move it is putting me in. So far my favorite song is called "Rise Up". It makes me feel empowered!

The best part is that for every album that is purchased through the widget above or on my sidebar, $1 will be donated to the March of Dimes! So if you are on the fence about buying the cd let me tell you that I love the cd and it is so cool to help out for a good cause!
