Singer-songwriter Diane Birch took half her lifetime & traveled across the globe to get to America, where she literally found her voice & made her remarkable debut, "Bible Belt." Though only in her mid-twenties, Birch likes to think of herself as an 'old soul' and indeed there is a startling maturity in her singing & a veteran's self-assurance in her writing. Now working on her follow-up album, "Speak A Little Louder," due out later this year, Birch mixes piano-playing virtuosity with easy-going soul, & she can strike an uplifting groove on even the most melancholy tune. Her work bears hints of Laura Nyro (when she was hanging out with LaBelle) & early 70's Karen Carpenter (when she was ruling the charts), while effortlessly incorporating New Orleans second-line rhythms, gospel fervor, doo-wop harmonies, country-blues guitar & classic AM radio-style melodies.
Don't miss the last night of her residency at Joe's Pub.
