Good vocals that soothing and relaxing.
I didn't know what to expect from this new artist, Diane Birch. I had never heard of her before and was not a big fan of this type music. It seems to have a little of a gospel, soul, R&B, and classic rock sound. However, after the first song I was hooked.
Diane Birch ' s - Bible Belt album, opens with one of my favorites, "Fire Escape ' It is a soulful song, about loss and love. It will open your mind for what ' s to come on the rest of the album. Diane seduces you with the lyrics and slowly entices you with the melodies. Her voice is relaxing.
"Bible Belt" was recorded in New York City and New Orleans with the same producers who collaborated on Joss Stone's first albums. Her music speaks volumes about heartbreak, love, and loss. ' Rise Up ' , is another inspiring song that carries and upbeat tempo that soon has you feeling uplifted even through the tears.
As I was growing up, I listened to a lot of Carol King, which Diane reminds me a lot of. She has been compared to a whole host of musicians, but really does have her own sound.
Overall, the Diane Birch ' s Bible Belt has the right balance of songs with the right balance of themes; love, pain, heartache. I recommend this album for all ages. It is a must to add to your music collection.
