Diane Birch / Press

“2009 Ones To Watch”

Billboard Magazine

“An attack of mellow precision...polished and working through a softly emphatic style honed to a sharp point by Carly Simon and Carole King three decades ago...”

New York Times

“Bible Belt seems almost like an American response to the neo-soul stylings of Amy, Lily, Adele, et al.—old-timey and soulful with a dose of homegrown, Stevie Nicks-esque twang.”

Paper Magazine

“Singer-songwriter Diane Birch, armed with a brazen voice that harks back to an earlier era, is about to set the world on fire with her debut album Bible Belt.”

The Daily Texan

“Birch has the perfect ear, sound, and writing style for the era when Carly Simon, Elton John and the Doobie Brothers ruled the airwaves. Her kind of formal pop song - with its perfectly rounded melodies, and every-note-in-place arrangements - rescues a lost art.”

NY Daily News

“Her too perfect to be real talent and charisma are the things that robots are made of, yet somehow she makes it all seem achingly vulnerable and real... If Diane doesn't become a huge music force, I may have to ask the world to meet me at the flagpole at recess for a huge pummeling.”

“Must Have Songs of 2009” - NY Post

“…she pays tribute to the classics too—Motown, Delta Blues, old-fashioned pop—without sounding musty, combining the emotional sensibility of Diana Krall with the soulful backbone of Lucinda Williams.”

Vanity Fair

“Move over, Amy, Adele, and Duffy: The British blue-eyed-soul brigade gets some serious competition from this Yankee on her debut. 3.5/4 stars.”

Critic’s Choice - People Magazine

“Amy Winehouse-style retro pop, minus dysfunction… Her welterweight voice is strong and fetching… “Fools” conjures Carole King, “Nothing But A Miracle” echoes Aretha…the melodies stick, and girl’s got taste.”

Rolling Stone

“You have to hear this woman. She sounds like the second coming of Carole King… I was impressed with her soulful songs.””

USA Today.com

“You have to hear this woman. She sounds like the second coming of Carole King… I was impressed with her soulful songs.””

USA Today.com

“Diane Birch has constructed a freshman release that could possibly challenge the music industry to step up to the plate. Written entirely by Diane, Bible Belt is a layered euphony of creativity that won't be ignored....A pure indication that this gal is a one-in-a-million talent.”

New York Post

“Rarest is the artist who appears as if out of thin air fully formed, with a voice both contemporary and comfortably steeped in history. That exceptional list includes Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Norah Jones and, now, the young bohemian Diane Birch.”

Modern Tonic

“Rarest is the artist who appears — as if out of thin-air — fully-formed, with a voice both contemporary and comfortably steeped in history. That exceptional list includes Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Norah Jones and, now, the young bohemian Diane Birch.”

Modern Tonic

“Diane Birch croons with a stirring, well-traveled voice that belies her young age.”

Vanity Fair Online

“I’VE SEEN THE FUTURE OF SINGER-SONGWRITERS AND HER NAME IS DIANE BIRCH… BIBLE BELT IS MORE THAN WELCOMING – IT’S DOWNRIGHT THRILLING!”
