Diane Birch – Stand Under My Love
Diane Birch is a singer-songwriter-pianist with some nice vocal chops and a back catalog of wonderful music. She has released two long-players, Bible Belt (2009) and Speak A Little Louder (2013), as well as two additional EPs, The Velveteen Age (with The Phenomenal Handclap Band) and iTunes Sessions, both from 2010. Stand Under My Love is from her January 2016 EP, NOUS.
Diane evokes emotional undertones with her vocal inflections that add weight to the lyrics she delivers. Her songwriting provides an often melancholy vibe, but has the effect of making you listen more closely. On first listen, Diane’s music takes precedence, leaving you marveling and dreaming. Subsequent listening will likely have you listen more closely to the lyric line. The music she creates is always beautiful.
