Diane Birch is a piano-rock singer-songwriter from Brooklyn with particular nostalgia for the finest sounds of yesteryear’s pop. Influences and intrigues including Phil Collins, The Velvet Underground, and Drake shows her affinity for soulful singalongs. With aid from Aqualung’s Matt Hales and constant world travels, Diane has realized her true potential on recent release, “Speak a Little Louder.”
The record delves into the depths of womanhood, loss of love, and breaking emotional ties all while preaching a defiant optimism. She finds a bright groove in even the most downtrodden tracks, defining her sound in that severe contrast. Touring across the world, including a Billboard Japan stint in late March, proves the dedication of Diane’s diverse fan base, and the powerful way she wields her downright lovely demeanor.
