Recording artist, Diane Birch is poised to release her sophomore album entitled, “Speak a Little Louder,” on October 15th, 2013 (S-Curve). Fans and music lovers can presently enjoy the first single from the new album - “All The Love You Got.” The single is available through all digital downloading outlets.
The album features sixteen selections, which mark a distinct progression for Diane compared to her debut release, “Bible Belt.” Writing both alone and with acclaimed Dap Kings-drummer-turned-producer, Homer Steinweiss on much of this new record, together with Aqualung’s Matt Hales (Lianne La Havas, Paloma Faith) and Eg White (of Adele fame).
Birch mixes piano-playing virtuosity with easy-going soul, and 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) and 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 and classic AM radio-style melodies.
Diane is schedule to headline along with Kodaline, at The World Café Live, Upstairs (Thursday, October 10, 2013- Time 8PM)
