DianeBDiane Birch-Bible Belt
I wasn’t initially up on Diane Birch but as an early holiday gift someone gave me this album. I was blown away and quite frankly impressed. Her music is very eclectic and although she reminds me of so many vocal greats both new and old she is entirely in a lane of her own. I tried to pick a few songs that stood out to me and it was hard because I could actually pick each track as my individual favorite. I do find myself listening to Fire Escape and Photograph obsessively. When I played this album the first time I got the same chills I got the first time I heard Lauryn Hill sing-yes the girl is that good.

This would be a great gift for the person in your life that is a huge Janis Joplin, Aretha Franklin or even Joss Stone fan that is always griping about how they just don’t make em like they used to. This album will truly change their mind.
