Critical Praise for Bible Belt:


“Move over, Amy, Adele, and Duffy: The British blue-eyed soul brigade gets some serious competition from this Yankee on her debut.” – People Magazine “Critic’s Choice”


“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


 “…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


"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".  - The New York Post


"....That exceptional list includes Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Norah Jones and, now, the young bohemian Diane Birch.... her astonishing debut is full of musical wanderlust..... Birch nails the easygoing soul of seventies classics: Carole King ’s Tapestry, perhaps, or Joni’s Blue.....give Bible Belt your attention. Because the only word that counts here is beyond the consideration of trends. That word is “TIMELESS"." - Modern Tonic


“I’ve just heard the future of singer-songwriters and her name is Diane Birch…Birch has delivered an album with strong echoes of Laura Nyro and Carole King but with songs that… retain that thrilling shock of the new...Bible Belt is more than welcoming -- it's downright thrilling” – The Huffington Post


“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.” – The New York Post (Pop Wrap)
