Song for a Sunday

This week's Sunday Song is 'Rewind' by Diane Birch - a lovely, bluesy sort of song.  I love her voice, but haven't got anything else by her... must investigate more.

  1. Have you ever seen the video for 'Valentino', Simon? Very cleverly done.

  3. Did you like this one because a bookshop makes an appearance, albeit brief, in the video?

    You can hear DB's song 'Fools' for free at 5 mins 20 from the start of the latest 'Cafe UK Radio Show', a programme that is a cross between an easy/MOR music show and a copy of 'The Week' magazine:

    1. I hadn't seen the video before, actually David, so I was not biased ;)

  4. Diane has a new album scheduled for release this summer. I, of course, think it's going to be dynamite. Her sultry emotion-soaked voice is very contemporary but evinces the history of blues, soul and folk. She's been favorably compared to Aretha Franklin, Laura Nyro and Carole King among others. So do check out more of her music including the digital EP giving tribute to some of the musicians who influenced her teen years, "The Velveteen Age." Also check the fan site for links to more of her music and photos. http://madaboutdiane.tumblr.com/
