Diane Cluck with Mehetable (album release) and Greg Jamie
DIANE CLUCK is a singer-songwriter of intuitive folk music. She tours the US, UK and Europe, employing singing as a healing, textural experience in which audiences may wander, ponder, or simply be. Her vocal style has been noted for its clipped, glottal beauty, and described by NPR as an unlikely mix of Aaron Neville, the Baka people, and Joni Mitchellunaffected yet unusual. She accompanies herself on various instruments including guitar, piano, harmonium, zither, and a copper pipe instrument she built by hand. With an unusual finger-picking style producing harp-like tones, Time Out New York cited her as a brilliant idiosyncratic guitarist.
Diane contributed to New Yorks burgeoning Antifolk scene in the early 2000s. Since then, singer-songwriters Laura Marling, Florence Welch (of Florence And The Machine), and Sharon Van Etten have cited Dianes work as influential.
Diane released her seventh album, Boneset, through Important Records in 2014. A new album, Common Wealth, is in the works for 2019.
Since 2017 Diane has been leading singing and songwriting workshops across the US, UK and Canada. At home in Virginia, Diane teaches at The Front Porch, Charlottesvilles roots music school, and was Songwriting Instructor for the University of Virginias Young Writers Workshop in 2018.
