Win 'Bible Belt' from Diane Birch!
'Bible Belt' is Diane Birch's first recorded offering, but it's one of the most accomplished albums you're likely to hear all year. From the opening track "Fire Escape" to the closing "Magic View," Diane's stunning voice - sometimes bursting with buoyant spirit, sometimes plaintive and world-wearied - is rich, soulful and beguiling.
Written entirely by Diane and expertly produced by Grammy winners Steve Greenberg, soul legend Betty Wright and Michael Mangini, Bible Belt was recorded in New York and New Orleans with an impressive group of accomplished musicians, all of whom were so dazzled by Diane's songwriting that they agreed to come together as her band for the recording: Lenny Kaye (of The Patti Smith Group), Adam Blackstone from The Roots, George Porter of The Meters, acclaimed drummers Stanton Moore of Galactic and Cindy Blackman, saxophonist Lenny Pickett, and trombonist Tom "Bones" Malone.
And while Diane sings most of the album's background vocals herself, both Betty Wright and legendary Jive Five lead singer Eugene Pitt join in on occasion to lend their vocal magic. Diane and her band will perform at 9.30 pm on Monday June 29th at Joe's Pub in New York. A national tour will follow.
So, if you would like to win one of these new CDs, and you think you know all there is to know about the lady herself, just answer this easy question: As part of the release week campaign, Diane Birch's label have pioneered an innovative new online program, whereby if you purchase the album for only $6.99 via a custom widget that has been specially designed for websites and blogs, $1 will be donated by S-Curve to one of six different charities in the name of the person who posted the widget. So, what is the name of this online program?!
