Overview

Diane Birch's much-lauded debut record hits stores across the country today. Written entirely by Diane and expertly produced by Grammy winners Steve Greenberg, soul legend Betty Wright and Michael Mangini - working together as a team for the first time since the first two critically acclaimed Joss Stone albums - '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.

Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone - Will Hermes
Her welterweight voice is strong and fetching, and with help from Joss Stone's producers and top-shelf players, she nails some vintage sounds.1/2
