DIANE CLUCK is a singer-songwriter of intuitive folk music based in Charlottesville, Virginia. 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 as “an unlikely mix of Aaron Neville, the Baka people, and Joni Mitchell…unaffected yet unusual”. (NPR)

She accompanies herself on various instruments including guitar, piano, harmonium, zither, and a copper pipe instrument she built by hand. Time Out New York cited her as a “brilliant idiosyncratic guitarist”.

Diane released her seventh album Boneset through Important Records, featuring cellist Isabel Castellvi and drummer Anders Griffen. The album and singles received the distinction of premiering through NPR’s First Listen, All Songs Considered and Tiny Desk Concert series.

She contributed to New York’s 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 Diane’s work as influential.

Diane is currently fulfilling her Song-of-the-Week project–a fan-funded subscription run through her website (http://dianecluck.info/sotw-songs) in which she writes, records and delivers new songs to subscribers.

“Diane Cluck is a virtuosic talent with an emotionality that feels at once ancient and alien. Her mastery of her voice as an ecstatic instrument is so compelling.”
Anohni

“I grew up on 60s music, but my first contemporary music love was Diane Cluck.”
Laura Marling

“She made me rethink my singing instincts. Diane is not just an amazing and interesting singer, she’s a philosopher.”
Sharon Van Etten

“She takes the voice to the brink of a new and beautiful language.”
Chris Taylor (of Grizzly Bear)
