“Diane Cluck seems like more of a force of nature than a mere singer/songwriter.
She is the rare archetypal artist (without ironic quotes)
though whom something pure and true flows.”
“An unlikely mix of Aaron Neville, the Baka people, and Joni Mitchell,
Cluck’s singing is unaffected yet unusual.”
“Bell-clear and hotly austere, her lithe, dynamic voice hasn’t much kin.
Categorizing her as folk is simplistic…(Cluck) emanates something humble but mythic.
Appalachia or ancient Athens? Both hum and lilt in the unpretentious drama of her airy songs.”
-Time Out New York
“Watching Cluck perform jams the senses.
It’s almost easier to imagine some tiny spirit in her chest is controlling the action,
turning a pitch wheel with one hand and a tone knob with the other.”
-NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert
“She is likely one of the most refined and elegant songwriters in all of neo-folkdom.
A brilliant idiosyncratic guitarist, a witty and wise lyricist, an imaginative melody writer with a powerful voice; her dark and introspective tunes are utterly captivating.
Watch her spellbind the room.”
“Diane demonstrates just how little she needs to put the world on hold: just a voice, a guitar
and some of the most spell-binding words you’ll hear anywhere”
“There was something so uncommonly arresting about Cluck’s ornate,
classically-inspired melodies and the way she coaxed out her stark and poignant balladry
with a peculiar and uniquely clipped glottal beauty. Free of cliché, free of clutter,
it delivered the kind of emotional payoff that was totally unputdownable.”
