+ Miranda Arieh
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 as “an unlikely mix of Aaron Neville, the Baka people, and Joni Mitchell…unaffected yet unusual”. (NPR)
Diane 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.
“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?” -Time Out New York
“I grew up on 60s music, but my first contemporary music love was Diane Cluck.” -Laura Marling
“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.” -Village Voice, NYC
“She takes the voice to the brink of a new and beautiful language.” -Chris Taylor (of Grizzly Bear)
Singer songwriter Miranda hails from Leeds, She has so far released 4 singles & music videos, receiving 2 Leeds Music Video Awards for their 'unique' content.
Miranda was awarded 'Social Impact Star' at the Inspiring Women Changemakers Awards for the mental health campaigning she has done alongside & through her music.
