Discover & Donate with Diane Birch

10:30 AM

For singer-songwriter Diane Birch, music was a refuge. Although Diane was born in Michigan, her childhood was spent on the move as the daughter of a preacher, living between Zimbabwe, South Africa and Australia, before her parents finally settled in Portland, Oregon. When she was in her early teens, Diane absorbed a unique and cosmopolitan perspective on life that shines through her music and makes a simple categorization of it impossible

The result? Diane Birch sounds like an old favorite, with all the sparkle and magic of a breakthrough talent. People says she sounds like a combination of early Carole King, Linda Ronstadt and Stevie Nicks, with a little Joss Stone and Cat Power mixed in. Bible Belt is only her first record, but it’s one of the most accomplished albums you’ll hear all year. From the opening track “Fire Escape” to the closing “Magic View,” Diane’s stunning voice is mesmerizing.

Written entirely by Diane, Bible Belt was recorded in New York City and New Orleans with an impressive team of Grammy-winning producers: S-Curve Records founder Steve Greenberg, soul legend Betty Wright and Mike Mangini, in their first project together since producing Joss Stone’s first albums.

Her eyes alone tell a story. Well, at least what kind of mascara she uses (it's Chanel BTW).

Diane Birch released her debut album yesterday (6/2) titled "Bible Belt". Reaching the Top 10 albums on iTunes only added to the excitement of her new release.

Her voice has an ageless quality, well beyond her years. It is the type of music that knows no boundaries. Something for everyone. One of my favorites (and I have many), is the song 'Fire Escape'. Take a listen by visiting this link: Sultry, I know!

While Diane's album is heating up the charts, she has not lost touch with important causes of the world. In a campaign simply titled, Discover & Donate, Diane is finding away to use her talent to give-back to several charities. It's as simple as posting a widget to your blog, social networking page, or website. Visit the official Discover & Donate page for more details.

I have decided to support the Keep A Child Alive charity. Here is their banner:

There are a total of 6 charities to choose from. They are Autism Speaks, March of Dimes, Keep A Child Alive, Share Our Strength, SOS Children’s Villages and Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

If you purchase the new album "Bible Belt" from Diane Birch, a donation of $1 will go to the charity I have chosen above. The album must be purchased through iTunes or Amazon.

What are you waiting for?! Go buy the album now. Tell your friends to tell their friends. Help a great cause while listening to great music.

If you think all of the giving is great, wait until you hear about the great Sitewarming Party hosted by Resourceful Mommy this Friday, 6/5 at 9 PM. There are tons of cool prizes being handed out. You could win an iPod Nano or shuffle. There are even several iTunes gift cards to hand out. Remember to visit the Discover & Donate campaign for more details on how you can make a difference.
