Diane Cluck

with Snaex and Plains

Diane Cluck is a singer-songwriter of intuitive folk music. Her vocal style has been noted for its distinctly clipped, glottal beauty, described as “an unlikely mix of Aaron Neville, the Baka people, and Joni Mitchell…unaffected yet unusual." Diane contributed to New York’s burgeoning Antifolk scene in the early 2000s alongside artists such as Jeffrey Lewis, Adam Green, and Kimya Dawson. She’s traded harmonies and toured with CocoRosie and shared stages with a wonderful diversity of artists including The National, Regina Spektor, Yoko Ono, John Zorn, My Brightest Diamond, Devendra Banhart, Josephine Foster, Cass McCombs, and Daniel Johnston. Musicians such as Laura Marling, Florence Welch (of Florence + The Machine), and Sharon Van Etten have all cited Diane’s work as influential.

Joining her are local stalwarts of left-field folk-music Snaex and Plains

“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.” -Antony Hegarty (of Antony & The Johnsons and ANONHI)

“When Diane sings, I am lost in a realm of infinite possibilities. She breaks me down, she gives me chills, she makes me cry–this is when I love music. “ -Bianca Casady (of CocoRosie)

“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)
