From the 2009 album, To Be Still. Along with Terry Riley, Diane hails from Nevada City, CA (like her contemporary Joanna Newson). This was her first label release (Rough Trade), produced by her Dad. As Caroline Sullivan points out, “[n]early every song is informed by nature: from the snow that creates “such a stillness, calm as the owl glides” on White As Diamonds to the woodland copse where “wind blows the tiny green helicopter seeds” in The Alder Trees.” She sings of a landlocked woman dreaming of the ocean here. Diane lives in Portland, OR and not surprisingly, she tours with the likes of The Decemberists, Blitzen Trapper, Iron & Wine, Akron/Family, and Vashti Bunyan.
