We are very happy to invite Diane back for another intimate show of her rad folk infused strange shanty vibes (is that even a real sentence?) This time with support from The Rose Hill’s own Avant- pop looping pioneer Bunty
As a special treat both artists will perform a cover of one of eachother’s songs. There may even be a possible collab on the night - lets see!
Diane Cluck is a singer-songwriter of intuitive folk who employs 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 by NPR as “an unlikely mix of Aaron Neville, the Baka people, and Joni Mitchell--unaffected yet unusual”.
She accompanies herself on various instruments including guitar, piano, harmonium, zither, and a copper pipe instrument she built by hand. Time Out New York cited her as a “one of the most refined and elegant songwriters in all of neo-folkdom...a brilliant idiosyncratic guitarist”.
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. In 2017 Grizzly Bear released their cover of Diane's song "Easy to Be Around".
Bunty is Multi- dimensional artist Kassia Zermon, a unique force best known for pioneering underground experimental vocal loop shows and fronting UK leading Dub act Resonators. Bunty's distinctive voice has been championed by likes of Rodigan, Mark Lamar and BBC 6 taste makers Tom Robinson and Lauren Laverne. Hard to fit into any box this lady's influences are huge, bringing her Morrocan Londoner roots to create her own blend of raw avant – pop music. Bunty's powerful avant- pop orchestra has been compared to FKA Twiggs and Tune-Yards. Combining the rawness of early M.I.A with the lyrical espionage of Tom Waits and a voice that can sound as sweet as Ella Fitzgerald (on Acid). ‘Great Voice' BBC radio 6 Tom Robinson
