“this is my favorite singer-songwriter in all of nyc. i’m so happy to be alive at the same time she is because i get to see her perform. it’s her and guitar or her and piano or her and harmonium. her lyrics are so good, when i play this for people they stop doing everything and are quiet for hours after.”

in another world, deep inside of a dark room with good acoustics and glowing candlelight, diane cluck is alone with her guitar.

close yr eyes.

diane’s lyrics and overall repetition of pure words to tones of different phrases touches my heart. the way she presents herself is different: she does not seek to promote or sell her music, her hope is that only a select few will somehow find her, listen and.. understand. and i do.

listen to ~*~ the turnaround road, im yr here-i-am

the weeks have been hazy
but something is changing

About The Author

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter
