diane cluck is one of those magicians=musicians that goes straight to my soul. every time she creates something, im instantly drawn to it. the quietness reminds me of being left alone and silent in an empty church, the way she so elegantly stands there and sings with her guitar. its as if yr naturally always wondering why yr where you are but this time it feels like home. devendra, antony, nomi, cocorosie and my brightest diamond understand how i feel. as they too believe so much class comes from this woman’s music. at a time when our world seems anything but im always searching for those that may have some type of different hope.
diane cluck recently handwrapped her new album monarcana in brown paper and sent it to me. as with anything she has ever made, im beyond inspired and truly thankful for what she shares.
