Diane Birch Previews Sophomore LP with 'All the Love You Got'

In anticipation of her sophomore LP, Speak a Little Louder (S-Curve Records), singer/songwriter Diane Birch is offering the album's lead single, “All the Love You Got,” as a free download.

The new music comes four years after her critically-lauded debut, Bible Belt (which featured the retro-flavored “Nothing But a Miracle”), an album as striking for Birch’s songcraft as for her distinctively soulful phrasing and the naked, wrenching vulnerability with which she often imbued those performances. 

Birch delivers the scorned-lover-be-damned narrative of “All the Love You Got” with vengeance enough to suggest perhaps some gutsier, rougher edges surround Speak a Little Louder, which is scheduled for release on October 15.
