Singer-songwriter Diane Cluck plays an original brand of “intuitive folk” that joins the free expression of anti-folk with an elegant yet unaffected melodic base. Born out of various cafés of the Lower East Side in 2000, Cluck has been religiously strumming out her darkly arresting songs ever since, even beginning a fan-funded “song of the week” project sending new songs straight to subscribers. With distinctive, almost harp-like guitar work and melodies sung in a broken coo, Cluck is Joni Mitchell meets Joanna Newsom meets a new spellbinding beast altogether.
