“Many Facets of International Style for Aussie Songstress”.
After singing on Delicate from Amanaska’s latest album Escape, Diana May Clark has unleashed a singularly undefinable album in terms of genre. With influences of rock, country, latin and world music all wrapped up in a pop style package this is an album that will appeal to the masses. Produced by Greg Arnold (now based internationally) from Things of Stone and Wood and virtuoso guitar by Diana May’s husband and collaborator Doug de Vries, this songstress winds her way through an internationally flavoured album including tracks titled Mama Africa, Vanilla vs. Barcelona, Batucada Bonde and Tango Noir. With a strong sense of self, a voice that is as adaptable as it is powerful and a passion that exudes from her very soul, the album smacks of a writer and musician that is invested in the core of the music. Diana and Doug travel to Brazil regularly searching for inspiration and enjoying collaboration, imbibing in the richness of the culture and transporting it back into stage shows performed across the world
Making a successful jump from interpreting Brazilian songs to pop in 2013 with her first single release Sunny Daze, achieving 6th place in the Australian Songwriters Association Awards and Top 5 at the 2013 Independent Music Awards, Clark had a string of single releases followed before blending into the new album. In 15 years she’s released 6 albums, 1 EP and 3 singles with more on the way.
With the voice of a siren, global musicianship and angelic composition The Other Side Of the Girl by Diana May Clarke is a whole new world of sound.
