Diane Cluck (photo: David Garland)

Refreshing, startling, and also engaging, Diane Cluck is an artist willing to explore the frontiers of song, and occasionally report back to us what she discovers there. Diane uses the usual songwriter tools of words and music, and voice and guitar, but somehow her songs are very unusual. They manage to inspire new ideas and perceptions, with unique perspectives providing revealing insights. She first visited Spinning On Air in 2004, and now Diane Cluck returns to perform some new songs with drummer Anders Griffen and vocalist Abbey Todras, and to talk about the songs with host David Garland.

Diane Cluck and her music are uniquely interesting and unusual. (Scramble around the words Unique, Interesting and Unusual and you will get my gist.) Her songs move me AND settle me down. A few years ago she came to Saratoga Springs, NY and performed at “Better Than Toast”, a not for profit used clothing and music store to benefit local charities. (Sadly, the store is no longer around.) I tumbled into Diane’s dreams from the very first song she sang that day.
