DiElle is a singer-songwriter hailing from the idyllic village setting of Wickham on the South Coast of England. A quiet town it may be but it is home to one of the most exciting new songwriters with a knack for hard hitting, brutally honest lyrics, an ear for soaring melody and a voice that could bring a tear to the eye of even the most stone hearted souls.
DiElle had a strong interest in music from a young age, both her parents were musical, creative people and their family home was always brimming with excellent music. Her family had a very significant impact on her musical career whether that be her Dad thrusting a guitar into her hands at the age of 3, or the influence that the records in her parent’s collection still have on her. Despite very early signs of creativity, writing several stories and poems (including one tear jerking poetic rabbit eulogy) and signs of vocal talent from age 8, it wasn’t until her teens that DiElle began her venture into the realms of songwriting.
Beautiful Monday, DiElle’s first acoustic album, has previously been described as ‘more than an album it’s a new best friend’ and with its personal yet relatable lyrics, Beautiful Monday really sounds like the person that knows you better than anyone else, thus providing the listener with a sense of comfort which seems to be lacking from so many of today’s artists. Echoes of Joni Mitchell’s Blue and Carole King’s Tapestry run throughout the album while the warm, homely sounds of acoustic guitar and piano provide a very organic backdrop to this otherworldly voice.
DiElle is also no stranger to performance either and being described as ‘absolutely fascinating to watch’ certainly reinforces this. Shortly after releasing Beautiful Monday, DiElle went on a tour of the UK and Ireland in support of the album and raised £3000 for charity.
In 2014 DiElle is has released her follow up to Beautiful Monday with a new album titled ‘Fearless’. It’s clear to see that DiElle expanded on her earlier work in the track ‘No One to Thank or Blame’ which has an entirely different sonic landscape with its spacious vocals and subtle yet driving bass part both of which adding haunting qualities to the sound and exemplifying DiElle’s diversity. This album has a much more mature sound and DiElle and is an album of much collaboration, having worked with colleagues from around the world including Pete Hartley whose beautiful strings can be heard on the title track and give the song a certain depth and beautiful clarity. It’s not all new however, as the heart felt, personal lyrics still remain, ‘Nearby’ being a song written in her teens after a personal tragedy occurred in DiElle’s life.
With an excellent first acoustic album under her belt, the exciting, second album release ‘Fearless’ was launched in 2014 to a great response. Receiving much radio play across the world, DiElle’s popularity in the USA has increased, which has lead to a current collaboration with both tour and film companies. In 2015, with new London based producer, DiElle released singles ‘The Nesting Song’ and a new recording of ‘Shelter From The Storm’, first featured on Beautiful Monday. These tracks both received global radio play on the day of release, and have been popular in Australia, Europe the USA and of course the UK. 2015 also saw the release Currently, DiElle is enjoying overseas gigs and guest showcase spots and focusing on composing songs and music for an original film score.
