“Dielle moves between the melancholy and the uplifting with ease due to her remarkable abilities as a vocalist and songwriter” Eve Williams
Having been singing from the age of 8 and songwriting from the age of 14, DiElle from the south coast now performs in a variety of line ups, enjoying sharing her emotionally honest material. Having raised over £3000 for charity with the 2009 tour “Beautiful Monday”, DiElle are now recording a new acoustic album “Fearless”, introducing more blues and jazz flavours to their easy acoustic style. As well as the usual subjects of love and loss, DiElle writes across a range of human experience, from having children in “Shelter From The Storm” to domestic abuse in “I Won’t Get In Your Way”. “Shelter From The Storm” has now been played and performed at Christening and Baby Naming Ceremonies in Asia, Australia,USA, and the Netherlands, as well as the UK; “I wrote this song for my own goddaughter and performed it for the first time at her Christening – I am so thrilled that peopl
e from all over the globe can relate to this song and use it in their own celebrations. When I wrote it, I wasn’t thinking about anyone or anything other than my god child and her parents, and the wonderful journey I was witness to, but as it turns out, this has been one of my post popular tracks, as so many parents and families around the globe relate to how I was feeling at the time” “Shelter From The Storm“ is on the acoustic album, Beautiful Monday.
In 2012, Dielle has enjoyed the opportunity to perform her favourite album of all time ‘Tapestry’ by Carole King, including some incredible titles such as ‘You’ve Got A Friend’, ‘Will You Love Me Tomorrow’ and ‘Natural Woman’. “Carole King is just an amazing songwriter. When we perform these songs I can see from the stage how much this music has touched people’s lives. This album was a huge inspiration to me to start songwriting in the first place. It is a total priviledge to perform this music, and share it with other Carole King lovers, of which there are many.” Tracks from this project are now regularly performed as part of DiElle’s live shows, along with other great songs that have influenced her writing. “I am inspired by things in the world that speak to me. Several of the songs I have written that people tell me they love have been about real people in my life. I wrote ‘Twinkle’ when I lost my grandfather. He was always so positive and upbeat, I didn’t want his memory to be reduced to his last weeks in hospital and the pain of losing him so suddenly. I wroteand recorded it in the week before the funeral – the hardest studio time I have ever experienced – so we could play it at the service. Ithas been an honour to hear that others who have lost love ones find comfort in the song.Twinkle is available here
