Diana DeMuth

Misadventure

Review by Gary Hill

This album captures an artist really doing a great job plying her craft. Her music is of the singer-songwriter variety. She's not breaking any molds. Her music seems to fit well into a certain school of female singers, but she's crafting her songs well enough and performing them with such skill that she really manages to stand tall in the field of similar artists.

This review is available in book (paperback and hardcover) form in Music Street Journal: 2021  Volume 6. More information and purchase links can be found at: garyhillauthor.com/Music-Street-Journal-2021.

Track by Track Review
Hotel Song
A piano and vocal approach is on the menu at the start of this cut. The track works out from there into a more powered up arrangement. This is meaty, catchy and quite tasty.
Into My Arms
This earns a bit of a parental advisory. It's an energetic and catchy number. This has a real classic angle to it.
Rose Of Nantucket
I dig the fighting vibe of the rocking vocals on this. The cut gets another advisory for the lyrics. This has a great balance between mellower and more rocking textures. The hooks are among the best here. This is a particularly strong tune that's a highlight of the set.
The Young & The Blind
Another with a bit of a parental warning, this is energetic, catchy and so cool.
Steady Rolling
A song that's strictly piano and vocal, this has some real fire and emotion in the mix. It's a classy cut.
Signs
This is another powerful rocker. It's a great entry on the disc.
Photographs
Largely built on piano and vocals, strings add some magic to the song. It's a great tune.
All The Liars
This starts with piano and voice, as well. The cut grows outward from there as another intriguing tune. It's not quite a rocker, but it's definitely not a ballad.
In Ivory White
Another piano and vocal based tune, this really has a lot of emotion packed into it.
Already Gone
I dig the bass work on this potent piece of music. It has a bluesy, painful sort of vibe to it.
