Comments: This was the opening night of the 4 date for Piano Trees tour.  We were very lucky to have Char choose Philadelphia as one of the stops.

  If there were such a thing as Angels then Charlotte Martin would have to be one of them with her very long blonde hair, bright eyes and beautiful voice.  Charlotte has one of the most beautiful voices I have ever heard.  Really you must go check out her site right now and give her a listen

  Shooting her was very difficult since the grand piano by Steinway and Sons is hard to shoot around let alone it was a seated show so you can only shoot from the sides.

Comments: The band enters the stage then out comes Diane Birch and you see how beautiful she looks. Then she greets the audience and you can hear the charm in her voice.

Now, iTunes has Diane's album Bible Belt listed under Pop music. First you may think, she's as adorable as a Pop Star, but this is no teenybopper music ladies and gentleman, Diane Birch has a voice and style that can make you melt. On top of that she writes all of her lyrics and music.

I have been to hundreds of concerts, shows and performances the past 12 years and I am rarely impacted such as what I have just heard from this new artist. After hearing Diane's song " Nothing But A Miracle" through my head the following day of photographing her, I had to go and purchase the album. Now, I have the songs "Fools", "Valentino", "Rise Up" and "Photograph" that I keep listening to over again on my iPod.

Diane Birch considers herself and "old soul" and her music which is a mix of soul, blues and classic rock shows the maturity of this young lady.
