Diane Birch has been selected as this week’s featured Music Monday post based entirely on this creative music video.

Diane has a very interesting journey, traveling as a missionary’s kid through Zimbabwe, South Africa, and Australia with her father, a Seventh Day Adventist preacher.  She grew up never listening to pop music, as her parents did not allow her listen to any secular music, but left home when she was old enough and headed for L.A. Even though it seems that 99% of people who leave home for a big music city fall flat on their face, Diane Birch has received critical acclaim from the Huffington Post, NPR (you can stream her live performance at a favorite venue of mine: The World Cafe in Philly), and Rolling Stone Paper Magazine.  Diane’s release of her album, Bible Belt, also landed her on Conan and Craig Ferguson, and her quirky pop is gaining a substantial fan base.  You can find out more about Birch here or head to her website to hear more of her music.

What do you think of the video? Were you as happy as me when you found out this wasn’t just a big video-editing project, but was actually coordinated like a complex dance piece?

Hat tip to my friend Steve for finding this.
