Diemm: Crystalline vocals. Lyrics like arrows. Ethereal folk harp. Diemm plays original Chamber Folk music, with poetry that tugs at the layers between conscious and subconscious mind.
Diemm plays folk harp and sings. She plays for that one note, that one resonant chord that opens a cascade of ‘yes’ inside you. Her harp strings weave dense landscapes of rhythm and melody. Her voice is a bell, ringing you home.
Diemm’s debut album ‘Ten Thousand Miracles’ launched September 2018. This album is a tapestry of harp, double bass, and percussion, with the kind of vocal harmonies that give chills - and some genre-bending spoken word poetry, too. Her genre is Chamber Folk. The artist she's most compared to is Joni Mitchell, the poet she's most compared to is Rumi.

Diemm’s concerts blur the line between performance and transformational offering. As a workshop leader and as a performer, Diemm holds hands with the Muse and bows to the power of music to align and illuminate. You’ll leave lighter, clearer, and more inspired than when you walked in, as though you’ve sprouted wings.
