Diane Birch grew up as the daughter of a Seventh Day Adventist preacher. That might explain some of the gospel inflections in her music, but the 27-year-old suspects that the innocence expressed in her lyrics is more a product of feeling out of sync with the 21st century. "I always felt very nostalgic [as a child]," Birch told the Guardian. "I used to be convinced I was from the 18th century." This track, "Rewind," from her debut record, harkens back to 70s singer-songwriters like Laura Nyro and Joni Mitchell.
