New album ‘Deep Heart’
Most of my radio and streaming airplay for the new album and last has been in the U.K. and Germany. It is being received very well. Where are my U.S. Radio supporters? Aren’t you guys cool enough?
Deep Heart was released July 6, 2018.
The seventh release from Diane Marie Kloba is Deep Heart. In some ways, Deep Heart departs from Diane’s recent earlier work: There was no overarching concept to the album. The lyrical subject matter takes a step away from her previous work: She introduces some enigmatic new characters and situations, and mostly avoids the subject of art itself and its creation.
While some arrangements are more stripped down with a hint of folk-blues, the title track is lush with synthesizers and layered guitar. It is Diane’s first time working with a new mix engineer, Andrew Diaz.
Also included are remastered versions of the Soundcloud hit “Thunder” (featuring Westfront), and “He Lights Up”, previously available only on the Vanguardista Records Winter Solstice compilation.

2017 Recap and 2018 Preview
I will be releasing a new album titled Deep Heart in early 2018!
Here’s a recap of my activities in 2017:
I created another exclusive session in January for Mark Whitby at Dandelion Radio. Two songs from the session have been completely reworked, and the new versions will appear on the new album. The session is now available as a name-your-price download on bandcamp here:
Marked Map: A Dandelion Radio Session.
I continue to get my best support from radio outside the US: In the UK, Germany and Canada. I prefer listening to these overseas stations because they play more varied genres and new music. They’re more interesting than most US stations.
I continue to collaborate with Paul Kent of Brighton, England on our project Kloba Kent. Our song “Fools Make Walls” even made it into Dandelion Radio’s Festive 50 at number 28, making my third appearance in this listener poll! You can get both Kloba Kent EPs on bandcamp here:
