Diyet & The Love Soldiers is alternative country, folk, roots and traditional with catchy melodies and stories deeply rooted in Diyet’s Indigenous world view and northern life. Backed by Love Soldiers: husband and collaborator, Robert van Lieshout and Juno Award winning producer, Bob Hamilton; this multi-instrumental trio from the Yukon has a sound that can fill a big stage or capture an intimate room.
Diyet was born in a tent and spent her childhood “in the bush” or rather was brought up on the ancestral lands of her people in Canada’s Yukon Territory. Coming from a family rooted in traditions but tempered with a good sense of adventurous hippie attitudes, Diyet has created a musical presence that is as diverse as her Southern Tutchone, Tlingit, Japanese and Scottish heritage. Continuing to live with feet firmly planted in two worlds, Diyet’s adventurous and sometimes chaotic life is on full display in her music. She often says, “yesterday, fishing for our dinner on the ice, the next day, on the stage singing for you!”
Diyet tours nationally in Canada and internationally in Europe. Performance highlights include major folk, jazz, and multi-disciplinary festivals in Canada, the National Arts Centre in Ottawa, and Mundial Montreal.
Vulnerable, true to life songs. “Vancouver Sun”
Diyet’s enticing vocals will pull you into the songs while the lyrics tell you a story…The entire album is great, and has a unique sound…you should definitely check out this album. “Canadian Beats”
