Review – Diyet

By: Amanda Hather

Album – When You Were King
iTunes Link –
Release Date – July 15th, 2013
Genre – Alternative Folk

Diyet is a singer/songwriter from Burwash Landing, Yukon. Her second album ‘When You Were King’ is a ten track recording including both fast and slow paced acoustic and folk sounding songs. Even if you aren’t a fan of the genre of folk music, Diyet’s enticing vocals will still pull you into the songs while the lyrics tell you a story.

My personal favourite off of the album has to be “What I Want”, followed by “Angry People” and “White Flag”. The entire album is great, and has a unique sound. Whether it’s a genre you actively listen to or not, if you like good music you should definitely check out this album.

Rating: 4/5

I’m a Toronto girl born and raised but have been living in Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick since 2010. Music and writing are my two passions, so what better place for me to be than a writer with Canadian Beats? I have been writing for the blog since May of 2013 and have had so many great experiences because of it. I listen to almost every kind of music but my favourites are pop rock, rock, indie, folk, and any other combinations of them. Concerts are definitely my favourite place to be, especially when you’re right against the barricade and can feel the energy from the band and the crowd, everyone singing the same lyrics and moving to the music. I also have a college degree in Business Administration and hope to one day be able to publish a novel.
