Diyet & The Love Soldiers
THE HOUSE SERIES
Born in a tent, raised in a cabin on the shores of a glacial lake in the Kluane region of Canada’s Yukon Territory, Diyet embodies her Southern Tutchone, Japanese, Tlingit, and Scottish roots with a musical presence that is equally diverse and unique. Diyet & The Love Soldiers, with husband and collaborator, Robert van Lieshout on guitar and foot percussion and multi- instrumentalist, Bob Hamilton, is Alternative Folk, Roots, Country, and Traditional Aboriginal with melodies and stories deeply rooted in Diyet’s Indigenous world view and northern life. Her songs are an interpretation of a northern reality: hard, raw and will break you if it can but at the same time, always beautiful, gentle, strange, and intensely alive.
