TORC 7: “Jumping into Rivers” – Diana Vickers

Track on Repeat Craze #7: Diana Vickers – Jumping Into Rivers / Songs From a Tainted Cherry Tree album.

All right. I must say that I was sort of disappointed to hear that Cheryl Cole was kicked off The X Factor (USA version) after just a short stint. I totally stopped channel surfing over to the show. And… yeah, I’ll admit that after I heard her accent, I totally YouTubed some lessons to try and mimic it – I’ll tell you straight out, I ain’t got it. Was her Geordie accent really the reason Cheryl Cole got canned? That would just be utterly lame.

Well, anyway… from the days that Cheryl judged on the original X Factor, Diana Vickers emerged as a semi-finalist. I. Love. Her. Voice. She has this unique… whisper, almost, that’s so soothing and comforting yet works in up-beat poppy mixes just perfectly.

Since she hasn’t really conquered the US market, I couldn’t find the MP3s for the widget. However, check out my (current) favorite track from her debut album – thanks to the DianaVickersSings YouTube channel.

And here is another favorite that will be on her upcoming album (sometime this year… hopefully sooner rather than later):

Head over to Diana Vickers’ SoundCloud for more great tracks. Forewarning – she posts all sorts of social media bits. Translation: there’s more than just song tracks on her SoundCloud. But it’s cool. Why not, yeah?
