Born in a tent, raised in a two-room cabin, classically trained in opera, and now an alternative folk artist…but the cool doesn’t stop there…she is a sub-Arctic-Southern Tutchone-Japanese-Tlingit-Scottish-Yukoner. Diyet’s music is like her life – a mix of this and that but deeply rooted in the values of a traditional Northern life.
Her career began with a music degree in Vancouver – she then returned to her hometown of Burwash Landing determined to chart her own musical course. Her debut album, The Breaking Point, received nominations for “Best New Artist” and “Songwriter of the Year” at the Aboriginal People’s Choice Music Awards in 2010 and 2011 and “Album of the Year” at the Canadian Aboriginal Music Awards. Published in Japan, Canada and Europe, Diyet engages her worldly audience in an intimate, uplifting experience as she invites them into a soundscape of rhythm, melody and storytelling.
Diyet’s adventurous and sometimes chaotic life is on full display in her music and she often says, “yesterday, fishing for our dinner on the ice, the next day, on the stage singing for you.” Original, innovative, authentic and heartfelt – Prismatic is proud to present Diyet.
