CHIRP is happy to welcome Diane Coffee for two nights in June at Schubas!
With People is both new territory for Diane Coffee, as well as a full-circle return to their roots. Shaun Fleming’s fourth album is more intimate and personal than they’ve ever been previously, a collection of diaristic ruminations and contemplative observations of the people in their life that are nonetheless universal in their impact. Combining the breezy wistfulness of classic folk-rock with orchestral pop’s broad sweep, With People marks an exciting new era for Diane Coffee, chronicling an artist’s revisitation of their upbringing as they look at the horizon for what’s ahead.
Fleming’s follow-up to 2019’s exquisite Internet Arms came about in the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic, as their songwriting took an unexpectedly personal turn—zooming in on not only their own emotions and experiences, but the people that have impacted their life. “It was a way for me to see all these people I couldn’t see, and to be with them in the form of song,” Fleming explains—and the transportive nature of this creative process eventually encompassed their own upbringing in the suburbs of Agoura Hills, California, which Fleming returned to before recording to recapture the feelings of their past.
