About Diamonds Under Fire
West Hollywood, CA
Rock outfit Diamonds Under Fire is the musical heart of singer/songwriter Vanessa Silberman.
Taking major influences from 90's alternative groups, Diamonds Under Fire leads the way from where the few female fronted rock groups left off. Her surefire performance is akin to the confidence & spirit of Chrissie Hynde, the rawness of PJ Harvey, the bare bones rock 'n roll of Nirvana & the pop production sensibilities of Pink. Songs such as the anxious bitter sweetness of "Binge Thinking" & "Reverie" showcase Vanessa with a heavy heart. Like Dashboard Confessional, she does it without wearing it on her sleeve while adding a hearty dose of enthusiasm and the intensity of her heroes in Silverchair.
