Diemm plays original Chamber Folk music with lyrics that tugs at the layers between conscious and subconscious mind.

"Diemm has the incredible ability to discuss heavy, sad, or even complicated topics in a manner that makes them sound light," ~ Alana Ballantyne, Two Story Melody.

Oliver Swain has as been a celebrated musician for years, held in high regard in acoustic and folk music styles for both his astonishing instrumental and vocal abilities, though he seldom gives the genre a fully traditional treatment. Oliver Swain strays towards the whimsical, the spiritual, and the socially conscious side of what he likes to refer to as "chamber folk odyssey", and it's these beguiling and provocative elements that make him unique as an artist and songwriter.

"The Zen Rock Garden of old-time music." ~ Devon Leger.
