"A relative newcomer to the scene is appearing at the VMF: Clever Girls, led by country-folk songwriter Diane Jean. I've yet to see the trio live, but, based on YouTube clips, I'll confirm Jean's statement in a recent email to Seven Days that they "rule." It's raw, rootsy, rambunctious stuff. But I'm really taken by this declaration: "They can all shotgun beer faster than anybody in Chittenden County. Yes, that's a challenge." I don't know about you, but my money might still be on the swing band. Those dudes can get down. But I'm intrigued." - Seven Days


Still working on that hot first release.



At night, perhaps after Diane Jean has finished digging through dead people’s stuff, you may find them writing. Between running a vintage store and pressing records at a local Record Plant, Diane founded Clever Girls- a quartet formed in the drunken masses of Burlington, Vermont that creates sorrowful, confused rock.
Diane Jean’s quirky outlook buoys the band’s writing, while Rob Slater, Tobias Sullivan and Winfield Holt deftly create everything from diverse percussive palettes to guitar infectious melodies. Together, the group creates hardhitting and masterful tunes, never slipping into diaristic monotony.   Above all, Clever Girls as a group will elicit the same emotion and nostalgia that Diane Jean seeks to find in their day job; the music will live somewhere between straight forward rock and roll of bygone eras and dusty, moth eaten grunge pop.
