The Breaking Point - 2010
When You Were King - 2013



Born in a tent, raised in a two room cabin, classically trained in opera, now an alternative folk artist. This sub-Arctic-Southern Tutchone-Japanese-Tlingit-Scottish-Yukoner is your typical Canadian – the result of a long cold winter. Diyet’s music is like her life – a mix of this and that but deeply rooted in the values of a traditional northern life.
From humble beginnings, Diyet went on to acquire a degree in music then worked as a songwriter in Vancouver. Her songs are published in Japan, Canada and Europe. In 2010, she left the big city and returned to her hometown of Burwash Landing with the determination to chart her own musical course. Her debut album, The Breaking Point, went on to receive nominations for “Best New Artist” and “Songwriter of the Year” at the Aboriginal People’s Choice Music Awards in 2010 and 2011, “Album of the Year” at the Canadian Aboriginal Music Awards and remained on the Canadian Aboriginal Music Countdown for 24 weeks.
When You Were King, Diyet’s sophomore album released in July 2013, is lyrically daring and instrumentally inspiring with a diversity and boldness that makes the listener wonder where they may be off to next. Introspective sonic layers work hand in hand with the lyric, creating an emotional tension that at times holds up a mirror and at other times sparks a memory. When You Were King has message and meaning juxtaposed with a bit of cheek.
In concert, Diyet engages audiences in an intimate and uplifting experience as she invites them into a soundscape of rhythm, melody and storytelling. With a resonant voice that conveys emotion and passion, Diyet is a contemporary artist whose music leaves listeners with a sense of hope and possibility. Her lyrics paint a vivid picture of her surroundings and the happy and heartbreaking things that happen in her world.
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” – how awesome is that?
