Diyet was born in a tent and spent her childhood “in the bush,” or rather was brought up on the ancestral lands of her people in Canada’s Yukon Territory. Coming from a family rooted in traditions but tempered with a good sense of adventurous hippie attitudes, Diyet has created a musical presence that is as diverse as her Southern Tutchone, Tlingit, Japanese, and Scottish heritage.
She got her start singing on the school bus, went on to acquire a degree in music, and then became a published songwriter in Vancouver, B.C. When the pull of the North was too strong, she packed her bags and moved back to her village without a plan or even a pub to play in. The result of this unlikely career move has been international collaborations; touring in Canada and Europe; and three acclaimed albums (The Breaking Point, When You Were King) and 2018’s Diyet & the Love Soldiers.
Continuing to live with feet firmly planted in two worlds, Diyet’s adventurous and sometimes chaotic life is on full display in her music. She often says, “Yesterday, fishing for our dinner on the ice, the next day, on the stage singing for you!”
“Diyet’s enticing vocals will pull you into the songs while the lyrics tell you a story…The entire album is great and has a unique sound…if you like good music you should definitely check out this album.” – Canadian Beats
