about

DIANE MARIE KLOBA is a Chicago native, lifelong area resident and recording artist who has released four full-length albums of her work. She has been active in music since the 1990s when she led The Silent Workers, a guitar-powered modern rock quartet who were regulars on the club and festival scene. Since then, her solo work generally resides in the space between singer-songwriter and performance art, drawing from rock, folk, jazz and punk influences, but always distilling these sources to their essences: It has the intelligence of art music without its typical pretension and the uninhibited expression of punk without its usual aggression.

Kloba’s non-musical interests include astronomy, geology, meteorology, philosophy and psychology; these subjects all illuminate her lyrical content, through the lenses of emotion, humor, metaphor and a hopeful worldview. Her frequent wordplay is reminiscent of hip-hop, but without its anger or bravado.

Diane Marie Kloba’s latest effort, I Am an Unknown Artist follows I Kid You Not (2003), Messages From the Ionosphere (2005), and For You, Stranger (2008).

Track Name: The Beat
The Beat was stratified from cold
play the number like you perceived it
A whole step formed a rest, it unfolds
The beat as all around the page
In the drive, through the phase
Before me, a good story unfolds
I experienced enlightment in my dream again
A sense of wholeness without question
I saw you in one of those dreams, did you know?
You were not bound in person, body or soul
you were in the light and on the trees
washing over the windowsill, in the air I breath
I realize that you were never gone from here
Just never only in one place any more
Just never only in ONE place anymore
You are everywhere with a timeless nature
Now I know I'll never have to look another way to see you
I sense you with my heart and thats enough now
You'll be there to admire in the scenery
Someday we'll be floating through the stars
Someday we'll be floating through the stars
