Live acoustic duo unflinchingly exploring feather-encrusted jazz, chanson, and macabre ruminations.  We have a diverse range of expression and styles including Piaf, Brel, Rammstein, Nick Cave and more.   We weave stories, emotional, passionate, and sometimes frightful paths, engaging with and ensnaring the audience but all the time with a glint in the eye!


“ ‘Will you walk into my parlour?’ said the Spider to the Fly,

‘Tis the prettiest little parlour that ever you did spy;

The way into my parlour is up a winding stair,

And I’ve many curious things to show you when you are there’ "


 (Mary Howitt, 1829)


Carnivalesque, at times grotesque, and humorously wicked, Dark Diversions invites the audience into a world of twisted glistening landscapes and multiple textures decked with sonorous emotion and the occasional crow feather...


Beetles are awesome! Sporadically there will be a new beetle addition to the fine photo gallery below...we need to find a friend(s), partner in grime, fellow forager for the Dark Diversions beetle, DeeDee! If you chose the most popular beetle to be nominated, we will do a name hat-pulling trick and the winner will receive a PRIZE!!

"punky, gothic and steampunk darkness with plenty of humour"
