Based in Burwash Landing, Yukon Territory, Diyet & the Love Soldiers mix alternative country, folk, roots and traditional with catchy melodies and stories deeply rooted in Diyet’s Indigenous world view and northern life. Diyet sings in both English and Southern Tutchone (her native language) and plays bass guitar, backed by the Love Soldiers on acoustic and electric guitar, mandolin, pedal steel and percussion.
Diyet was born in a tent and spent her childhood on the ancestral lands of the Kluane First Nation people. Coming from a family grounded in traditions but tempered with a good sense of adventurous hippie attitudes, Diyet creates a musical presence as diverse as her Southern Tutchone, Tlingit, Japanese and Scottish heritage.
