"With the release of "This Land", the final piece of the Kelly Oliver jigsaw slips neatly into place. There was already plenty of kudos there for her growing live reputation and previous EPs and guest appearances on compilations give hints that see was an artist that could put it all together in the studio as well, "This Land" confirms all that and more.

The first single from the album, "Diamond Girl" is a duet with the much in demand Luke Jackson, bringing together two sparkling lights of the third wave of folk to create one of those songs that lingers in the mind long after the sound has diminished without ever suffering the issue of becoming an ear worm, it simply leaves you with that sense of wonderment that may have other family members telling you to snap out of it". Neil King FATEA Magazine

lyrics

She was his diamond girl, she was his precious love.
Although he never said, 'cause she didn't listen enough.
And when he looked at her, she couldn't hear his words,
she couldn't see him hurt.

She was his diamond girl, he said 'I'm falling for you,
you warned me not to fall, I didn't listen to you.
I know you'll have to go, I know that day is close.
It's the day I fear the most.'

And she could do no wrong in his eyes, all he could see
was this perfect one for him to spend his time with.
And if she said the word, he would be ready for her,
she was his diamond girl.

She was his diamond girl, she said 'I'll stay with you.'
She said 'You treat me well and I believe you're being true.'
She said 'I won't go now, I'll never find someone like you.'
She said 'I'll stay with you.'

And she could do no wrong in his eyes, all he could see
was this perfect one for him to spend his time with.
And if she said the word, he would be ready for her,
she was his diamond girl.

He smiled, 'She's mine',
but he made mistakes all the time.
He'd find he'd learn, he'd pay,
when she finally walked away.

And she could do no wrong in his eyes, all he could see
was this perfect one for him to spend his time with.
And if she said the word, he would be ready for her,
she was his diamond girl.

She was his diamond girl, he said 'Don't ever change.'
He said 'Stay golden girl', she said 'Why don't you do the same?
You were my diamond boy, now you don't shine as bright,
now you don't shine in the light.'
