Diet Audio

Jenny Jeuvine and Champagne Leelanau began playing and writing together in 2003. Released "Ecrasez L'Infame" in 2006. Won a Cincinnati Entertainment Award. Toured the northeastern & midwestern US. Played more festivals than you can shake a spotted pigeon at. Wrote more music for a very long time. Will release a new CD in spring 2012.

“Ecrasez L’Infame is down-beat, electronic rock at its finest. This album is melanic and brooding, and its songs will rattle around your head for weeks to come.”

"This three-year-old band has perfected the art of sound manipulation...Their shows are massive..."

-Dayton Daily News

"Like most beat-driven music, Diet Audio inspires motion, but it's not the drum machine you'll lock into and groove with, it's Amy Whitaker's dreamy vocals. Whether it's a hushed or powerful passage, her sensual voice connects the band's brooding combination of electronic and visceral live sounds to the real world."


"They're more soulful than Portishead and more on-target musically than Hooverphonic."


"Although they perpetually seem pulled back and forth between Trip Hop programming and precise New Wave pummeling, Diet Audio has no trouble maintaining a consistent persona thanks to Amy Whitaker's dour vocals. Whichever stylistic turn the song takes, her breathless performances are the band's centerpiece."


"A series of bleeps, monotone sentence fragments, laser-chimes, a pulsating bassline, an authoritative leading lady: Cincinnati's Diet Audio provides the soundtrack to the dreams you wish you were having. Amy Whitaker's otherworldly voice is only the invitation to a visceral, heat-seeking celebration of the body's unspoken and involuntary contract with rhythm."


"...Diet Audio creates a potent sonic hybrid..."
