about

Instead of speaking to the tried-and-true themes of romantic love, this EP meditates on issues of growing up and coming to terms with the bittersweet nature of life, at any age. For her second solo release, Diana chose to look specifically to the modern roots and Americana tradition, drawing on performers such as Alison Krauss, the Wailin’ Jennys, Nina Nastasia and Feist. The EP is a solo endeavor (vocals, piano, organ and vibraphone) but includes support from singers Kara Kesselring (Sugarcreek Road) and Amanda Crumley (Mandy and the Bandits) as well as from guitarist Dave Saenger of Diana & the Dishes. Producer Mike Przygoda (Rego, Devin and the Straights) adds evocative ambient sounds (a rain storm, a tea kettle boiling) to place tracks in specific realms of daily life and memory.
