ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Offering her listeners a rare gift of original songs with uncommon depth and beauty infused with time-honored values of traditional American Music, Diana Jones has been called the new Emily Dickinson.

Like Dickinson, Diana's work is informed by the themes that have run through her life-love, loss, and redemption. Much of her music takes you on a journey back to her roots in the hills of Eastern Tennessee, though it's certainly not a direct route. Adopted as an infant and reared in New York, Diana was eventually reunited with her birth family and the music that had always moved her.

From the mournful lament of a dance hall girl, to the stomping melodic rant of a young woman's burial instructions, each of Diana's original songs draws life from the rich cross currents of country, country blues and mountain music. The result is vibrant, contemporary music with a gritty and timeless feel.

“My Remembrance of You,” released in February 2006 in both the US and UK, is the first record on the NewSong Recordings label. Gar Ragland, the director of the Mountain Stage NewSong Festival, invited Diana to be the first artist on the new label after seeing her perform at the festival.

“Without question, Diana Jones is one of the most talented Americana artists I have heard in years. Her music cuts straight to the soul with the economy of small batch bourbon.”....Gar Ragland

While her involvement with NewSong has opened many doors, including an appearance on Mountain Stage, the nationally syndicated radio show, she is certainly not new to the songwriting community. Diana honed her skills in the fertile Austin, Texas music scene where she released her first recording, "Imagine Me". The critical acclaim and grass roots following that sprung up around this release caught the interest of Hamstien Publishing and Diana signed a deal to record her second record, "The One That Got Away”.

“Jones seems the consumate professional and studied singer-songwriter, staying within American Folk parameters while using blues and country elements that compliment rather than alter.”...The Austin Chronicle

Seeking time to write from an even deeper place, Diana moved to the Northeast to do some serious woodshedding in the hills of Western Massachusetts. "My Remembrance of You" features eleven of the finest songs from that effort. It includes performances by Jay Ungar on fiddle, Ferron singing harmony vocals, and Duke Levine playing mandolin, mandola and all manner of guitars.

Diana has won numerous songwriting awards during her career. She currently lives in Nashville Tennessee.

What a voice!! I sing along to every song, it is a staple on road trips.
This is one of the best CDs I have heard of its kind. The artist voice and words ring with a clarity and truth that is rarely heard. Pretty Girl, Pony, Hold On Me, My Rememberance of You are 4 of the best on the CD, but don't get stuck on those alone the rest are amazing as well.

Rob

Stunning
Brilliant right across the board. The writing, performance and sound recording are top notch. A must.

Toby Wood

Excellent Music
The great thing about the internet is sometimes you stumble on some great music you have never heard before. Diana Jones cd is one of them, this cd is absolutely superb and my kind of music.
This deserves to be heard and here in the UK I will certainly spread the word around. Oh one last thing, I hope you tour here in the UK Diana.
Thanks also to CD Baby for excellent service.

Earth and Heaven combine in one voice.
I saw Diana at the Kerrville Folk Fest in 2006, bought her CD and I am now buying another for a friend. I would say that is my feeling...this is music to buy for good friends!!

Nancy Smith

A hidden gem!!
I caught Diana's show in Evanston, IL. I was won over with her opening song. This lady is the real thing, pure voice, words from the heart and plays a mean guitar! I bought a CD at the show and ordered 2 more for friends.

Rich Bond

My first CD by Diana, and the best cd I've bought for a long time!
