ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Diane Durrett has opened for such industry greats as Tina Turner, Delbert McClinton and Koko Taylor; sung with Sting in Nashville and Gregg Alman in Atlanta; been named a regional "Peachtree Pick" by Billboard magazine; and even lent her vocal talents to the auto industry for the memorable "Ford Is Right For You" advertising campaign. Her release "Rhythm of Life" is proof positive that Diane's musical career is destined to soar even higher.

"Rhythm of Life" was chosed as CD of the week by Atlanta's number one rock/alternative radio station 99X. Her single, "Take Me As I Am" was selected for the soundtrack of feature film "Ready, Willing and Able." Diane's song "Blue Eyed Soul" was included on the Taxim/Warner Brothers' release "Peach State Blues," a compilation showcasing a new generation of American artists.

"Rhythm of Life" exemplifies the full range of Diane's considerable talents, not only as a songwriter and singer, but as a producer as well. Blending elements of pop, rock and soul, Diane earns the media quotes that have compared her delivery to everything from the emotional rawness of Janis Joplin to the soulful sounds of Aretha Franklin to the feistiness of Tina Turner.

Born in Murray, Kentucky, Diane moved to Atlanta during childhood, where she got her start in music within the church. From those gospel roots blossomed the enigmatic performer Diane is today. While paying her dues in local music venues, Diane earned a degree in journalism from Georgia State University. Yet, in spite of her move to the metropolitan arena, she remains grounded, reflecting a down-to-earth attitude about life as well as music, donating her talents to raise funds for cancer survivors and AIDS foundations.

Press Quotes:

"She's been compared to everyone from Gladys Knight to Janis Joplin, from Aretha Franklin to Melissa Etheridge. But if the truth be known, there is only one Diane Durrett, and her brand of soulful music is more than capable of standing alone. The rapidly rising star is wowing big names in the industry with her bluesy, brassy, belt-it-from-the-depths delivery, and her original tracks are quickly becoming new soul favorites."
-Creative Loafing, Greenville/Spartanburg, SC

"If you can look past the pretty face, you'll catch the passion of soul music, the pain of the blues and the grit of R & B, rolled into one big blast of energy."
-Brevis, Dhattanooga, TN

"Singer/songwriter Diane Durrett has the cheekiness to title one of her songs "Blue Eyed Soul." But she earns the right on her album "Rhythm of Life," with such songs as the unabashedly funky "Don't That Bring You Back?" (complete with Stevie Wonder-style electric piano and the bluesy, gospelish "Sweet Savin' Grace," which combines the drama of a Sarah McLachlan song with Durrett's torchy, velvety delivery."
-The Tennessean, Nashville, TN

Fantastic . . . .Voice . . . .Writing, No sampling
I stumble on your site by accident. Found what I read interesting (I am tired of the current programmed music.). So I downloaded a few of your samples. I liked what I heard so I ordered your discs (Chill and Rhythm Of Life). I got them in today. Boy was I surprised. It was like getting a present you always wanted but wasn’t expecting. You are fantastic !!!! Your Voice . . . .Your Writing ..........I am glad artists like you are sharing your gifts with us. I will tell who will listen about your talents. Thanks and keep me posted on any new projects. God Bless.

Too good to be true
I was at a friend's house playing cards and this CD was playing in the background and caught my ear. I went to several stores trying to locate it to no avail...then I found CD Baby and presto/chango - ordered both Rhythm of Life and Chill. What a nice gift I gave myself. Everyone should be so lucky as to stumble upon music that soothes the soul and also delivers a message. I also saw that you are located in Atlanta. Hopefully I can get over there and see you in person sometime. Kudos!
