Diana JonesDiana Jones' hauntingly earthy vocals and memorable lyrics blend resonant imagery and deep emo- tions that draw on rich cross-currents of country, country blues, and mountain music. Diana won the prestigious Kerrville New Folk Songwriting Contest in 2007, and her debut CD, My Remembrance of You, won the number one spot on the Chicago Tribune's 2006 list of best country music albums. Veteran broadcaster/music writer Mike Regenstrif calls her, "one of the most essential folk-rooted songwriters of the past decade."

Adopted as an infant and raised in New York City, Diana left home at the age of 15 in search of her roots. It wasn't until she was reunited with her birth family (her grandfather was a Tennessee guitar picker) and the music of the Eastern Tennessee hills some years later, that she discovered her true musical voice, a voice that shines through in her original songs.

Tonight, Diana spotlights numbers from her third album, the newly released High Atmosphere (Proper), wrenching hearts with her trademark preoccupations: funerals, trapped miners, orphaned children, and natural disasters; there is even a song called, simply, "Poverty."
