“She’s good. She’s damn good.” Sting’s summation of his duet with singer songwriter Diane Durrett speaks for anyone who’s ever heard her perform. A Memphis reporter once wrote that Diane’s performance was so powerful that “If you don’t go see her she may just come see you!” With a blend of raw soulful vocals, sultry tones and strong original songs Durrett has sung with Sting, The Indigo Girls, Gregg Allman, Chuck Leavell (Rolling Stones) and Peter Stroud (Sheryl Crow). Durrett has opened shows for Tina Turner, Faith Hill, Little Feat, Delbert McClinton and Derek Trucks.
Durrett has long reflected the musical passions that inspired her while growing up in Atlanta, GA. From her energy-driven breakthrough debut 50,000 Volts of Soul (1993) to her superbly executed Rhythm of Life (1998) to her acoustically-driven CHILL (2004), to the LIVE CD, Georgia On the Groove (2007), to the groovy, Blame It On My DNA (2009) produced by Ike Stubblefield, to her latest holiday CD Georgia Christmas (2011).
Her song catalogue includes co-writes with the likes of Jerry Ragovoy (Piece of My Heart), Emily Sailers (Gallileo), Kristen Hall (Baby Girl), Bonnie Bramlett (Superstar), and William Bell (Born Under A Bad Sign). Durrett’s songs and voice are well received in films and advertising as well. "What If Everybody Wins" was selected for the film, "The Unseen" broadcast on BRAVO. Durrett continues her musical expedition towards defining her soulful voice and creating colorful songs. Durrett is a down-to-earth-diva. She sings from her soul, writes with heart & humor.
