Let's also throw into the mix here: Producer and Teacher :) There's not enough love to share about this extraordinary talent. Diane Postell has been working her magic for years, never considering anything other than music as the means to support herself. Gary Bartz said the same thing in his interview the other day: when you focus on the factor that makes you most passionate, it keeps you lean and hungry. You are DRIVEN to succeed.
Diane has had that drive since she was very young. At eight, she was training in piano, guitar and singing. You can hear the discipline in her voice when you hear "What I Got To Say" - and that mindset was there, even before she attended Berklee in Boston. Moving to Los Angeles, she worked with bands, found a Church to inspire her to push forward, and heard a second calling: mentoring underserved children.
Our guest's background dictated that particular path. Diane has a sensitivity to kids who are "out of the mainstream." She has a particular affinity for those who are diagnosed with Autism and/or have mental illness. Her partnership with those endeavors that cater to the vulnerable have, in turn, made her craft more powerful. She channels all that pain, promise and joy into her performances.
Diane has a special one coming up, by the way - in the Little Italy neighborhood of Baltimore. That's on July 30th. And that's why my Friend is visiting on July 14th, Bastille Day. Guess that means that we'll hear some French Jazz, huh? You're right - and one of those tracks is on Diane's CD!
She's a special one, this Lady. A graduate of New York University with a B.A. in Music Performance, Diane has gained the attention of some powerful ears. And has worked with Legends in the business. It's HER turn to shine now. And she does. Just LISTEN :)
