She’s good. She’s damn good.” Sting’s summation of his duet with singer songwriter producer Diane Durrett speaks for anyone who’s ever heard her perform.

Diane is a 2017 Global Peace Award winner.

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, KoKo Taylor, 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 holiday CD Georgia Christmas (2012) to her latest release where she joins forces with drummers Yonrico Scott and Junebug Massey on Soul Suga’ (2015) to her epic recording of Grammy award winning song The Rose (2017) co-produced with Thom TK Kidd.
