Diana Stone

This BIo is a bit out of date and is being revised.

Diana is a performing composer and musician playing Piano Violin and Guitar. She played with the Rock/Roots band Elephant Shelf and also the Delta Ladies who mix roots acoustic music and electronica and world music.. She composes in a variety of styles from pop to rock to Jazz and and classical music. Diana is also expert in multi-media recording and music production.

The Music

Actually a lot of the music is up beat and optimistic so figure that one out, I wish I could.Perhaps because music takes me to another place that I can not otherwise occupy, or maybe at the best of times opens a doorway for me. I think I have drifted through every musical style in the history of Mankind, or person-kind perhaps, or am I getting a bit Californian: as I have always been interested in almost every sort of music from pop to the musicals and the classics, I would love to get into film /soundtrack writing but it is of course like every other part of the music world highly competitive.previously I played 1500 gigs with a band called Elephant Shelf. I now also play as part of the Delta ladies a roots, world and Americana band, and I perform the occasional Glass Cage song with them. I am also doing acoustic versions of some of the songs in live performance from time to time. This is something that I would like to expand on when the time is ripe for it.



Why Glass Cage?

I am not really sure, its about being restrained by something you can't see but is most definitely there. We all place restrictions on our hopes, and we are often scared to step outside the bounds and see what we can really do.Is this pretentious or what.Whoops! Do you play live? we also had a cabaret venue called "The Bordello" in Stoke Newington which ran for about 6 months and Blues and Jazz Venue in st Albans

How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?

It opens exposure up to everyone, they can make up their own minds about what they want to listen too, it's very democratic. Its great to have control over the music we make and to be able to let people hear it. Would you sign a record contract with a major label? I wish, dream on, someone please keep me in the style that I am not accustomed to !I will be re-releasing some material on cd later in the year, I just need to sort out better artwork. Band History: Almost a band so many times, but now back to being a solo artist with a virtual band. I am looking to put together a live outfit that will play under the name Diana Stone's Glass Cage as I have musicians that I can borrow occasionally for this when they are not too busy.
