INTELLIGENT SONGWRITER, ENDEARING STORYTELLER & FIERCE GUITAR ACROBATICS
“If you don't believe an acoustic solo performance can fill a room with raw power, and intelligence concurrently, you haven't experienced Diana Chittester”
- Jennifer Conn (The Devil Strip)
Blending the storytelling roots of folk music with the animation of rock, Diana Chittester's show is brought to life by her signature percussive, multi-part acoustic guitar playing blended with intelligent and articulate lyrics. The personal stories she shares on stage resonate with audiences as she invites them along on her journey. Diana has shared the stage with Joan Osborne, Lisa Loeb, Colin Hay and Royal Wood; performing at PACs and venues across the Eastern US & Canada including Kent State PAC, Stocker Arts, Showplace Centre, Evening Muse, Music Box Supper Club and The Ark.
"Like Michael Hedges and Ani DiFranco, Chittester is a master guitarist who employs open and alternate tunings—and provides her own percussion on the body of her instrument." (Examiner.com)
Music Connection Magazine noted her “intelligent and articulate lyrics” on the review of her first full-length album, In This Skin (2012).
Dubbed a “Guitar God” by Skinny Devil Magazine and “a complex guitar acrobat” by ArtVoice Magazine, in 2017 she was invited to perform on the "Cellar Sessions" series recorded live at City Winery in NYC.
Diana Chittester brings emotional testimonies meant to challenge perspectives and the definition of reality with her latest full-band release, PARADOX. The 6-song EP has hit the Americana Music Charts, receiving national airplay from over 50 stations across the US and Canada. The first track "Freedom" made its way onto popular Spotify playlists including American Top 40's.
“...with its powerful vocals, [Paradox] recalls Tigerlily-era Natalie Merchant” (Scene Magazine).
