Blending the storytelling roots of folk music with the animation of rock, Diana Chittester's live performance is brought to life by her signature percussive, multi-part acoustic guitar playing. Diana's uniquely developed style is accentuated by her alternating between picking and strumming, all while pounding out bass lines and drum beats. She produces this dynamic music without the help of loopers or other technological tricks.
All the while she is sharing the personal stories of family struggle, isolation, and adventure that are behind each song. Diana engages audiences to connect on an individual level.
"Like Michael Hedges and Ani DiFranco, Chittester is a master guitarist who employs open and alternate tunings—and provides her own percussion by on the body of her instrument." - Examiner.com
