Diane Taber’s new CD, Serve with Straw, is the edgy side of indie in a hot relationship with 21st century jazz. Diane toured the US and Canada, extensively, as a featured singer. In 2006 she took her first high-dive into songwriting and mid-air knew she was ready to write and sing her own songs. Her music is influenced by our constantly changing world. “Where we go from where we’ve been is what’s exciting and potent,” says Diane, and each new CD is a natural progression of writing and performance. As to the latest album she invites you to, “Jump in, the music’s fine.”
