Releasing her first full length album, In This Skin, Diana embraces the roots of folk music while adding an edgy attitude to the genre. Pounding out explosive rhythms and intricate leads, she allows her guitar style to headline. Ready to face the tensions of expressive lyrical content, In This Skin, boldly addresses topics taboo to the general masses. Challenging her religiously structured childhood and examining the intimacy of her relationships, Chittester speaks openly about her experiences and their impacts. Her new CD is now available on iTunes and can be heard on Spotify.
Giving back, Diana and her record label, Fighting Chance Records, recently partnered with Cleveland PFLAG with efforts to raise money and awareness. To a cause that hits close to home; Diana is donating 50% of profits from CD sales directly back to the organization. For more information visit www.dianachittester.com.
