Diana Lawrence


Pianist and Vocalist

Diana released her second solo EP, “To: Aging Children,” in late summer 2012. On this project of original songs, Diana explores the idea of growing up, at any age. The EP is now available on CDBABY and ITUNES, as well as Spotify and other streaming services. When you buy the physical album (at a live show or on CDBaby) or download the album from BANDCAMP, you receive the album artwork, which includes a stamped envelope and letter to the listener. You can find all of the album lyrics HERE.

Diana has begun expanding her songwriting into composing for musical theatre, and now has projects in the works with Route 66 Theatre (NEXT STOP) and The Music Theatre Company (MILL GIRLS).
