**NEW ALBUM 'GYPSY GIRL' OUT NOW ** It is a familiar story, the country girl goes to the big smoke to pursue a career and doesn't come back. This isn't the case for Diana Cormie, a passionate singer/songwriter, who has returned to her roots to forge a path as one of the newest rising stars of Australian music. A review by the Half A Cow record label states "Diana has a great voice, full of confidence and emotion and it sounds like she can handle the highs and lows required for 'modern' country music. You can look forward to an album full of fantastic songs by a very talented new voice in Australian music". Originally from Coonabarabran, in country NSW, and now based in the Hunter Valley, Diana's music will take you on a journey through life. You will only have to listen to her music once to be singing along to the catchy melodies. Her debut EP 'Crooked Picture', produced by Glen Hannah, was released independently in 2003 and features four tracks. You will appreciate it's authenticity and originality. In 2006, Diana was a finalist in the 2006 Toyota Star Maker Quest held at Tamworth Regional Entertainment Centre (TREC) and again in 2007. Most recently she was a finalist in the Bryan Brown Reel Deal Awards (original music category). She has recently been featured in the Telstra Country Wide Advisory Board Report and invited to open and perform at Wool Expo in Armidale.
