**2006 Toyota Starmaker Finalist at the Tamworth Country Music Festival, 20 - 29th Janaury 2006** It is a familiar story the country girl who goes to the big smoke to pursue a career and often than not doesn't come back. This isn't the case for DIANA Cormie who came back to the country to forge a new path as one of the newest rising stars of Australian country music. Originally from Coonabarabran, in country NSW, and now living in Tamworth, DIANA's music is influenced by her grass root lifestyle and country upbringing. Whilst there are distinct modern country undertones detected in her music, it has also been described as cross-over, easy listening and folk. Her debut EP 'Crooked Picture', produced by Glen Hannah, was released in 2003 and features four tracks. It exposes you to her real life experiences and challenges - straight from the heart, you will appreciate it's honesty. Having only been in Tamworth for one year, DIANA has already begun to make her mark. She launched a 2006 Country Music Festival Album titled "All I Know" (12 tracks) and was a finalist in the 2006 Toyota Star Maker Quest, held 22nd January at the Toyota Country Theatre, Tamworth Regional Entertainment Centre (TREC).
