Pattern of My Heart
Dianne grew up in Kittery, Maine the youngest of three girls. She began performing music in college and later became the lead singer for the award winning New England band, Angel Train. She moved to Nashville in the early 1990's and began a career as a songwriter. In 1995 Dianne met and fell in love with songwriter Michael Killen and the two began performing as The Killens. Michael and Dianne entered the studio the following year to begin work on their first album, 'A Voice Like Yours.' That CD defined their sound as a duo while showcasing their original styles and songs. Appearances on The Grand Ole Opry, at The Kerrville Folk Festival, Billy Blocks Western Beat and The Bluebird Cafe followed. The duo has gone on to release three more CD's including 2005's 'Eagles & Horses.' 2002 marked the release of Dianne's first solo disc, 'Pattern of My Heart.' As Dianne puts it, 'I had always wanted to make an album of all these songs I'd written over the years and Michael championed the cause, producing and designing the whole thing. I'm very proud of both the album and his dedication to making it happen.' Michael adds, 'It had been a dream of mine for some time to make an album of Dianne's original songs. I give all the credit to Dianne for the amazing singer that she is and for writing incredible songs.' Whether performing with Michael or on her own, Dianne Killen is thrilled to bring her unique songs and voice to contemporary American music.
