A native New Yorker with a classical music background. This velvety crooner sings the American songbook with such lush interpretations and sultry, spellbinding sounds that her shows feel like a musical love story.

Diane D’Angelo relocated from San Francisco to Manhattan in early 2020 with the intention of returning to live performance on the New York City cabaret stages where from 1998 to 2004 she worked with her dear friend, musical director, songwriter and pianist Rick Jensen. During that time, Diane crafted and performed in acclaimed shows at Arci’s Place, Don’t Tell Mama, Judy’s Chelsea, The Waldorf Astoria and the Firebird. Her last show with Jensen and bassist Tom Hubbard was at a sold out 54 Below in October 2017 and Feinstein's at the Nikko in San Francisco in April 2018.
Diane is a classically trained vocalist who has sung for two former U.S. Presidents. She can be heard on the soundtrack for The Godfather III and has worked with the San Francisco Symphony Chorus. As a soloist, Diane has sung the comic operas of Gilbert & Sullivan with the Lamplighters Music Theatre and the San Diego Comic Opera. She has performed at the World Expo in Shanghai, on the Greek island of Mykonos, and on the Playa at the Burning Man Festival in the original opera, The Daughter's of Ishtar, creating the role of Ishtar, the Goddess of Love.
With her unique, warm and exciting spin, Diane sings songs from the American Songbook along with tunes she has picked up from around the world. She has achieved an elegant metamorphosis into a sultry, sophisticated singer gracing the cabaret stage with her very own lush vocal interpretations.
The pandemic may have slowed down live performing but not Diane, she is thrilled to announce her forthcoming album with pianists Tedd Firth and the late Mike Renzi. Which will include musical arrangements by Gregory Toroian, Christopher Denny, Tedd Firth, Michael Orland and Beckie Menzie!
Diane is excited to return to the stage in 2023 with the launch of her new show “Destination Moon”. The show is a sweet peek into the singer’s lust for life through the music of Sammy Cahn/Jimmy Van Heusen, Carolyn Leigh/Cy Coleman, Charles Strouse/Lee Adams, Tommy Wolf Fran Landesman, Cole Porter, George & Ira Gershwin, Frank Loesser, David Yazbek, Michel LeGrand and Alan & Marilyn Bergman.
When Diane shares her point of view, it becomes a sensuous tapestry, gorgeously weaving a siren’s spell with a voice as smooth as honey and an abundant, bountiful spirit.
