It was a real pleasure to be able to sit in with Butch Trucks and The Freight Train Band this summer. Butch (The Allman Bros. Band) graciously invited me to sing "Ophelia" by The Band on the last string of shows of their summer tour of the North East US. Not only was it a blast singing with such amazing players but to sing a Band song was the icing on the cake for me! They also had me tag along to my first Music Masters camp in Big Indian NY at a very beautiful placed called Full Moon Resort. Here was the 4th year of Roots Rock Revival camp, and I was so blown away by the vibes and the music. It was a little overwhelming at first but by the end it was really hard to leave all my new friends and such a beautiful hidden treasure. Thanks to all the amazing people I've met along the way this summer and I hope to see you all out next year!

The CBC has added Gossip in the Devil's Radio to their catalog! Please feel free to call into your local CBC and request a tune!  Here is what Mark Rheaume has to say about it:

"Diana Catherine may hail from Canada, but her timeless blend of roots, country, and blues is Americana personified. The wide variety of sounds on "Gossip in the Devil's Radio" is the equal of her chops...and this woman has the chops! Not to be missed.|"

Mark Rheaume, head of CBC Radio’s Music Resources department and host of Fresh Air. In some sense you could almost call him an ‘Executive Plugger’! Mark has reported on music for many CBC shows, including  Definitely Not the Opera and Ontario Morning. His syndicated music review column is carried on CBC stations across the country and he has served as a juror for the Polaris Prize and the Juno Awards.

Hold onto yer hats folks! I'm about to give you the official release date for Gossip in the Devil's Radio....... Drum roll please.... DECEMBER 15th 2015!!!! It will be available for purchase online and live. You can check it out on itunes, amazon, CD baby and right here on the website.


I'll be letting you know about the CD release party here in my home state of Florida soon. I'll be setting up a live internet broadcast for those of you who want to take part in the action from the comfort of your house(or wherever you get wifi). More info to come on that.


Thanks for being patient everyone and I hope you enjoy the fruits of this very long labor.



Diana Catherine

Hey Everyone! So a lot has gone down since I've last posted here. I got married and had a baby boy, who isn't much of a baby anymore. I've put my album on hold to be mommy for a few years. Best decision I've ever made! But with that said, I'm ready to get this album out. I'm feeling the itch and I think it's something you all need to hear. I'm very proud of it and the amazing talent that accompanied me on the album. So this I promise, before 2015 is over you will see the new album from Diana Catherine! Stay tuned for details and upcoming shows. Cheers!

In the Studio NOW!!!

Diana Catherine is hard at work with her second full length album. It's in it's final stages, stay tuned for a release date to come!


"I'm so excited to share these new songs with everyone! Bud(Snyder) and I are working hard to bring you a wonderful eclectic mix of material, in true Diana Catherine form. Unfortunately the Thrusty Tweeters will not be joining me on this album but I look forward to working with them again in the future. I'm super excited to work with the amazing and talented (former Allman Brother) Dangerous Dan Toler!!!! Not to mention the incredible talents of Berry Oakley Jr., Damon Fowler, Thorson Moore, Pedro Arevalo, James Vernardo, Mike Fender and so many more! 2013 is going to be a wild ride as I look forward to joining forces on the road with my brothers and sisters in our great big musical family.  See you all at the next show! Let the good times (rock and) ROLL!!!"


   - Diana Catherine



On March 25th 2012 I was part of a very special show in NYC. Berry Oakley's Jive Ass Review with the Rowdy Roadies and the Shady Ladies LIVE at the famous Iridium Jazz Club, frequented by the amazing Les Paul himself! I was a Shady Lady muhaaa! The wonderful reps at GIBSON NYC Jim Felber and Mike Mullin were nice enough to share some tremendous gear with us. One story that they shared with me, about a particular piece of gear, brought out the uber fan in me. I was in need of a Mandolin for the showcase so they were going to hook me up with a very VERY special one indeed! They said when Bob Dylan....yes THE BOB DYLAN... comes to town they usually lend him this particular Mandolin. Him and only him. Until now!!! They decided to also loan me this very same Mandolin for this very special night! It sang like no other I've ever played! I could feel Bob's MOJO on it! So there is my Bob Dylan Mandolin story, which I'm very happy to share with all of you wonderful folk!


More Album News to come please stay tuned!

We'd like to Introduce you to a few new Tweeters! Please Welcome Mike Fender, Berry Duane Oakley and Jeff Arevalo to the Thrusty Family. They will be seen and heard around with Diana Catherine along with Kevin Robinson and Mark Wilson.


We are also pleased to announce the coming of the 2nd album! We will begin recording in Jan 2012, check in here for video blogs live from the sessions at The Spirit Ranch. Even more exciting are some of the special guests we will have on this album including Mike Kach(Dickey Betts and Great Southern) Garrett Dawson(Twinkle Schascle Yochim) and Berry Duane Oakley (Chuck Negron Band)!

Hey Everyone! I'm happy to tell you that I'm spending the summer in Sarasota Florida working again with our producer Bud Snyder(The Allman Brothers) on the Tweeters new album!

This is number two for us and it's gonna be bigger and better then ever. We're gonna have some amazing special guests on the album but yer gonna have to wait and see who ;P

For now, the tweeters have taken the summer off from touring. We miss you friends but next time we see you it will be with a NEW disk!

Check out the events page for a few shows we have coming up this fall, we can't leave you too long without a little tweeters fix.


Enjoy the summer, be safe and drink whiskey!

Hi everyone!


Just wanna let you know we are posting new dates in 2011 almost everyday, check back and see when we might be rolling through your town.

I'd also like to let you fine folks know about a little fundraiser that the Tweeters are organizing. As some of you may know last summer we were one of the acts on the main stage on Sat night at The Music on The Mountain Festival (MOM). It was by far the best festival I've ever been a part of, the music was killer the people were great and the vibe was right. It was their first year in action so we wanted to do our part and help make sure this festival continues to grow, so many more people can enjoy it for years to come.

SOOOO we will be performing with a stellar line up of musicians on Thursday Feb 3rd 2011 at The Rivoli in Toronto to help bring some love back to the great people at MOM!

Tickets are $10 and all proceeds go to the festival. The acts included on the bill are Diana Catherine and the Thrusty Tweeters, Andrea Ramolo and her One Man Band, Brian MacMillan, Brenna MacQuarrie and much much more!

See you all down the road...

Well those of you who have seen us live in the last 8 months have been hearing this new tune of ours Birdman. It was inspired by a painting I saw at Arts Wells Festival in 2009. We were blessed to play it this year and I told that story as I often do, low and behold the artist was there! Ladies and Gents the wonderful artist behind the painting Laura McIntosh .  You can see here work if you click her name. But for now here is the Painting that started it all! Woot Woot Canadian Artists Rock!

Big Thanks!!!!!

"Wow! This is a debut?  It's seems after just one listen that I've loved this album forever!  Great songs, a passionate singer with a terrific band equals an album that can't be ignored!  I can't believe these guys recorded this right under my nose in my hometown of Sarasota, and I didn't know about it.  It's early, but this is now the best new album I've heard this year and it may be some time before anything better comes along!"
