Diana Panton

Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre.

Diana Ariadne Panton is a Canadian jazz vocalist. Her second album, If the Moon Turns Green, received a nomination for the Juno Awards of 2009 in the category of Vocal Jazz Album of the Year. Her fourth and fifth albums, To Brazil With Love and Christmas Kiss, were nominated in the same category for the Juno Awards of 2012 and 2013, respectively.

Panton started her music career as a member of the Hamilton All Star Jazz Band,[1] until 2002. After hearing her perform with this band, veteran multi-instrumentalist Don Thompson invited her to attend the Banff Centre, where he was a faculty member. This led to Thompson's collaboration on Panton's albums, a decade later. Panton holds a Master's degree in French literature from McMaster University. She teaches French and Art at Westdale Secondary School in Hamilton, Ontario.[2]
