Pick of the Day: Diana Panton

Born in Hamilton, Diana Panton (pictured) is described as a rising star on the Canadian jazz scene. As a 19-year-old, she was able to hone her skills as a vocalist by studying at the Banff Centre for the Arts. She has four albums to her credit, with the most recent being To Brazil With Love which celebrates the samba and bossa nova musical traditions of that South American country.

Tonight, she’s in town to play a show at LeBistro (3850 Hillsdale) that’s being presented by Regina Jazz Society. Doors are at 7:30 p.m., and tickets are $10 RJS Members, $15 Non-Members, $5 Students.

I couldn’t find any video of Panton performing live, but here’s a link to an audio recording of her singing “And I Love Him”.

  1. So a non member pays 200% more than a student?
    Q. Why are there 99%ers? duh ?!?

    A. Just another reflection as to why many people agree to think that anyone over 30yrs. old is better off( financially )than you.

    See her on you tube, along with

    Foxy Shazam
    Puddle of Mudd
    Allah-LA
    Sloan
    Versaemerge
    Beadyeye
    Ted Nugent

    More bands in Regina very cool.

    Regina commercial radio, bad,( slack oh so slack),
    actual slackers would come up with better playlists.

  2. I would recommend folks into music of a different sort check out the bill at the Exchange tonight! Phenomenal vocalist Laura Stevenson is headlining. She’s one of the best singers I’ve heard in the last decade, playing a sort of modern soul/folk/punk hybrid that is emotionally intense. Her 2011 album was probably the best released all year anywhere.

    Check out some tracks here: http://www.soundsalvationarmy.com/the-wait-it-was-killing-me/

    The opener is a bonkers folk-punk act from Arizona called Andrew Jackson Jihad that are very interesting.
