To date, Diana Krall's albums have garnered five GRAMMY Awards, eight JUNO Awards and have also earned nine gold, three platinum and seven multi-platinum albums. Krall's unique artistry transcends any single musical style and has made her one of the most recognizable artists of our time. Her 2017 solo album, Turn Up The Quiet, has earned critical praise. MOJO Magazine called the new album "spectacular" and said Krall was "on top form." People Magazine said, "Diana Krall's new music will have fans falling for her all over again."
Having already ventured to Europe
and with plans to visit South America, the Turn Up The Quiet World Tour is shaping up to be one of the biggest in Krall's career. Krall's band of Anthony Wilson (guitar), Karriem Riggins (drums), Robert Hurst (bass), and Stuart
Duncan (fiddle) has been wowing audiences with material from Krall's latest album.
Turn Up The Quiet was the last recording Krall made with her long-time mentor and collaborator, producer Tommy LiPuma, before his sudden passing last year. The album is dedicated to his memory.
