New Orleans, LA. (Top40 Charts/ Sound Advice Artist Management) - Musician Kristin Diable, who recently made New Orleans home, pre-released her new record, "Extended Play", On April 30th at the Juneau Penthouse of the Ritz Carlton. Among the 400 plus people in attendance was Mayor Ray Nagin, who presented the artist with a proclamation from the city of New Orleans for making NOLA home and contributing to it's incredibly vibrant arts & culture scene. New Orleans own, musician Irving Mayfield, was in attendance to show his support and performed during the event as well.

Diable was joined on stage by her band with Joey Peebles (Trombone Shorty & Orleans Ave) on drums, Casey McAllister on guitar (Bingo Show, Happy Talk Band), Josh Charles on keys & Justin Hilbun on bass.

Additional guests included Jeremy Davenport, Dan Packer (President of Entergy New Orleans), Terry Williams, Richard & Willi Fiske (The Bombay Club), numerous record label representatives including Basin St Records' Mark Samuels, and event hosts, photographer Bernardo and Stewart & Juli Juneau.

Kristin is a native of Baton Rouge and has spent the past 5 years working as a musician and songwriter in New York City. Diable has returned to her native Louisiana, settling in New Orleans where she is rapidly building a name for herself in the burgeoning Crescent City singer/songwriter scene. She has toured extensively throughout the US performing at music venues, colleges & universities (from UPenn's infamous Spring Fling event to acoustic coffee-house series and Carnegie Hall). She has also showcased at South by Southwest, CMJ Music Conference, & Dewey Beach Music Festival. She has shared the stage with John Mayer, KT Tunstall, Amos Lee, Norah Jones and Shawn Colvin, to name a few.

"It's remarkable to learn that Kristin Diable is only 22-years of age. Having only started writing songs six years ago everything she embodies screams of a time since passed and her music is the perfect example - her 60's Folk/Blues/Soul influence is immediately distinguishable. Each beautifully conveyed line spills forth from her lips like sweet strawberry wine. A resplendent story-teller without fault, every song is like a hammer-blow to your senses, evoking images of Louisiana traditions and tales. You can take the girl out of the South but you can't take the South out of the girl- and what a wonderful thing that is." - Joel Crane 2006 (NME, Q, Mojo)
Her next performance will be at The Bombay Club on May 30th at 9:30pm.
