Bluegrass/Country Gospel Roots Sprouting by Diane McKoy

Diane McKoy: Bluegrass/Country Gospel Roots Sprouting

Diane McKoy

Diane McKoy is a one of a kind artist - a powerful and moving performer whose creative vocal phrasing and engaging stage presence (yet down home manner) keep audiences raft. With a voice like that, at turns, soars, swoops, and slides, she'll sometime play with the beat - singing ahead of it here, behind it there - syncopating and punctuating with throaty phrases and the occasional falsetto turn (check out the ending of "Jesus Put it All Together"!)

On this album, with a group of crack backing musicians, Diane offers repertoire both old and new, including Margie Sullivan's (of the Sullivan Family) "There’ll Be No Dying", a Stanley Brothers' classic, the traditional "Wayfaring Stranger", several by her good friend, singer/songwriter Mildred Statzer, one by Randall Hylton, and more. Diane breathes new life into the older songs while making the newer ones her own. The performances are all top shelf. The singing is sublime.

Diane McKoy has made New York City her home for many years, where she has been called the Queen of Bluegrass Gospel. For more than three decades, Diane has performed country and bluegrass gospel music both in her chosen home state of New York and throughout the country, performing everywhere from the corner church to the White House and is well received wherever she goes.

A devout Christian, Diane is a woman who lives the life she sings about in her song. "Before I was saved I was singing country music, and then when I was saved I changed the words and kept the music," she says. Diane is blessed, and in turn blesses all who listen.

Sit back, relax (or, even put on your shouting shoes) and enjoy "Bluegrass/Country Gospel Roots Sprouting!
