YAY, IT’S HERE! It it with great joy that today I announce the release of my new album “SIX” by Diane Ward and the Band of Virgos!!
ALBUM CREDITS: Many talented and amazing people made this recording possible starting with of course, The Band of Virgos, Jack Shawde (acoustic & electric guitars), Debbie Duke (bass), Bob Taylor (piano & organ), & John Yarling (drums). We have very special guest performances lovingly sprinkled throughout the 14 songs like Nicole Yarling (background vocals), Matthew Sabatella (background vocals), John Merchant (strings), Ruti Celli (cello), & Curtis Alva (cowbell). SIX was co-produced by Diane Ward and Jack Shawde. We recorded basic tracks with engineer Jason Sedawie at DogManic Recording Studios and everything else was engineered by and recorded at Jack Shawde’s private studio. SIX was mixed by John Merchant & mastered by Adam Ayan at Gateway Mastering. Music and lyrics written by Diane Ward except: “You’re a Ghost” written by Liz McAvoy & Diane Ward; “Days That Keep Me up at Night” written by Shannon LaBrie, Jodi Marr, & Diane Ward; “Sweetheart” written by Molly Bowers & Diane Ward. All writing collaborations made possible by Abfab Artists & Jodi Marr.
THANK YOUS: It is with eternal gratitude that I would like to thank my very patient crowdfunding champions for SIX. Your love and generous support made this album a reality. I hope that I did you proud. SIX would not have been possible without the unwavering support, contributions, and talents of my extraordinary friends, Jack Shawde, Debbie Duke, Bob Taylor, John Yarling, Rose Gargiulo, Jodi Marr, AbFab Artists, Lizzy McAvoy, Shannon LaBrie, Molly Bowers, Nicole Yarling, Matthew Sabatella, Ruti Celli, John Merchant, Adam Ayan, and Jason Sedawie. You are all inspiring human beings. Thank you for this wonderful journey. With much love, Diane
