March 31, 2023 – indie singer/songwriter Irene Diaz is thrilled to release her new single “Lost” which is out now.
Irene Diaz says, ‘A confession of desire, LOST is that in-between where longing and fulfilment collide.’
In support of her new music, Irene will be hitting the road throughout the year and doing a residency at The Silverlake Lounge every Wednesday in June. See all tour dates below. More to be announced.
More than a decade after breaking into the Los Angeles indie scene, singer/songwriter Irene Diaz is breaking new ground in 2022 with her first full-length album, Lovers & Friends. The highly anticipated album was more than five years in the making and executive produced by Grammy Award nominee and Latin Grammy Award winner, Carla Morrison.
The Highland Park native originally launched her career in 2010 as a modern torch singer crooning soulful ballads with bare bone instrumentals, accompanied only by the piano, guitar, or ukulele. Her minimal approach not only paid tribute to musical influences like Sade, Nina Simone, Hope Sandoval, and Ritchie Valens, but also underscored the rich range and captivating emotions conveyed by her voice alone.
Her standout talent quickly prompted swift recognition for her music catalog and stunning live performances, causing her to become a media favorite. NPR repeatedly praised her over the years and even featured Diaz in their renowned “Tiny Desk Concerts” series. Others like OC Weekly have lauded her music as being “from the Nina Simone school of songwriting,” and further recognition has been published over the years by L.A. Record, Grimy Goods, The South Pasadena, and more. Diaz’s 2013 single, “Crazy Love,” has over 2 million plays on Spotify and made the list of top 10 wedding songs on Bride.com alongside music by John Legend and Lana Del Rey. “Crazy Love” has been such an international hit, that Diaz is frequently booked for performances all over the world to personally sing it at exclusive private events.
