Her adopted father worked for a chemical corporation and they moved around a lota€¦ New Jersey, then Rhode Islanda€¦ When Diana was 15, she left her foster family.
Exhibiting her independence early, she joined a Baptist choir when she was 11 because their songs were more interesting. While she was still playing music during her school years, after graduation, she became a serious painter.
After college, still in her early 20's, during a post graduation stay in England, Diana got badly hurt in a car accident. When she was feeling better, she went to the library and got all the American music she could find -- Elvis Presley, the blues, some kind of history of American music and then she taped it.
In 1996 she went to Ireland for a month with a friend who was a great musician and who knew many people there.
She recorded her first album Imagine Me in 1996 and in 1998, her second The One That Got Away. The best chance in the NY area to see Diana in the immediate future is when she opens for Alejandro Escovedo at The Outpost in the Burbs on April 13th.
Diana's mother had moved to New York when she was 17, then went to airline school in Hartford, Conn. 35 36 37 38 39 40 year old technologist who lives just South of Boston, MA in a small town named Scituate. Kevin is currently employed as CTO at DebtX, the largest online marketplace of buyers and sellers of commercial debt. Early obsessions included Star Wars, making Super8 stop-motion movies, computers, listening to and performing music, American history, science fiction and fantasy books, video games. Spent two years (1985-86) playing keyboards in a band called Facade which played the Western New York club circuit. Was questioned by the Secret Service while in college, ultimately "released" and told by an agent that he was a credit to his country. Movies: Godfather I and II, The Right Stuff, Goodfellas (as well as most Scorsese films), Brazil, Star Wars, Empire Strikes Back, Blade Runner, Tarantino's movies, Moonstruck, This is Spinal Tap, the collected works of John Hughes, the Coen Brothers, just about anything with De Niro. This site is a place for Kevin to post interesting (or not so interesting) stuff -- mostly computer related.
I had spent quite a bit of time in the WTC at IDD's offices, as well as Cantor Fitzgerald's.
Todd Beamer, to fellow passengers aboard United Airlines Flight 93, moments before they stormed hijackers on their plane. Originally many people thought the pictures (from Reuters) were doctored, but it turns out that the posters really do have Bert's image. Well, I'm sure many of you are familiar with the classic Bert is Evil page (archived as a PDF here), which features the sordid life of the cranky Muppet.
A print shop in Bangladesh needed pictures of Bin Laden for a poster they were creating for a protest, and simply grabbed various photos from the Internet.
Over the past few weeks, the craze of doctoring this photo in new and exciting ways has started on the Internet. If you're paranoid and living in NYC (wait - just about everyone in NYC is paranoid), you'll like this web site. The transition was very easy, and I've managed to get the Perl-based Movable Type package integrated into my PHP-based web site.
RealOne, and at first glance, it looked like Real started charging for the player, or at least required a valid credit card number before they would allow the download.
After poking around the site for awhile, I found that they had buried the free download page deep in the bowels of the site.
My tool of choice for ripping has always been MediaMatch, but for some reason I just cannot get it to run under Windows XP Professional.
I had read that Windows Media Player 8.0 finally supported ripping to formats other than WMA. Start up Windows Media Player and select Tools->Options and click on the "Copy Music" tab. I'll make an MP3 file of the conference replay and post it here ASAP (with John's permission, of course). MKS toolkit back in the days when I was a PC device driver programmer (wow - 11 years ago). Microsoft, believe it or not, also sells a product called Windows Services for UNIX that gives you many UNIX tools. Cygnus also sponsored a software project where they were writing a DLL for Windows that would provide many of the standard UNIX library calls.
David Walend and myself have started a new Open Source project named Presentation Builder for Java (PBJ for short). The path to such early recognition was taken eagerly, like a runner catapulting from a starting block. Our interview, in exploring her lifea€™s path, revealed a person who, for all her dazzling gifts, is still down-to-earth, quick to say a€?thank youa€? to any accolades a€” and a delight to talk to. As far as influences go, she says a€?It was all over the map,a€? To a listener, ita€™s easy to see that jazz really got in, and got in deep. About her mom and dada€™s rearing skills, she continued: a€?The daring does come from a place of being supported as a child and as an artist. Her grandfather, who was a jazz pianist and a composer, had passed away when Sonya was very young, and had left her mother his grand piano. Wikipedia, in a somewhat dated post, states: a€?As a 10-year-old, she performed at the 1999 Special Olympics World Games in North Carolina. Sonya has said that she developed as a jazz singer through her studies with Sheila Jordan, a renowned vocalist and educator (Jordan initially became known as an interpreter of the music of Charlie a€?Birda€? Parker and later studied with Charles Mingus and Lenny Tristano).


Although she had started studying guitar with June Millington (followed later by lessons with Michael Daves), she was, at this point, fronting the band strictly as a singer. Sonya continued to strictly sing out front with the band as back-up until she was forced to start playing guitar with the band.
Her fourth CD, released in 2010, Convict of Conviction, (more of an EP - 7 tracks) is another distinct departure and was, as she says, a€?a collection of music from winter, done with a string quartet.a€? We hear more piano here, as this is where Sonya decided to seriously make use of it. Sonya got a camera from her father when she was 12 and has been an avid photographer ever since.
The foundation for Sonyaa€™s dream to be a singer was built brick by brick, one teacher after another.
Although she listened to James Taylor and such on the radio and liked it, she felt more drawn to the more rootsy sounds of performers like Cash and Harris. At 16-17 years old, she attended support groups for adopted persons and other people who were searching and met some birth mothers and found it to be an amazing experience. She came back after four weeks of being steeped in Celtic music She says that over the years, at times she's had to paint a portrait or paint a room in somebody's house, but other than that it's been all music.
That tour has ended, but hopefully, they'll reprise this partnership so we can see more of this masterful pairing. Although sheA  listened to James Taylor and such on the radio and liked it, she felt more drawn to the more rootsy sounds of performers like Cash and Harris. He shares his house with his wife Heather, sons Thomas and Peter, daughter Isabelle, and Bart the English Setter.

It dips, swoops and flips up into a falsetto at times, not commonly used by women singers a€” like a female version of Al Green. The first album, Words Came Back to Me, released when she was just 16, put her on the aural map, not just locally, but worldwide.
Her parents, both full-time professional artists, had a big impact on their toddler daughter. Although the family lived in a rural area, it was part of the a€?Happy Valleya€? and home of a€?Five Colleges,a€? including Smith and Amherst.
For four years she has taken part in the Vermont Jazz Center Summer Program with Sheila Jordan, and she has won an a€?outstanding musiciana€? award from the University of Massachusetts High School Jazz Festival and a scholarship to its Jazz in July summer program.
She had always kept a journal, but the events of that day would become more than just a journal entry. By the time she started performing, she had written about three original songs, and filled out her sets with covers of jazz standards.
Quoted elsewhere, she said: a€?One of the main things I remember doing when I was young, was driving ridiculous distances, just to sing one song at a jam session here, or a show there. Speaking about her development in general, she said: a€?Everythinga€™s happened almost, because I had to [learn new skills]. A sponsorship deal with Starbucksa€™A® Hear Music label brought the CD into coffee shops around the world. In an interview with Howard Berkes of NPR, we hear: a€?Once I started writing I couldna€™t stop.
When she was 6, a nun in her Catholic school came into her class and picked her out to sing in the 12-year-old chorus.
She found later, when she discovered her birth family, that her grandfather had been a picker and singer. A place called Cades Cove, a settlement that got bought out by the government in the 30's during the whole WPA thing.
During the festival, they'd drive out after the mainstage acts had played, get there at midnight, play at the campfires until 4am, then drive home. They recently went in to the studio and will self release that special project later this month both online and at shows. That being said, he doesn't own a gun, he thinks Ayn Rand was a bit wacky and he doesn't run around calling Liberals "Socialists".
O'Rourke, Neal Stephenson ("Zodiak" through "Cryptonomicom" - "Quicksilver" sucked), Bill Bryson, Cory Doctorow, Terry Pratchett, China Mieville, John Varley, Tom Wolfe, Stephen King, Christopher Moore, Matt Ruff. The development tools require a 80386 or newer computer to run, as do the programs they produce. Lost in a reverie, she questions an inner voice that says a€?walk away a€¦ walk away a€¦ walk away.a€? The lover she is contemplating comes with a lot of baggage and the mic shea€™s singing into lets us hear every breathy syllable.
Her newest album, Convict of Conviction, reveals an artist eager to break new ground every time she puts pen to paper or sets her instrument(s) in motion. Ita€™s a wonder that we havena€™t heard stories about her first cries carrying a melody as she emerged from her mothera€™s womb.
Their studios were a€?a stonea€™s throwa€? behind the house they lived in and both played recorded music while they worked.
The area is also rich in music and home to many bands, such as Fountains of Wayne, The Nields and Winterpills. That didna€™t happen, she has said, but the lessons have obviously been a huge success in every other regard. She said: a€?I think it was the first time I really understood the worlda€™s suffering and felt really bad about it.
In 2003, an article by Seth Rogovoy, of Berkshire Living Magazine, described 13-year-old Sonya this way: a€?poised and well-spoken a€¦ shea€™s not at all haughty and doesna€™t come across as particularly precocious. It was made with Grammy-winning producer Malcolm Burn (Daniel Lanois, Peter Gabriel, Emmylou Harris) after her tour with Hancock ended. After the near death experience, she wanted to do something, that if she died tomorrow, she would've wanted to have accomplished in her lifetime.


The material, with its old-timey feel, was so honest and authentic, it put one in mind of Gillian Welch and David Rawlings or Dave Carter and Tracy Grammer. In most cases, the programs it produces can be sold commercially without license or royalties.
Using JavaBeans lets the user create a compelling, interactive presentation that can pull information and media from beyond a static document.
Teachers were within reach and, with her mothera€™s help, she eagerly studied with quite a few. Her other vocal coach during this period, Rebecca Parris, is a jazz singer similar to and on a level with Carmen McRae and Sara Vaughan and is known as the First Lady of Boston Jazz. I felt the need to do something a€” I had the desire to fix it, even though you cana€™t fix the worlda€™s suffering.
She just happens to be the youngest performer to have sold out the Iron Horse Music Hall in Northampton two times in a row. If I dona€™t write a song for a couple of weeks, I feel something pent-up inside of me that needs to come out.
She spent weeks alone in a cabin in the woods writing the material, something she had never done before. This wish is warranted to perform as expected within the usual application of good tidings for a period of one year, or until the issuance of a subsequent holiday greeting, whichever comes first, and warranty is limited to replacement of this wish or issuance of a new wish at the sole discretion of the wisher. Additional tools let a user show the presentation (along with an outline on a multihead system), and record audio and video for playback later. The rock band The Slip joined her for the recording sessions and then later accompanied her on tour.
Often when it finally comes out, ita€™s not about me, but ita€™s a song and I feel lighter.
Others who got early exposure that way included Dolly Parton, The Everly Brothers and Jim Nabors (TV's Gomer Pyle).
Betty Jean Lifton, a well-known adoption counselor and author, helped lead Diana to her family. Sonya saw the gospel choir and thought a€?It was the coolest thing ever,a€? so she asked her mother if she could take voice lessons with Evelyn. I eventually started writing more, then suddenly [the set] was mostly originals and then it was all originals.
Sometimes, her father, Peter Kitchell, a highly regarded abstract painter, would hold infant Sonya in a Snugli against his chest and play bongos along with Latin music. Ita€™s really important to me that my songs mean something to people and Ia€™m trying to write songs that are universal. She also met two women there who, as she found out later, were from the same town that her family had settled in. I had basic skills, understanding music, but I never considered myself a piano player.a€? That would change many years later.
As two or three years went by, I started to live all of those songs and understand them more deeply.
And when I met him, he made such sense to me, because he had been the person I had been missing in some way. Down to her last options, she says that she had a dream on a Monday night that she was in a post office and that a woman in the dream told her that her mother was from Tennessee. Sonya got a band together with older students she knew and thus, Sonyaa€™s performing career was launched. She followed that up and by the following Thursday, she was talking to her birth mother on the phone.
He always said, 'This family has never met a stranger.' People just lit up around him, because he made them feel so good about themselves.
I was born in June and my birthstone is pearl, so my grandmother had a pearl necklace for me and a rose. Most of the people there have maybe never played with a band before and I never played solo before. This was in February, but Thanksgiving was their biggest holiday of the year, my grandfather's favorite, so they threw Thanksgiving for me and invited the entire extended family. She made some demos, little records that weren't big releases, but it was great experience.
A  I learned something from every man I met or exchanged emails with, and Lou taught me a few words in Spanish.A  Ole!
