Diana is a German-Latvian singer-songwriter, artist and musician based in Berlin. Although both of her parents were engineers, Diana had a musically rich upbringing. Beginning classical piano at the age of 5, however, to balance the pressure of competitions, and of her parents’ high expectations of her, she ventured toward singing on stage. A few competitions and open mics later, Goldberg began to develop skills in freestyling, noticing how quickly she was able to come up with song ideas and hooks.
Diana’s debut EP ‘Blossom In The Dark’ garnered editorial placements at Spotify, Amazon Music, Tidal and Apple Music, a nomination as ‘Band of the year’ by Süddeutsche Zeitung and live performances at Reeperbahn-Festival, Superbloom Festival, Dubai Expo 2020 and support band of Alice Merton and JC Stewart among other major feats.
Through her lyrical and sonic DIY-storytelling, Diana dares listeners to be as bold and unapologetic as she is, urging them to let go of any expectations others might have of them, citing her own upbringing and inner desire to shy away from societal and cultural norms, choosing instead to listen to her inner voice, as motivation. The result is one that exudes an alt-pop, neo-soul sound with experimentation and unpredictability at the forefront.
‘Alleviate’ is the first of a string of releases for Diana in 2024, watch this space.
