Diana Salvatore

Diana’s sound and style could be described as “Mafiosa Motown”. Watching her perform, one could easily imagine Ms. Salvatore entertaining the rat pack at the Cal/Neva Lodge.

Like a teenaged Marilyn, Diana ran away to the bright lights of Hollywood to chase her destiny as a star. Guided by her undeniable talent and drive, she landed roles in several television series, including MTV’s teen drama Valemont, and the American adaptation of UK smash hit SKINS. Diana then made her feature film debut in The Killing Moon and was later cast alongside Jennifer Lopez and Richard Gere to play the role of Tina in the Miramax film Shall We Dance.

With her retro sound, and soulful voice beyond her years, Diana was the winner of the BMG/Uomo Music Search. Her first single ‘Baby So What’ was featured on the VIK/BMG artist compilation CD Planet Pop alongside musical heavyweights Destiny’s Child, Britney Spears and N’sync. Diana even got the chance to perform with some of her idols from the golden soul days when she played along side the Box Tops and opened for the Temptations at the Hershey Center. Later that year she was asked to perform for Bill Clinton at the Nelson Mandela tribute.

In 2011/12, you may already have had a taste from Diana’s upcoming debut album. The provocative track “Dollar in My Jukeboxxx” has been featured in the Chevy Sonic TV commercial, playing in heavy rotation. As the first single off of the album, this song clearly illustrates her “Betty Boop Bionic” persona.
