Memphis pianist-vocalist Di Anne Price is the undisputed Queen of Barrelhouse, the living spirit of classic blues divas Ida Cox, Alberta Hunter, Stippie Wallace, and Memphis Minnie. A profoundly soulful singer, her expressive voice is etched with pain or brimming with sly humor while tickling the ivories barrel piano style on two-fisted shuffles, rolling blues, and boogie woogie workouts.

- Jazz Times

Di Anne’s stride piano balances jazz with ragtime and blues in a way that's so old-fashioned it's refreshingly new. Close your eyes, and it’s like stumbling into a 1940s barrelhouse.

- The Commercial Appeal

She has the kind of voice you turn to in the wee, small hours - dark and smoky like your favorite bar, warm and smooth as a glass of good bourbon. It's the voice of romance and desire, of loneliness and loss.

– Bill Ellis

Di Anne gets to the heart and meaning of a song that appeals to everyone. “When I play this music, sing these songs, I'm saying ‘share this story with me. I want real drums, real bass, and I want it to be my voice that people hear, not something created in a studio.”

Di Anne’s approach to music is shared with "Her Boyfriends" - drummer Tom Lonardo, saxophonist Jim Spake, and bassist Tim Goodwin. "Playing with them makes my back tingle. It's like making love," Di Anne says. "When we play, we're telling a story, and no matter where I start, they go with me."

- John Taylor – Blues On Stage


 

 

 
   
 
WHY DON’T YOU DO RIGHT

IF YOU’RE A VIPER

GOING DOWN SLOW

WAITIN’ AND DRINKIN’

A GOOD MAN IS HARD TO FIND

AT THE CLUB

JUST FOR A THRILL

SHE'S NO LADY, SHE'S YOUR WIFE

MY MAN STANDS OUT

BLUES HAVE BEEN GOOD TO ME

I’M NOT DRUNK, I’M JUST DRINKIN’

THE SOUL OF A MAN

TONIGHT’S THE NIGHT

BLACK CAT BLUES

I’M JUST A LUCKY SO AND SO
