“It is a privilege and honor to perform on Steinway pianos.”
Singer/pianist Diana Krall got her musical education when she was growing up in Nanaimo, British Columbia, from the classical piano lessons she began at age four and in her high school jazz band. Her inspiration however came from her father, a stride piano player with an extensive record collection. "I think Dad has every recording Fats Waller ever made," she said, "and I tried to learn them all."
By 1990, she was based in New York, performing with a trio and singing, as well as recording several albums, including the Nat “King” Cole tribute All for You. With her pre-bop piano style, cool but sensual singing, and fortuitously photogenic looks, Diana Krall took the jazz world by storm in the late '90s with her album When I Look in Your Eyes — an international best-seller and earned her a Grammy for Best Jazz Vocal Performance. It also was the first jazz album to be nominated for Album of the Year in twenty-five years.
Krall continued recording after the turn of the twenty first century, releasing several successful albums featuring music from different genres, including the bossa nova-themed Quiet Nights, ragtime and early jazz covers on Glad Rag Doll, and pop selections from the sixties onward on Wallflower.
Krall has been a Steinway Artist since 1997.
