Wish I Was In Dixie

JON RONIGER is truly a unique slice of American songwriting, blending New Orleans style jazz & blues with folk story telling. Touring internationally since 2003, his record “Charmed Life” saw regular spins on BBC, BBC Whales and BBC Scotland and National broadcast Radio Amsterdam. His 2010 release “Someone Else” and the 2007 release “Charmed Life” have placements on HGTV, Platinum Babies and the theme song for a UK based company Bedford for Beds. Roniger’s song “Redneck Riviera” has been licensed for a full length feature film called “Island of Fantasy”. His 2012 release “NOLA Rolls” showcases the timeless quality of a seasoned songwriter and the unique musical style that only a New Orleans native could produce. Recently selected for The 2011, ‘12 and ‘13 French Quarter Festival, The 2011, ‘12 and ‘13 Key West Songwriters Festival and the highly acclaimed 2013 Wednesday at The Square in New Orleans, Roniger has played such renowned venues as Nashville’s Blue Bird Cafe, Atlanta’s Eddie’s Attic, San Francisco’s Great American Music Hall, Colorado’s Boulder Theatre and New Orleans’ House of Blues.

KRISTIN DIABLE’s voice is a formidable instrument, Dusty Springfield sass couched in Norah Jones seduction. On the crisply produced “Kristin Diable & the City,” she deploys that voice on a set of poised, mature, original Americana compositions. She and her fluent, simpatico band, the City, tease out slow-burn, sensual, ruminations on love, loss and desire. One of the city’s stars-in-waiting. The Times Picayune, listed “Kristin Diable & The City” as one of the best of 2012 record (right next to Dr. John!). The record is also nominated for an Offbeat Magazine “Best of the Beat” Award for best Folk/Country/Songwriter Album
