Biography

Jonny Diina is a consummate vocalist, prolific songwriter and gifted musician. He believes that everything in music should be dynamically rooted from the lyrics of a song. An old soul for these uncertain times, Jonny Diina is an antidote for the sugarcoated pabulum that seems to fill the airwaves. His music transcends, engages and delights.

Jonny's influences are as vast as his rich musical background. They include greats like Ella Fitzgerald and Frank Sinatra, Chris Cornell, Andrea Bocelli, Radiohead and Jeff Buckley. A native of Buffalo, NY, there was never a time when music was not part of Jonny's life. His mother is a classical pianist; his father a professional jazz musician; and his grandfather played bass in the U.S. Army Band with Sammy Davis Jr. Jonny began voice lessons at the age of 8. Soon after, he joined his father at local venues performing timeless jazz classics.

In 2003, with little more than a guitar and his ambition Jonny made his way to San Francisco where his distinct vocals quickly earned him recognition and regular acoustic performances. Jonny Diina has kicked off 2008 with a new EP, Prelude, featuring the crowd favorite "Will I Fail You." Reminiscent of Jonny's live performance, Prelude captures his break loose vocals and bittersweet lyrics in songs that are drenched with raw emotion.

With a solid West Coast Regional Following-Radio Play and successful shows including but not limited to the Bay Area (San Francisco, San Jose, Fresno) Desert Area (Reno, Palms, Las Vegas) Los Angeles (Hollywood, Long Beach, Orange County) and Southern California (San Diego, Oceanside)- Jonny Diina has made his career as much of a priority as his music. Together, they can't miss.

Lyrics

The Moon Will Kiss The Innocent Goodnight

Written By: Jonny Diina

Dancing falling gorgeous rain,
hurry back where have you been I miss you.

I can feel your mood changing when you fall it starts to sting I miss you.

The sun shapes and changes all life, how ‘bout you? How ‘bout you? The moon will kiss the innocent goodnight how ‘bout you? Maybe you?

Soaring floating ominously my eyes they bleed I cry to see I miss you.

Swerving coughing mechanical beast, you stole my friend she’s gone forever I miss her.

Love and Truth

Written By: Jonny Diina

Times I’ve said, I needed you. Times you’ve said you needed me, I would like to offer you the world, you can take it you already gave me yours.

Without you, who would I be in the dark you’ve seen me through, and it’s you, who lights the way to my endless quest for truth, and it’s you who lights the way to my endless quest for truth.

Will I Fail You

Written By: Jonny Diina / Cole Armstrong

I turn away and then you steal all my life, the moments pass and I can’t feel what’s inside that makes me real,

and I failed you and I failed you.

The sun rises it burns my skin, it reminds me of where I’ve been and I hope that it’s the day, I can start all over again

and not fail you ‘cause I failed you, and not fail you ‘cause I failed you.

Temptations arise and lead to every sin, in my life. Is this a battle for me to win, or will I? Will I fail you? Will I fail you?

Dog On A Lead

Written By: Jonny Diina

Tell me and I’ll be there any place I’m for free, far from perfect troubled will you take me for me?

anytime I question if I want to live or die, I always remember my truth has been afflicted from outside.

And I always always try, to inch closer to the answer why, does it take forever to grow to become what I already know.

Loyal as a puppy trained without a leash, scrambling through his synapses for the long lost memories.

anytime I question if I want to live or die I always remember my truth has been afflicted from outside.

And I always always try, to inch closer to the answer why, does it take forever to grow to become what I already know.

And I will calmly learn to close my eyes and interpret the signs. No one will shake the stillness that I obtained and take what’s rightfully mine.

And I always always try, to inch closer to the answer why, does it take forever to grow to become what I already know.
