Biography

Sweet Diezel , is an award winning duo from Niagara Falls, Canada.
It's members are, Angela Siracusa & Sarah Boulton.
Siracusa met Boulton in 2009 at an open mic and have since shared many stages together.

In March of 2011, Siracusa invited Boulton to join vocal forces.
Sweet Diezel delivers powerhouse vocals and killer harmonies. Always thinking about the song, Sweet Diezel collaborates with many other artists to add to their current show.

Angela Siracusa, award winning Nashville recording artist; originally from Toronto, divides her time between
St. Catharines and Nashville. For several months of the year, Siracusa performs and records in the music city. Nashville is a place she calls home and the inspiration for many of her songs.

Angela was chosen as the feature community artist on CMT.com and has performed to many audiences across the nation. Often seen performing in Nashville on the famed Billy Block Show and has appeared on shows with Sammy Kershaw, Raul Malo, Hal Ketchum, Marty Raybon, David Church, Walter Egon, Walter Ostanek, and The Roadhammers.

Angela is also a featured music columnist for the well respected French magazine Dreamwest. At a pre-Grammy party in Nashville, Angela spent time with the country music’s elite from Brenda Lee, Little Big Town, and Trace Atkins to five-time Grammy Award winner (including 2009) and one of Angela’s idols, Robert Plant.

With four albums to boast since 2006, Siracusa is never satisfied and keeps writing and releasing new projects. A lover of melodies, Siracusa's goal is to release an EP with Boulton to showcase their vocal synergy and songwriting style and make it become part of the Sweet Diezel sound that Siracusa has envisioned for years. "It's all coming together and with a few more tweaks we'll be well on our way to creating songs that are sure to draw them in. Sweet Diezel is working along the lines of country with a blues style, strong driving beats and three part harmonies."
Angela says, “I want it all: I simply want to entertain people and share my talents with those that will have them. I love songwriting, performing and collaborating: it’s what get's me up every morning. Working with Sarah is great. We gel and I love the way our voices sound together. That's really important for me. We don't know what the future holds but we do know it involves writing, performing and traveling!"

Sarah Boulton, award winning, singer songwriter hailing from Port Colbourne Ontario is passionate about music and has been her whole life. Boulton is a natural vocalist; she also trained classically for 9 years. She is a self taught guitar player and piano player. Local vocal talent contests have chosen Sarah for 1st place, winning for three consecutive years! Other competitions recognize Boulton for her talents including the Rising Star competition held at the CNE in Toronto. In addition she is a Niagara Music Awards nominee. In 2009, Sarah formed an original band called “Mourn the Divine” with, Priestan Ti. Mourn the Divine was voted 5th in all of Canada. Sarah’s performances include: the Ice Wine Festival in Jordan, Organized Crime Winery in Beamsville, Canal Days in Port Colborne, and, as an opening act, on the Illuminaqua stage in Welland. Sarah recently recorded her own arrangement of Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah and has been in studio recording some of her original songs. Sarah is looking forward to a bright future with her music.

In 2010 Angela released the self titled album; Sweet Diezel. The 9 song album was recorded in Nashville & Ontario. The collaborative project of original songs is delivered with a traditional and modern country flair. Sultry and haunting powerful vocals evoke thoughts of love lost, love found; with upbeat melodies that celebrate family love and good times with friends. Sweet Diezel as a vocal duo blends many of the same elements that made Siracusa's album Drawn to the Flame successful. Sweet Diezel has been recognized by Billboard’s songwriting contest for Siracusa's original song, “They Crumble”.

Their recent collaboration with Chris Goossen and Timothy Kulakowsky is shaping up to be an interesting project that may become the new sound of Sweet Diezel! More to come....

Train Rides

Written By: Angela Siracusa/MaryLynne Stella

Train Rides Copyright Angela Siracusa /MaryLynne Stella

It’s late I’m tired
This coffee's gettin' me wired
Read a book or two
But I’d rather be home with you
Heard the whistle Blow
Got my second wind don’t you know
Twenty Miles n’ gunnin’ it
I could taste the sweet tea on your lips

Chorus

Are you squeezin lemons n’ crushing ice my dear
Feels like a million miles left to go
Something bout’ train rides
Makes me sad, you know
Just a few more miles till we swing together
On the front porch

Pullin’ up the drive
Sun tucked in, n’settin’ right
You said you’d be home soon
I was waiting babe, by the rising of the moon
You didn’t come home
Sirens echoed in the valley below
Why did you leave me like this
Hangin’ on your words and your final kiss

Chorus

Now I'm squeezin lemons n’ crushing ice my dear
Feels like a million miles left to go
Something bout’ train rides
Makes me sad, you know
Just a few more years till we swing together
On the front porch

Bridge

I never knew I’d be so lonely
With you always by my side
Every mornin’ when I wake up
Another Dream to survive
When you come to me, you’re still alive

They Crumble

Produced by: Angela Siracusa/Dean Malton

When darkness falls down avenues
And the sun has long since gone
She seeks the arms of someone new
To hold her till the dawn

The lonlieness in her face
Covered carefully
With a touch a kiss a warm embrace
Week n' helplessly

Chorus:
Her heart is beating she's given in
For another lovers tumble
Not once not twice she let them in
And one by one they crumble
Oh Oh they crumble

She'll meet a man, she's known for years
He'll hold her tenderly
And when he does she'll reminisce
Bout' how it used to be

Like a lovers waltz danced real slow
Having all, wanting more
She hopes her man will never know
When she's creeping out the door

Chorus 2X

Outro
It used to be so good you know

Half a Sun

I see he's wearin' that same old shirt,
Now I could have Swore I threw it away
I like to tease him, n' he likes to flirt
Gotta keep em' guessing...it's just my way

Pre chorus
It comes to mind, I might leave him
He's mine to love, my sweetest thing

Chorus
He carved his name into my heart
I let him mend the broken part
Now there's good in every day
There's only half a sun
When he's gone away

He makes me laugh so hard, I cry
He's the sweet in my low thats true
When pleasing my man I feel so alive
Do what I say, I always do

Pre chorus
From time to time, I think I might leave him
But he's mine to love, my sweetest thing

Chorus 1x

Bridge
In a thousand miles I've noticed
Theres's no distance between us
Were far from fear when we're closest
I'll keep on waiting because

Chorus
I carved my name into his heart
I let him mend the broken part
Now there's good in everyday
But there's only half a sun
When he's gone away
There's only half a sun
When he's away

I'm gonna tell you something
Change ain't worth a dime
It's time I get to leaving
Out of sight, out of mind

Pre Chorus:
Your half not here, can you even tell
I've done my time, in a wishing well

Chorus
So Just...
Write me a letter don't come my way
Ya I'll come visit on New Years Day
Give it time, n' I think I'll pass
Movin' onward, upward n' fast

The soul that you've been hurting
Is the one leavin' you behind
N' all your days n' nights of flirting
You were ungrateful and unkind

Pre Chorus:
I'm half not here, can you even tell
Now it's you time, in the wishing well

Bridge
I'm going now, my train is rolling
Dried up tears ain't worth a cent
Your begging is not very pleasing
It's too late, I'm already spent

Chorus 1x

Outro
Upward and Fast
Upward and Fast
I'm movin' onward upward and fast
I'm movin onward upward and fast
I'm movin onward upward and fast

A Little Heaven

(This song is a dedication to the Niagara Falls Region)

This here's a gambling town
Losing hands stay underground 
Drive thrus that'll change your name

Late runners hit the streets
Counting bills, pink hotel suites
Wild cards play the guessing game 

Chorus
Oh ya
Having fun just messin' around
Bright lights n' changing sounds
wanna live by
just be nearby
a little heaven 

Come on down to the open road
Winning more than the mother-load
Pawn shops are for the extra mile

now some try to say goodbye
but nothin's better than feeling high 
When you stare down a barrel
you find the meaning why

Bridge
Slippin in and out of luck
Slippin in and out of luck
Slippin in and out of luck

Chorus 1X

Take Me Higher

Will you be my old friend
Or goodbye till we meet again
Clap it out make it dark
You know I'll play the scary part
For you, I'm only for you

Chorus:
Say it like you love me
And show the way
Say you wanna be here
Start a new phase
Change my life
What a thrill
Take me higher

Times change, let’s rearrange
It matters how we play this game
Just for two, I'm no fool
Have no fear, the only rule
For you, I'm only for you

Chorus: 1x

Bridge:
Free advice, so how have you been
Giving up or giving in?
Smile once help chase away
Heavy thoughts on those heavy days

I wanna be your desire, take me higher

THE OTHER SIDE OF ME

Standing at  the start
You're just one drink away
From losing your senses
And killing the pain

A heart is drunk with love
And this ones soaked  in hate
If I close my eyes
The storm may someday wain

Pre Chorus:
Its the bed you've made
Sure as you breathe
Can't keep me waiting
... Keep me holdin' on

Chorus:
The other side of me
Simple as it seems
Is a drownin' day
You don't wanna show
Sinking in the shadows
Not hard to see
You're on the other side of me

You're empty like the bottle
With every wasted day
Hallowed out on the inside
Swallowed up in vain

Search within the heart
Chip away the pride
Standing at the start
I should have walked away

Pre Chorus:1x
Chorus: 1x
Bridge: 1x

You get stronger
with every step I take
through every move I make
there's no more wasting time
cause I got to find

Chorus 1x

Breathless

BREATHLESS

It's half past eight, I'm fifteen late
Could be karma, could be fate
I'm not, gonna be that girl

I'd like to think, we'll be okay
if your about minutes, n' waisted days
well I'm not, gonna be that girl

Pre-chorus:
Tonight I'm yours
All yours
Don't loose me now

Chorus:
Can't you see I'm breathless, over you;
You'll be waiting for me
like you'll always do
you won't close the door
when you see I'm tryin'
Where will we go? YA

If lovers sleep, then cuddle me
oh no drama, then you’ll like me
cause oh I'm not, gonna be that girl

I could play your Queen, no in between
You want a pin up girl, from a magazine
I'm not, gonna be that girl

Pre-chorus:
Tonight I'm yours
All yours
Don't loose me now

Chorus: 1x

Break over Verse progression 4 bars

If I get there on time
Can I call you mine

Tonight I'm yours
All yours
Don't loose me now
