Diana Krall, the voice of Canadian jazz, was born in Nanaimo, on Vancouver Island, Canada, on November 16, 1964.
La Krall was born into a family of musicians, her parents played the piano and her grandmother was a jazz singer, she came to the world in Nanaimo but soon moved to Vancouver where he continued his musical training as part of the jazz group at his school and playing in some restaurants in the city; At that time Diana Krall was, more than anything, a pianist and she began to feel more and more attracted by the nuances that she managed to capture in her voice.
In 1981, thanks to his talent and as much as he had worked his voice and his music, he won a contest that allowed him to study for three years at the prestigious Berklee music school in Boston; He returned, after these three American years, to his hometown and there, the luck that awaits around the corner for those who do not give up, he smiled: I was playing one night of so many at a local restaurant and it turned out that among the diners was the admirable jazz musician, composer and bassist, Ray Brown, Ella Fitzgerald’s ex-husband; Brown, who was already a myth, approached her, introduced himself and proposed to be her representative, she accepted and their professional union lasted until 2004, the year in which Ray Brown passed away.
Undeniable success came to Diana Krall in the late 1990s and early 2000s. Until then he had lived between Los Angeles, Toronto and New York, but in 1999 he won his first platinum record and obtained his first Grammy; The 2000s arrived with great emotional moments, some very beautiful and others terrible: her mother died of cancer and she met Elvis Costelo with whom she will marry in 2003 and with whom she has two children. Although he recognizes that his children are his priority and his music his passion, he reconciles everything by taking his children with him on all his tours.
