From Mtv.com, singer Diana De Garmo speaks about her first forthcoming album:
Thing are rolling for DeGarmo offstage as well. On off-nights of the tour, she’s been flying to New York, Los Angeles and Atlanta to record songs for her debut album. So far, she’s worked with producer/songwriters Andreas Carlsson (Britney Spears, Clay Aiken), John Shanks (Hilary Duff, Michelle Branch) and David Foster, whose credits include Whitney Houston’s rendition of “I Will Always Love You” and Toni Braxton’s “Un-break My Heart.”
“[Our collaboration] is one of the first songs he’s written in years, so I’m proud to say that it’s mine,” DeGarmo said of Foster.
Like her own music collection, DeGarmo’s album will be quite diverse. “I love all genres of music,” she said. “I think it helps you become a better performer if you know the different types of music. [On my album] you got the few Celine Dion kind of songs, big-money-note songs, but we also have songs that I want to put on the radio for people my age to listen to, something that if I were in the car, I’d be like, ‘All right!’ “
Japanese label WestWood Records has released the 1982 album “I’m your girlfriend” by Dara Sedaka. The album, never released on cd before, was produced and played by David Foster with great musicians Michael Landau, Steve Lukather, Jerry Hey and Steve George and Richard Page on backing vocals.
