Akustik Gitarre Magazine, Germany:
" What would occur if one tried to find an appropriate stylistic "drawer" for Diane Ponzio? Certainly one would pull out "folk" as the first drawer. But then a drawer for jazz would have to immediately follow. And then for Chanson and Blues. At some point, this type of thinking would have to be given up because Diane makes, if one, after all must try to categorize it, popular music in the best sense-that is, in an intelligent manner and on a high musical level."
Lydia Hutchinson, Editor, The Performing Songwriter magazine:
" Diane Ponzio is a first-class writer and musician, and one of the most entertaining performers around. She's the real deal."
George Wurzbach, National Projects Director, Songwriters Guild of America:
" It's remarkable how Diane's songs take you someplace. They scoop you up, excite emotion, lay you back down, and you're grateful for the journey."
C.F. Martin IV, CEO, Martin Guitar Company:
" Every time she plays, I can't help but feel she's playing just for me. Then I look around the audience, and it seems as if everyone else feels the same way."
Bob McNally - inventor of the Martin Backpacker, and the McNally Strumstick:
"Diane has an acute talent for capturing human emotions, situations and predicaments in music. Her songs marry rhythmic grooves, sophisticated chord progressions and lyrics that catch both heart and mind. Her singing is powerful emotionally - she sings about what she cares about, and she cares about a lot! She is truly a songwriter's songwriter and a captivating entertainer. I heartily recommend her as a top notch performer and world citizen."
Patty Reitkopf, Director of Healing Arts Initiative:
"With more than 30 years of experience directing arts access programs I have met and hired many artists... Diane Ponzio stands above and beyond in not only delivering as an exceptional triple threat talent - guitarist, composer, and lyricist, but with an innate ability to deliver her music with a personal passion and joy that enhances the power of her performance, her music, and the connection to her audience."
Stewart Lerman, Grammy award winning producer:
"Diane is one the most gifted singer songwriters I know…..with a honey soaked voice to boot! A writer who writes from the heart. A magical combination”
Woody Mann, guitarist and songwriter:
"Diane is an original voice in the music world. She captures audiences with her honesty and mastery of telling powerful stories through her songs. A dynamic and exciting performer, Diane is one of today's most creative songwriters with a vocal and guitar style all her own... don't miss a chance to hear her!"
