Widely acclaimed US singer-songwriter DIANA JONES has announced the re-issue of her critically lauded 2009 album Better Times Will Come – Reimagined & Remastered on April 7, to mark the 15th anniversary of its recording.

Diana enlisted studio engineer Steve Addabbo, fresh from his work on Bob Dylan’s Bootleg Series, to help her cast a retrospective eye over the tracks. Together they reimagined the mixes and the running order and added a previously unreleased song ‘Call Me Daddy’, to reflect changes she has envisaged since the original release.

The new version of the title track “Better Times Will Come”, featuring harmony vocals by Diana’s friend the late Nanci Griffith and a newly found additional chorus, is out now. Its abiding message remains so timely, given the hardships of recent years and those still being felt today.

Hailed variously in the press as the “Emily Dickinson of song,” “The lost daughter of the Carter Family” as well as a "Hillbilly Feminist", Diana will embark on the Better Times Will Come – Reimag-ined & Remastered

 

Biography...

Adopted as an infant and raised in Long Island, NY, the fact that Diana Jones couldn’t get enough of her brother’s Johnny Cash records finally made sense when she found her birth family and musical roots in the Smoky Mountains of Eastern Tennessee “Whenever I heard anyone country…. like Johnny Cash or Dolly Parton, I wanted more but I just didn’t know where to find it.” Diana’s maternal grandfather, who had formed his first teenage band with a young Chet Atkins, was happy to pass on the culture and music that he loved to his granddaughter. Gradually Jones discovered an uncanny affinity for the Appalachian music of her ancestors and began claiming it as her own combining traditional mountain and old-time sounds with a literate, character-driven brand of storytelling that has become both her life’s work and the essence of her live show.
