“Her interpretations were precisely right for a program that moved easily from whimsical tunes to standards and bossa novas.”

  • Don Heckman, LOS ANGELES TIMES

“As eclectically entertaining a collection of non-standard material  as one could wish for.”

  • Will Friedwald, THE VILLAGE VOICE

Whether heading an ensemble of world class musicians, or accompanying herself on 7-string guitar, Diane Hubka gets straight to the heart of a song with “delightful crystal clear vocals and a jazz-attitude presentation.” (LA JAZZ SCENE) She is “one of the indisputable divas of jazz & bossa nova vocal. Simply Superb.” (Joao da Penha, JAZZ AND BOSSA NOVA RADIO)

With six internationally acclaimed CDs, she has headlined throughout the US as well as Turkey and Japan.  Sponsored by The Sinatra Society of Japan, she appeared in Tokyo, Osaka and Yokohama, where she “dazzled the Japanese audiences with her intelligent improvisations… and energy.” (EASTWIND IMPORT) Her “I Like It Here/Live in Tokyo” received a nomination for the prestigious Jazz Disc award by Japan’s SWING JOURNAL.

The award-winning vocalist was a vital member of the New York and Washington D.C. jazz scenes for over two decades before relocating to Los Angeles in 2005. She has headlined at Blue Note, Birdland and Knitting Factory. Working and studying with such jazz luminaries as Lee Konitz, Bucky Pizzarelli, Harold Danko, Sheila Jordan and Howard Alden, Diane continued to hone her skills as both a vocalist and guitarist, appearing in jazz venues throughout the Eastern United States.

In 2005 she relocated to Los Angeles, where she quickly became one of the top performers in Southern California’s jazz scene, playing in such iconic venues as the Jazz Bakery, Vitello’s and Charlie O’s and recording with Anthony Wilson, Joe La Barbera, Christian Jacob and Peter Sprague.

Whether as an engaging song stylist or gifted guitarist, Diane has “made her way into a  select group of jazz vocalists/instrumentalists where she rightly assumes a place of honor” ALL ABOUT JAZZ
