Diane Durrett's new CD Blame It on My DNA gives listeners another reason to celebrate her insightful and sometimes humorous soulful music. From the bluesy title track, "Blame It on My DNA" to the funky “Cook It Up” to the sexy R&B "In Between Times." Blame It on My DNA will take you from laughing and dancing to loving.

Durrett’s CD includes guest star appearances by drummer Bernard Purdie (Chain, Chain, Chain), jazz trumpeter Joey Somerville and guitarists Oliver Wood (The Wood Brothers) and Mark Johnson (Delta Moon). Former STAX records William Bell (Born Under a Bad Sign) adds his classic soul influence on “Better Off Than On” co-written with Durrett.

Durrett has sung with or opened for Sting, Tina Turner, Delbert McClinton, The Indigo Girls, Faith Hill, Patty Loveless, and Derek Trucks. A career highlight, as described in the opening of her newly released book, Driving Music City, was a 1994 duet with Gregg Allman of the song “Stormy Monday” at Center Stage in Atlanta.

Durrett has long reflected on the musical passions that inspired her while growing up in Atlanta, GA. From her energy-driven breakthrough debut 50,000 Volts of Soul (1993) to her superbly executed Rhythm of Life (1998) to her acoustically-driven CHILL (2004), to her live CD, Georgia on the Groove (2007).

Her song catalog includes co-writes with the likes of Bonnie Bramlett (Superstar), Jerry Ragovoy (Piece of My Heart), Emily Sailers (Gallileo), Kristen Hall (Baby Girl) and Georgia Music Hall of Famer William Bell. In 2004 the American Cancer Society selected the song “Whatever Makes Your Soul Sing,” co-written with Jayne Olderman, as the theme of a nationally distributed DVD. In 2006 “What if Everybody Wins” was featured in the soundtrack for the film The Unseen which has been televised on the BRAVO network and distributed by Blockbuster. With her 2009 release of Blame It on My DNA Durrett continues her musical expedition towards defining her soulful voice and creating colorful songs.
