Audio Filé: An Interview with Kristin Diable



New Orleans singer-songwriter Kristin Diable talks to Aura Fedora about the release of her new album with her trio The City. Once again, there's two ways to take in this interview: reading and listening.


Kristin Diable Offers Free Stream, Plots Record Release


We're used to seeing Kristin Diable on Frenchmen, and making NoDef playlists. But with her new CD, Kristin Diable and the City coming out, the blues-inflected singer-songwriter is getting ready to head around the country to New York, DC and Atlanta. Before she does, she'll be celebrating the new record at d.b.a. Sunday night at 10 p.m. with some friends, neighbors and hometown fans. And before she even does that, we can all listen to the new record here.
