Diane Garisto grew up immersed in the musical soul of New York City. She sang on her first recording at the age of eight, and went on to record with Billy Joel, Nile Rodgers, George Benson, Carly Simon, Laurie Anderson and Malcolm McLaren. She provided background vocals for Paul Simon on his Grammy-winning Graceland and toured internationally as a member of Steely Dan. But her career peak came in the mid-nineties when she became a member of Laura Nyro’s celebrated Harmony Group. As one of Nyro’s famed backing trio, Diane toured the world and sang on the albums Live: The Loom’s Desire, and Live In Japan. “Performing these songs today with a band of New York’s top musicians and singers is my way of keeping Laura’s spirit vibrant and alive,” says Garisto. “For us and for her fans, Stoned Soul Picnic is a celebration of the art and soul of Laura Nyro.”
