Diana Krall Biography

Diana Jean Krall was born on 16th November 1964, in Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada, and is a jazz singer and pianist, probably best known for her contralto vocals. Moreover, she is established as one of the best-selling artists of her time and the only jazz singer whose eight albums debuted at the top of the “Billboard Jazz Albums”. In addition to this, she is known for winning Grammy, Juno, and many other awards. Her career has been active since 1993.

So, have you ever wondered how rich Diana Krall is, as of late 2016? According to authoritative sources, it has been estimated that the total size of Diana’s net worth is over $18 million, mostly the result of her successful career in the music industry as both a jazz singer and a pianist.

Diana Krall Net Worth $18 Million

Diana Krall was born to Adella A., who worked as an elementary school teacher, and Stephen James Krall, who was an accountant. As she was growing up, she was constantly exposed to the sound of piano and jazz as her father was a stride piano player with an extensive record collection. She began taking classical piano lessons when she was just four years old, but was insecure about her voice so she didn’t want to sing for a long time. However, she was interested in listening to and playing music throughout her childhood, but her parents never wanted her to have a musical career instead of going to university. By the age of 15, she was playing piano in the local bars and restaurants, but singing as little as possible. When she turned 17, Diana won a scholarship for the Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts; upon finishing college, she returned to her hometown.

However, her big break came a little later, in 1983 when she attended a jazz camp in Port Townsend, Washington, where she met a famous drummer Jeff Hamilton, a member of influential jazz quartet “L.A.4” and jazz bassist Ray Brown. They spotted her talent and potential, and persuaded her parents to let her pursue a career in music. After that she moved to Toronto and then to New York, where she started performing with a trio and singing.

Although her debut album entitled “Stepping Out” was popular, her breakthrough was “All For You”, a Nat King Cole tribute album which was released in 1996. Her 1999 album “When I Look In Your Eyes” was so popular that it sat on top of the charts for more than a year and became an international best-seller, earning Krall her first Grammy Award for best jazz vocal performance. Her 2004album “The Girl In The Other Room” rose to the top five in both the UK and Australia. Barbra Streisand’s album “Love Is The Answer” was produced by Krall in 2009, and in 2012 Krall performed at astronaut Neil Armstrong’s memorial service in Washington, D.C. – “Fly Me To The Moon”. All of these projects added a considerable amount to her net worth.

Furthermore, Diana has been a guest singer on albums of many influential jazz performers and at many important manifestations, increasing further her net worth. Her talent is seen and appreciated, so she has won a great number of memorable awards such as, among others, the Order of British Columbia, an honorary Ph.D. from the University of Victoria, made an Officer of the Order of Canada, and been awarded a star on Canada’s Walk of Fame, among others.

Regarding her personal life, Diana Krall has been married to British musician Elvis Costello since 2003 and they have twins. Their current residence is in New York City.

Quotes

#Quote
1[on her version of 'I've Got You Under My Skin'] I slowed it down and made it into a boss a nova. I find it made the song really sad. That's kind of what I do. Take something really happy and make it miserable in the best way.
2You want the audience to feel as good as you do. I want everyone with me, not away from me. My job is to make everybody feel something: feel good or feel a groove, feel a ballad and sadness or else feel elation. It's not them watching you tell them about your emotional journey. You're trying to help them find theirs. I'm the one to take them to that place.
3I know from the first bars how the night will go. It's like a dinner party. You know how sometimes you throw seven people at a table and they can't find common ground. And other times, people sit down immediately and it's like they've known each other for a million years? That's how it feels when it's good.
4[on her 2013 North American tour] The new show is vaudeville theatre. I've played a lot of vaudeville theaters in my day, a lot of gin joints, and I love that feeling. I like the feeling that the band is in a film, like some distant memory of the silver screen. I like the idea that concert begins, and it's like putting needle to wax. The music doesn't need the visuals, the music's strong enough on it's own, but this is something I've been cooking up my whole life.
5We all want to be astronauts or rock stars when we grow up, right? I mean, I always wanted to be an astronaut. My Confirmation day was spent building a rocket. I built it out of the kit and read 'Carrying the Fire'. I had a chance to meet Neil Armstrong and his family on the fortieth anniversary of the moon landing.
6I was looking at all the pictures of the Ziegfeld Follies and [thinking about] how a lot of those girls perished, really. That's why I didn't want to do this kind of flapper, get-your-ukelele-thing, because there's a darkness to it, a tragic element.
7[on her family] They were really poor - they're coal miners - but they had a piano, so everybody played and I think my dad started taking some of the collection money on the way to church and buying 78s. That music was what they listened to, and people came over because they couldn't afford to go out. Everyone came to their house and brought bottles - whatever they had. I have tapes of it too, recordings of all of us singing together.
8[on Tony Bennett] We have continual arguments about whether rock 'n' roll swings, which of course it absolutely does. I have a different view of the Great American Songbook than Tony. It has Willie Dixon and Hank Williams in it. But I totally respect that for Tonty it begins and ends when it does. Depending on where you started from, certain kinds of music must seem horrifying.
9I love everything about her: her elegance, her wit. And she is one of the greatest influences in what I do as an artist. (on her idol Peggy Lee)
