12 track album
Diana Chittester’s new studio album Find My Way Home perfectly captures the magic of her live performance. It sounds exactly as it should, from the most halcyonic lull to the most harrowing crescendo. Diana is a huntress, a lioness, a force of nature; as gifted a storyteller and personal confessor as she is a goddess of the guitar. Find My Way Home leaves no doubt that this talented singer-songwriter is poised to take progressive folk to heights yet unseen.
The album will be The No Surf Review’s September #FeaturedReview right after Diana’s August 29 release show at The Beachland Ballroom and Tavern. But don’t wait, download it today!

#HappyBirthday #NoSurfFriend Alice Wallace! Alice is here on the North Coast playing a series of shows this week, but she had Friday off so we headed down to check out Kent Blues Fest. Before the music, we grabbed a bite down by the Cuyahoga River and I got this great picture of her from the spot where Joe Walsh and The James Gang - Band took the cover photo for Yer Album. Hope they’re proud that such an amazing talent is paying them tribute!
