Origin: United States
The talent of Grammy Award-winning songstress Diane Schuur was hinted at early on: She learned to sing jazz standard What a Difference a Day Makes while still a toddler, taught herself piano soon after and gave her first public performance at age 10. In 1984, Schuur released her debut, Deedles, which takes its title from her childhood nickname, after the singer was discovered by venerable saxophonist Stan Getz at the Monterey Jazz Festival and subsequently invited to perform at the White House. In 2008, she returned to her roots with Some Other Time, a collection of jazz standards that first sparked Schuur's love of music.
