Diana van der Bent

This album is dedicated to the great artists of the French poetic chanson. ‘Tout finit par des chansons’ is the title of this album. It is a saying, stemming from the very last line of Pierre Beaumarchais’ play Le mariage de Figaro, meaning: ‘everything ends with a song’, and this is what we will do. 

Producer Brendon Heinst: "Out of the whole microphone arsenal of our studio, we armed ourselves with nothing but two Brauner tube microphones for the guitars and vocals, to get this smooth, velvety sound of yesteryear, but with the quality of modern equipment. But enough about the gear, it’s all about music! I hope you will enjoy the album as much as I did recording it. For a brief moment in time during the recording, I was transported to Post-War Paris, enjoying a nice espresso, hearing Diana sing these beautiful songs about love, life, and loss. And isn’t that just all any producer wants in life?"

Diana van der Bent

Diana is a singer from the Netherlands with a love for musical diversity and a passion for the human voice. She graduated at the conservatory of Utrecht in 2012 in the direction of jazz & pop, but also received extensive classical training during that period. In 2015 she released her debut album containing duets with double bass player Harry Emmery. Over the years Diana has also launched several theatrical music programs like ‘Peggy & Nina’ about the lives and music of Peggy Lee and Nina Simone, and the award winning ‘Van Ramses tot Rossini, een radeloos recital’. In her latest project ‘Tout finit par des chansons’, she has teamed up with guitarist Paul den Bakker to explore the world of French poetic chanson; music that emerged in- and around Saint-Germain-des-Prés (Paris) after World War II.
