Like Laura Nyro, Diane Garisto grew up immersed in the musical soul of New York City.

Diane 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, Donald Fagan, Malcolm McLaren, and Paul Simon on his Grammy-winning Graceland. From the mid-‘90s, she toured internationally with Steely Dan. But her most meaningful musical experience came when she became a member of Laura Nyro's celebrated Harmony Group. As one of Nyro's backing trio, Diane toured the world with Laura 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 (Larry Saltzman, Elise Morris, Andy Huenerberg, Sam Bryant) and singers (Janie Barnett, Emily Bindiger, Carolee Goodgold) is my way of keeping Laura’s flame burning bright,” Diane says. “For us and for her fans, Stoned Soul Picnic: The Laura Nyro Project is a celebration of the art and soul of Laura Nyro.”
