Diana Chittester is a singer-songwriter, and, don’t forget, a guitarist.
“I really have to replace the four-piece band with my one guitar,” she said. Listening to her original “Secret,” the listener is likely to think there’s not much room for anything other than her raw, ringing strings.
“For me, the guitar usually tells the majority of the story,” the Cleveland based performer said in a recent telephone interview.
The songs typically start with a riff, she said. “Then it’s up to me to come up with the right words to match. ... Finding the right words is more of a trick, more of a theme, than telling a specific story.”
Chittester comes with a strong music and literary background. Her mother, a professional pianist, started her on piano in third grade. Her father, a Methodist minister inspired the literary side of her, and provided the guitar.
At about 14, she said, “I swiped one of his guitars out of the closet.”
From those first C, G, and D chords, blossomed the full-bodied sound and evocative lyrics of her work.
