Diesel To Release ‘Americana’ Album

Diesel will release his new album ‘Americana’ in July and set out around Australia across May and June to showcase the album.

‘Americana’ is an appropriate album for the US born, Australian based musician. “It’s such a broad term, Americana – it means different things to different people,” Diesel says. “From moving out here from America, then moving back and forth again … I wonder if I would have as much fascination and love for American music if I had just stayed in America all my life and never made it out to Australia? It’s safe to say I probably wouldn’t.”

Diesel has released two songs from the album for fans to get a taste of what is to come.

Tom Petty’s Here Comes My Girl

“I remember hearing him on radio in the ’70s when we lived in Arizona. That’s a song I had a real attachment to from when I first heard the opening chords – they have this beautiful lilt to them.”

Bob Dylan’s Queen Jane Approximately

“What more can I say – guitar players like me just love Bob Dylan songs, going right back to Jimi Hendrix saying, ‘That’d be a good song to let a guitar go nuts on …’ (about All Along the Watch Tower)”.
