Biography

Diana Krall was born into a musical family in Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada (on November 16, 1964). She began learning the piano at the age of four. In high school, she started playing in a small group. At the age of fifteen, she started playing regularly in several Nanaimo restaurants. She also spent some time in Toronto studying with Canadian Jazz great, Don Thompson (Bass/Piano) and with the support of the Canada Council for the Arts she moved to the U.S to continue studies and develop her career.

Her playing attracted the attention of bass player Ray Brown, who brought her into touch with influential teachers and producers. At the age of seventeen, she won a scholarship from the Vancouver Jazz Festival to study at the Berklee College of Music in Boston. After three terms she moved to Los Angeles to study with Jimmy Rowles, with whom she also began to sing. In 1990, Krall relocated to New York. She is married to British musician Elvis Costello.

    Diana was 15 years old when I First met her. She was a student in my English and Drama classes. She invited me to a gig at a local pub, where she performed with local college students. Pub gigs are usually spoiled by interruptive conversations, but when Diana started playing, the only sound from the pub patrons was the deafening applause at the end of her set. Ironically, she was not invited back. The Pub manager found out that she was underage and banned her.
