Dia Frampton
Dia Frampton
Dia Frampton started with one dream: the dream to make music -- music that touched the heart and mind, inspirational and intimate. This dream led her to start a band with her sister Meg called Meg & Dia (a band that toured the world with some of the most respected bands in Rock), and unexpectedly to the first season of NBC's hit television series, The Voice.

As Meg & Dia, Dia and her band released numerous records through different labels, most notably, their 2009 release, "Here, Here and Here" through Warner Brothers Records. Soon after the release, the band parted ways with Warner to work on new music that they would have complete creative and artistic control over -- the result, "Cocoon," is a record filled with heart and soul, self-released and recorded in the Frampton kitchen.

Wanting to support her band and promote "Cocoon" fueled her impromptu decision to audition for NBC's The Voice. Unknowingly, she quickly became a fan favorite. "I was surprised at how far I went," reveals Dia. "The Voice has pushed everything into a whole new realm."

On The Voice, millions of viewers fell in love with Dia's mesmerizing vocals, unique interpretations of popular songs, and inimitable style. Her performances of Kanye West's "Heartless" and R.E.M.'s "Losing My Religion" as well as the original track, "Inventing Shadows" caught fire online. They proved to be the highest-charting iTunes digital songs from any contestant on The Voice. "Inventing Shadows" even reached #1 on iTunes as well as #20 on the Billboard Hot 100. Cumulatively, her solo digital releases exceed 500,000 downloads. And in December, Dia topped Entertainment Weekly's year-end "Favorite Reality Show Personality" poll by a wide margin.

Upon finishing the show, Universal Republic Records signed Dia, and she immediately began working on her solo debut -- due in stores December 6, 2011. The album's first single, "The Broken Ones" takes flight on the strength of her powerful vocals and heartfelt songwriting. However, it's only a prelude of what lies in store on the record.

Preserving her indie roots, she's telling honest stories via every new song that she writes, while channeling an undeniable, upbeat vibe. As a result of that process, she makes inspirational, intimate, and infectious music that draws from indie, pop, and rock influenced by everyone from Tom Petty and Joni Mitchell to The Avett Brothers and Mumford and Sons.

Dia declares, "I want to bring it back to the classic singer- songwriter style. It can be magical without all of the bells and whistles."
