Songwriter and multi instrumentalist
I am a Musician and composer, playing Keyboards Violin and Guitar, but I also work in IT doing programing so I am sort of geeky. I was also involved in starting an artists agency. I have a partner that I have been with for quite a while. Official Bio About Diana Stone Diana is a performing composer and musician playing Piano Violin & Guitar, synths and other stuff. She was a founder member of Rock/Roots band Elephant Shelf and also the Delta Ladies. She composes in a variety of styles from pop to rock to Jazz and and classical music .Diana is also expert in multi-media recording and music production. Glass Cage is the name that Diana's solo projects use. have been playing various instruments since I was about 15. I started on Harmonica, because it looked easy and it was cheap. I didn't get on that well with it though. I had always enjoyed the Piano but where I was living it was not possible for the family to have one frustratingly. We tried to get my Grandmas old piano, but sadly we lived in an upstairs flat and could not get it in. I made do with something called a reed organ, which was a bit like a harmonium with an electric blower. I did learn some basic things on it though. I also had a guitar which I made serious efforts with too. One instrument I had always really liked was the Violin and I started playing that too.

glass cage - You can see the further shore So whats sup. Sup. Well a couple of gigs. One in Chelmsford at the UB on Friday and one at the Woodbine nr Waltham Abbey (just in to Epping Forest) on Saturday. Both were good fun and people seemed enjoy the general racket. I had a slight panic with my phone and though I had screwed it up but it turned to be a slightly wonky usb lead. It has wireless charging so I shall do it that way from now. Panic over. Why though don't' they indicate which way is up with USB leads? My sister is who is diabetic is having to go on to injecting insulin. If it works out she may only have to do this for a short while, so fingers crossed. She has been practicing her stabbing technique on a toy leprechaun given by the practice nurse (possibly inspired by Torquemada) and I said that she should be aware that this means she will be cursed with a 1000 years bad luck. She is delighted as she said she was not expecting to live that long Torquemada lived to the ripe old age of 77 and historians generally agree that at no point did he stab any leprechauns though he was of course responsible for many other dastardly acts. . Make of that what you will. I have in between that also been continuing to fix up an old violin which is nearly cooked now so I have been doing something useful. Possibly building a couple more websites for people in the near future too having said I would not be doing that sort of stuff anymore. Never say never I guess. Sunday whilst writing this I am slightly fatigued I must admit, but its all cool. There is a bit of wind getting up now though. Also I have been doing a bit of writing and recording (in between some sulking and bouts of existential angst ) LOL
