Dia Dia is the project of composer and performer, Danielle Birrittella. Her debut EP, Tiny Ocean, will be released Spring 2016 and features songs produced by producer/drummer Joey Waronker (Beck, REM, Atoms for Peace), Tim Carr (The Americans, HAIM) and Frankie Siragusa (theLAB).

Dia’s lush baroque-pop sound incorporates vocal pedals and ethereal vocal textures abstracted by organic percussion, electric guitars, ukulele, tiple, cellos, and drones. Raised on a Hindu ashram, she sang ceremonial ragas as a child, which led to training and performing as an opera singer throughout the U.S. and Europe. Along these travels, she began writing songs on a ukulele.

A native of New England, and a graduate of New York University (BA) and California Institute of the Arts (MFA), she has lived and worked as an artist in New York, France, and Italy. Performances have included Disney Hall’s REDCAT – Los Angeles, La Musica Lirica – Italy, The Chautauqua Institute – New York, La Main d’Or – Paris, and The Ludwig Foundation – Cuba. Her upcoming project is a song cycle set to Rilke’s Sonnets To Orpheus for string quartet and her voice featuring 10 composers, including Jherek Bischoff, Aoife O’Donovan, Christopher Rountree (WildUp) and Qasim Naqvi (Dawn of Midi).

Dia’s live performance of Covered In Light was recently featured on NPR’s Tiny Desk Contest.
