Dilana: A tattooed and, more importantly, tremendously talented singer and songwriter, Dilana counts Tina Turner as one of her musical idols. And it's easy to see why. Just as Tina carried the gusto and appeal of the big boys, so does Dilana, a thoughtful and direct woman who immediately communicates serious rocker cred.
Born in Johannesburg, South Africa, Dilana began her singing career early, finding her way on stage in front of her first audience at the age of 7. From then on she was music obsessed, leaving school at 16 to sing in a traveling duo and soon performed in different bands. She moved to the Netherlands to further herself and start her own band. A wise decision-Dilana's band became one of the country's most sought after groups. From there she only went up, recording her debut album "Wonderfool", which garnered five singles, four music videos and loads of touring and festival gigs (over 200!).
Pretty, driven Dilana now lives in the United States where she's enjoying success as a solo act with surely more hits to follow. And we'll follow her. Honestly, Dilana has the power to make us follow her anywhere.
