Diana Panton's latest release, Christmas Kiss, is a delightful mixture of carefully selected chestnuts, obscure gems and new originals. This album is sure to become a seasonal favourite! "The quality and the mood of the music on this CD is very different from your typical seasonal disc; you don't have to play it only in December. Personally, I could listen to this recording all year long." (Guido Basso). Since her initial CD release, Panton’s career has been gathering steady momentum. Her ethereal voice and strong aesthetic vision have garnered her numerous honours, including two previous JUNO Award nominations, two Silver Disc Awards in Japan, a host of Canadian and U.S. indie nominations, as well Top 10 sales chart success in Taiwan and Hong Kong. Her work has been consistently praised by listeners and music critics alike for its unique vocal delivery, exceptional song selection, quality musicianship and audio fidelity.
