Diana Gameros is an Alternative Latin singer/songwriter who performs soulful songs of love, longing, and hope. Originally from Ciudad Juarez, Mexico and now living in San Francisco, Gameros creates authentic, inspiring music that reflects the 21st century experiences of a young indie artist at the borderlands between cultures, languages, and genres. Whether teasing every ounce of expression from her acoustic guitar in an intimate cafe or bringing people to their feet in a club with her dynamic full band, Gameros transfixes listeners with her soaring vocals, impressive playing and captivating stage presence.
Gameros was born to a musical family where she was surrounded by traditional mexican songs of love and revolution. The first of her family to receive formal music lessons, Gameros left Mexico as a teenager to study piano and recording technology in Michigan. During those formative years, she soaked up the sounds of classical music, underground rock, the avant-garde, world music, and jazz, forever influencing her own deeply diverse style. Indeed, Gameros' music has been likened in its subtlety, beauty, and nuance to Rosa Passos, Beirut, Johanna Newsom, and Charlotte Gainsbourg. One music journalist referred to Gameros as "the Latin Feist." Indeed, her Latin American influences -- including contemporary artists like Bebel Gilberto, Fabulosos Cadillacs and Cafe Tacvba -- are woven into her musical DNA.
After just a few years in San Francisco, Gameros' talent and versatility as a performer has brought her a steady stream of high profile gigs at such notable venues as Yoshi's Lounge, The Independent, The Red Poppy Art House, and dozens of other venues small and large. Even as she continues her musical journey, Gameros inspires her community as an activist promoting social justice through organizations like ALIADI (Alianza Latinoamericana por los Derechos de los Inmigrantes) and 16 Days of ARTivism.
Diana Gameros is currently producing her first album, due out in 2013.
