“There are few things Diana doesn’t have time for these days. Notably: Assholes and subtlety.” —Vulture

“Bad-ass.”—The Wall Street Journal

Diana brings her original synth rock, soul, jazz, punk, lapdance, blues, pop, funk, indie acoustic, throat singing music to SHOWROOM, alongside music from her latest work, Clairvoyance, about what has happened since she took the advice of a spiritual counselor in the jungle in Thailand.

As seen on Netflix, Mortified stars adults sharing their most embarrassing childhood artifacts (journals, letters, lyrics, poems, home movies…) in front of total strangers. Celebrate the strange and extraordinary things that kids create—and the adults that they become. Share the shame.
