Product Description

2011 album from the runner up from NBC's hit show The Voice - Season 1. Originally a member of Meg & Dia with her sister, she is preserving her indie roots, she's telling honest stories via every new song that she writes, while channeling an undeniable, upbeat vibe. As a result of that process, she makes inspirational, intimate, and infectious music that draws from indie, pop, and rock influenced by everyone from Tom Petty and Joni Mitchell to The Avett Brothers and Mumford and Sons.

About the Artist

Dia Frampton began with a dream: the dream to make music - music that touches the heart and mind. Music that is inspirational and intimate for everyone. This dream led her to start a band with her sister Meg; collectively they called themselves Meg & Dia. Their band toured worldwide with some of the most respected bands in Rock, and unexpectedly led to the first season of NBC's hit television series, The Voice.

As Meg & Dia, Dia and her band released albums on various labels, most notably their 2009 release, "Here, Here and Here" through Warner Brothers Records. Soon after the release, the band parted ways with Warner to work independently on new music. The result, "Cocoon," is a record filled with heart and soul, self-released and recorded in the Frampton kitchen.

Wanting to support her band and promote "Cocoon" fueled her impromptu decision to audition for NBC's The Voice. Unknowingly, she quickly became a fan favorite. "I was surprised at how far I went," reveals Dia. "The Voice has pushed everything into a whole new realm."

On The Voice, millions of viewers fell in love with Dia's mesmerizing vocals, unique interpretations of popular songs, and inimitable style. Her performances of Kanye West's "Heartless" and R.E.M.'s "Losing My Religion" as well as the original track, "Inventing Shadows" caught fire online. They proved to be the highest-charting iTunes digital songs from any contestant on The Voice. "Inventing Shadows" even reached #1 on iTunes as well as #20 on the Billboard Hot 100. Cumulatively, her solo digital releases exceed 500,000 downloads.

Upon finishing the show, Universal Republic Records signed Dia, and she immediately began working on her solo debut - due in stores December 6, 2011. The album's first single, "The Broken Ones" takes flight on the strength of her powerful vocals and heartfelt songwriting. However, it's only a prelude of what lies in store on the record.

Preserving her indie roots, she's telling honest stories via every new song that she writes, while channeling an undeniable, upbeat vibe. As a result of that process, she makes inspirational, intimate, and infectious music that draws from indie, pop, and rock influenced by everyone from Tom Petty and Joni Mitchell to The Avett Brothers and Mumford and Sons.

Dia declares, "I want to bring it back to the classic singer-songwriter style. It can be magical without all of the bells and whistles".

I knew there was something special and truly unique about Dia Frampton when she was on The Voice. She stood out from everyone else and was fresh and put her own charming spin on all the songs she sang. She was far and away my favorite.

This album is a fine follow-up that lives up to the potential she showed then.

Unlike a lot of other first albums from musical TV show contestants this one is really wonderful!

It's perky but not too cute. All the songs have real feeling to them and Dia has had a hand in writing them all. Somewhere between folk and pop with a dash of country added on one song by her mentor Blake Shelton. There are great arrangements as well that bring out Dia's individual style beautifully. Remember when she sang REM's Loosing My Religion on The Voice? Possibly her best tune on the show and the one that got her really going as a contender. Well, she gets equally fine backing on Red.

Dia doesn't really fit into one category unless it would be singer-songwriter. She seems to like it this way.

The album's mood is cheery but when you listen to the lyrics there is some real pathos to them, The Broken Ones and Good Boy in particular. Broken Ones is her single from the album and it's a fantastic, catchy radio-worthy song. I love it!

The closest comparison I can make to this album is Duffy's Rockferry.

But Dia is completely Dia and no one else.

I hope this will be the first of many delightful albums from Dia Frampton.

I think this album has its key special trademarks. There's such a great diversity to this album, but it lies true to no single genre. Dia has created her own genre with this album, as it touches upon country pop to soft ballads to more upbeat, dance songs to the old familiar storytelling and darker songwriting. The album is well-balanced and, although I may be biased, I think this album serves as a great milestone for Dia. By searching back to her roots and home all-throughout the songwriting process of this album, Dia has been able to reflect on all of the situations in her life that have led her to where she is now--and the product of that search is the album "Red". Much more mature and holding so much more knowledge of the world around her than when she released her first studio album with her sister Meg in 2006, Dia is able to create songs that are true to her; whether they're sweet, spooky, fun, or just plain make you happy, Dia has captured what she wants in music with this album, but is well aware of the troubles and traps that may lie ahead of her. This is told through her wonderful songwriting and carefully chosen effects in instrumentation. With careful listening, one can easily see the talent that has always bred beneath this small-town Utah girl. Although her earlier songs with Meg & Dia have strictly strayed away from her country roots, Dia is able to incorporate all she's loved and learned throughout the years, mixing in her country roots with the darker rock of her early years, the poppy ballads she's obligingly sung on "The Voice", and the not-too-dancey-yet-still-fun songs that embrace the time she is in now.Read more ›

Thanks to Amazon's $3.99 special on this album download, I have discovered a wonderful artist! Dia Frampton's voice (a smidgeon of Lisa Loeb and dash of Colbie Caillat) combined with some infectious tunes make this album worth repeat listens. Something about her voice and the song selections are like running through a clothesline full of freshly laundered sheets on a sunny spring day.

Honestly, being one of the top two final contestants on the first season of "The Voice", Dia should have been declared the winner in the end. This album, in my opinion, is proof of this as it exemplifies her amazing talent, and her excellent voice and singing ability. Dia's style of singing is at times quirky, at times haunting, and at other times seems to just flow into a smooth, bluesy coolness without batting an eye. I love every single song on this first album by Dia, and I look forward to more great albums from her in the future. Dia's talent, and more importantly her "voice", just has that something special that will carry her through a very long and rewarding career in music. Get this album while it's still under $5 on Amazon. You won't be disappointed.

I can't help but love everything this girl does--from her Meg & Dia band to The Voice- It's awesome seeing her venture off in the world to inspire people with her voice and music. I will forever support her and her music. I have to admit this RED recording is much different from her previous stuff but that just shows how many possibilities are stored in her. I have been listening to the album on repeat and have grown to love each and every track, Daniel, being the most personal to her and also my favorite off the album. Buy it!!!!!!

As a Grandma, I bought this for my Grand Daughter, who likes Dia Frampton. While not of my generation, I too like
to listen to her (GD's) music. If it hadn't been for GD, I probably would not have heard of this artist. I still think it is
teen music, some of it a little too emotional for me or that I would recommend. but then I'm not a teenager, modern
enough to have some words roll off my shoulders.
