Dina’s sound is a bluesy vocal, inspired by her upbringing listening to rock, singer/songwriters and jazz standards. Her influences include Dinah Washington, Etta James, Ann Wilson from Heart and Pat Benatar. Her vocals have taken her throughout the Mediterranean and Caribbean, as well as performances at the Fillmore Jazz Festival, Top of the Mark, Slim’s, Red Devil Lounge, Rassela’s, Pier 23 and Martuni’s, all in San Francisco. Recently, Dina’s talent has landed her gigs at the Ritz Carlton in Half Moon Bay and the Hard Rock LIVE in Orlando, Florida for a private event.
For her premiere single, At Last, Dina teamed up with San Francisco company, Walz Music & Sound, along with several remixers, including Wolfram Dettki, former Tommy Boy producer and hit songwriter for dance music artist, Amber. Also involved is Denis Curman, Croatian producer of the #1 hit in Japan by Impressione, “Nama Biiru,” and previous producer for Croatian star, Nina Badrić to create a unique audio experience. The acoustic mix features piano by Dr. Dee Spencer, professor of music and Department Chair of Music and Dance at San Francisco State University.
