Rene Diaz

Entertainer, Singer Songwriter 

 Wrote his first song called “The Colour in Between Us” over three decades ago, and is still penning his lyrics & melodies today. Country music is my passion & I have been grinding that wheel for over twenty years, performing on stage in front of 5000, to singing from a corner at an RSL club, five star international hotels to a chicken wired establishment in Laverton Victoria....I’ve played them all on my own or with my band

RENE DIAZ & AVALON

 City-Slicker Country Heart was my first commercially released recording produced by Rex Goh in 1995 with two singles reaching the top 10 in the Australian country charts. A finalist in the best new talent at the Tamworth country awards and winner of the Best Songwriter, and Entertainer Of The Year awards at the Victorian Country Music Awards were some of the recognition the album received.

 

  These days after a 10 year break from touring the countryside of Australia  and with age and a year of hard work running my own hotel and venue “The Bluestone Country Bistro” I have decided to take all the stress out of my life and go back to my first love , writing and playing COUNTRY MUSIC and once again touring the great Australian and maybe this time the European countryside as well.

 My latest project is more a labour of love as 50 year olds are not really commercially viable in any genre of music, it’s a shame because I am better now than I was back then. “Why Rock When You Really Want To Roll” will be the title of the latest album EP recorded and produced in Nashville Tn. and due for release in July 2010.

 Playing with the cream of Victoria’s country musicians Rene Diaz and his band Avalon are still doing the rounds at music festivals, clubs and hotels. Rene Diaz also performs as a solo entertainer with his current show  “COUNTRY COME’S TO TOWN” the show features traditional country from Johnny Cash, George Strait, Slim Dusty to today’s country from Brad Paisely, Josh Turner to Keith Urban plus a host of his originals & covers from his 3 C.D.’s.  be sure to check it out when it comes to your town cause Rene Diaz is certainly amongst the most accomplished, versatile & experienced independent country music artist out of Victoria and still harbouring a dream of having his music heard by country music fans all over the world and of course in his adopted home of Australia.
