What do Gwen Stefani, Andra Day and the feature film, Echo In The Canyon, have in common? Upon first examination, possibly nothing. But that's where you'd be wrong. Enter The Dirty Diamond, LA's premier Rock n' Roll band, comprised of talented musicians–Sam Babayan (lead vocals, guitar, slide guitar), Fernando Perdomo (Electric Guitars), Derek Frank (bass, effects) and Shay Godwin (drums, backing vocals)–who's individual careers have been comprised of touring with Stefani, accompanying Day and playing throughout the aforementioned feature film.

Today, The Dirty Diamond releases their brand new single, "Going Through Changes," featuring Andra Day on vocals. Take a listen here: http://smarturl.it/goingthroughchanges

“It was truly an honor and joy to do this song with The Dirty Diamond," shares Andra Day. "I saw them live first and was blown away, so when the opportunity to do this song with them came up, I was on it. They’re musically brilliant and soulful. I connected to the song right away sonically and spiritually. The lyrics really elicit a feeling of being on a precipice but help to turn falling into a leap of faith. They bring peace to such an uncomfortable moment.”

"When I was first sketching the outlines of this song, my idea was for it to be a switch-off duet between my voice and a powerful woman's voice...kind of like 'Gimme Shelter' by The Rolling Stones," elaborates the band's lead vocalist and principal songwriter, Sam Babayan. "It took our group some time to complete the lyrics and actually make it happen, but we never could've imagined that powerful voice would be that of the incomparable Andra Day. Recording this song with her was a wonderful and memorable experience. She is a remarkable person and a great friend to our band."

"Going Through Changes (feat. Andra Day)" is the first single released from The Dirty Diamond's forthcoming record, From The Stars, out June 14th.

In support of the release, the band has a handful of upcoming performances scheduled in California. Find a list below.

The Dirty Diamond is comprised of some of the finest and most sought-after musicians in Los Angeles. Guitarist Fernando Perdomo is a producer and session multi-instrumentalist who has toured and recorded with Jakob Dylan, Fiona Apple, Todd Rundgren, and to name a few. Drummer Shay Godwin tours the world with the amazing Andra Day. Bassist Derek Frank currently tours with Gwen Stefani and the legendary Shania Twain. Underneath the intense outer layer of the music is a massive amount of heart and soul, culled from the essence of timeless and boundless rock songwriting, provided by their frontman, Sam Babayan, and his shaman-like essence in understanding the trials and tribulations of what makes life tick.
