The Heroine’s Journey of Diana Tejera

What is the best thing that I love about my work? I really love to collaborate with other musicians; composing together creates a great intimacy and generates emotions that enrich me. It’s great working having fun.

What is my idea of perfect happiness? My idea of perfect happiness is for instance to be with my guitar, in a dream beach with the people I love, close by a delicious restaurant serving fresh, local fish in a world living in peace.

What is my greatest fear? I have two major fears: flying and losing people I love.

What is the trait that I most deplore in myself? The lack of courage when having to face difficult situations because of the fear to hurt someone’s else’s feelings

What is my greatest extravagance? I don’t kick off my high heels even if I move flat.

On what occasion would I lie? I would probably lie if the real truth is unacceptable or impossible for me to explain, hence it would hurt too much .

What is the influence of role models, in my work and in my life? Although I strongly admire brave female songwriters, and am thankful for the strength and courage they have transmitted, I don’t feel I can label them as role models, but rather my energy and trust dispensers.

What is the thing that I dislike the most in my work? Most of the time being a musician is not recognised as a tough job. Also, there is still a lot of machism
When and where was I the happiest, in my work? When, during the concert of Tiziano Ferro held at Olympic stadium in Rome, 80.000 people were singing along the song I wrote “scivoli di nuovo”.
If I could, what would I change about myself? My inner chaos.
What is my greatest achievement in work? Whilst in the beginning I needed a sound engineer and a producer to record my songs, over the years I have learnt how to produce, and arrange the music , just by myself.
What is my most inspirational location, in my city? I usually need to change location to find new inspirations, but there is one place that always puts me in touch with the deepest part of myself; a beautiful and big park in Rome, Villa Pamphili.
What is my favourite place to eat and drink, in my city? A gorgeous restaurant bistrot managed by young women who had courage to leave their previous jobs to follow their dreams. It is called Pianostrada.
Who is my greatest fan, sponsor, partner in crime? It was my father: Every time a review about me came out, he used to copy it and share it to all the stores in the neighborhood .
Whom would I like to work with in the future? I would love to work with an american songwriter called Joan as police woman. I am passionate about her great ability to experiment sounds and music.
What project, in the nearby future, am I looking forward to work on?
I am working on 2 projects that are about to be realeased. My new record and the release of ED MONDO’s second album (the duo made by the trumpet Ersilia Prosperi and me).
How can you contact me?
