One of the UK's finest Soul Divas, Northern Soul and Motown sensation Diane Shaw performs one intimate show at Hideaway!
After 20 years performing on stage alongside Soul Legends such as Tito Jackson, The Stylistics, Martha Reeves, Sister Sledge, Eddie Holman, George McCrae, Alexander O’Neal and many more, Northern Soul & Motown singer Diane Shaw finally takes her turn in the spotlight and brings her own debut album set, encompassing everything she has learned from the masters, keeping that old school soul sound alive and delivering it to a new generation.
Shaw has toured with her live show performing female Motown and Soul classics, firstly backed by a 7 piece band, but later as a solo artist. In 2011, Shaw reformed her backing band, and has been touring with them ever since, with various members swapping and changing over the years. Shaw has supported many artists over the years including Soul Stars such as George McCrae, Sister Sledge, Alexander O'Neal, Clem Curtis, Tommy Hunt and Grammy Award winner Kirk Whalum.
Numerous times over the last 15 years, Shaw was invited to perform at Northern Soul events, and started gathering her own fanbase in the genre, incorporating covers of Northern Soul songs into her show. Shaw was an early adopter of sites such as YouTube, and released many videos of her live performances, which helped gain her many more fans wanting to see her live show.
In November 2015, Shaw embarked on a 20 date UK Tour with the US Soul Legends The Stylistics, and performed at venues such as IndigO2 and the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall.
