Former contestant on The Voice France - Diana Espir premiered her debut single and lyric video for"Tomboy" this week.
"Tomboy" features Nelly and was produced by Uriel "Frenchie" Kadouch. "It's a playful song about a girl who likes to have a plain old good time hanging out in cars with her homeboys... it's about me realizing that sometimes I'd rather have fun around boys."
The former Voice France contestant started her career writing and singing ballads. At 15, she made her debut with "Je dessine mon destin" ("I Design My Own Destiny"). "My music was geared towards a younger audience," says Diana, who, at the time, appropriately specialized in teen-oriented fare. "What I'm doing now takes my music to the next level." While Diana's been busily recording her latest material in some of New York City's famed studios with her producer Uriel "Frenchie" Kadouch and prepping her music video for "Tomboy," several projects she recently completed are bubbling in Paris, where she had been living. Her voice-over work is being used for dubbing everything from commercials to popular TV shows into French.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Diana's myriad creative pursuits allow her many mediums for expression. However, "singing," she says, "is my favorite thing to do, and it's going to be what I'm doing until I can't do it anymore."

The album is now available for pre-order today from all participating digital retailers. Those who pre-order will receive an instant download of "Just One Of The Guys."
"Just One Of The Guys" was produced by Beck, who also contributes backing vocals. "It was one of the tunes I'd tried a few different ways before I finally recorded it with Beck at his home studio in Malibu," Lewis says. "The whole experience was super laid-back - walking on the beach, talking about movies, the Rolling Stones, and French pop music. It was just very mellow and lovely."
Beck is one of several artists Lewis chose to produce tracks on The Voyager, which also features production from Ryan Adams, alongside Mike Viola, as well as her longtime collaborator, Johnathan Rice. The Voyager is the former Rilo Kiley frontwoman's third solo album and first in six years, following 2006's Rabbit Fur Coat (with The Watson Twins) and 2008's Acid Tongue.
