Dilana at Cafe Roux
April 27, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pmR150
The charismatic performer with a powerful, husky, smoky voice was born in Johannesburg as Dilana Smith. Her inspiration to start singing came from visceral singers such as Janis Joplin & Tina Turner. Dilana left school at sixteen to follow her own dreams & soon found herself with a promising music career in Holland, becoming one of the country’s most coveted live acts. Her 2000 album Wonderfool scored five singles, four videos & a string of touring and festival gigs throughout the region.
But Dilana made name for herself when she entered the reality show “Rock Star Supernova.” As one publication noted, “The minute she stepped on the Mayan Theatre stage in Los Angeles in Episode One & performed Nirvana’s ‘Lithium,’ she instantly became the show’s frontrunner.” Her powerful vocals and commanding stage presence amassed legions of new fans from around the world. That acclaim has inspired Dilana to pursue her musical passion with characteristic tenacity.
Dilana has performed with rock legends Tommy Lee & Mick Mars (Mötley Crue), Dave Navarro (Jane’s Addiction, Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Panic Channel) and Gilby Clark (Guns N’ Roses). In 2007, she opened for Aerosmith & Beth Hart, & launched two solo tours spanning North America & Western Europe that consistently earned stellar reviews.
In 2009 she ventured into film acting & the talented singer/songwriter won the BEST ACTRESS award at the Action On Film International Film Festival as well as winning both the BEST ACTRESS award & the BEST MUSIC award at the American International Film Festival for the 9 songs she wrote & performed in the rock drama, Angel Camouflaged. Dilana has toured the world extensively and performed in Afghanistan for the troops in 2009/2010. While music remains the focus of her life, Dilana is also committed to helping others, hence her alliance with PinkDrive for this tour.
