Diane Ponzio, born and raised in New York City, is a drama graduate of the famed High School of Performing Arts, and holds a BA in Mathematics from Brooklyn College. The angst of life and advanced calculus led her to songwriting, and inspired her friends to buy her a Martin guitar, which began her lifetime love affair with the instrument, and her career as a singer-songwriter.

She began to perform in clubs coast to coast – East River to Hudson River. In 1985, having honed her skills as a performer, guitarist, singer, and songwriter, she wrote a letter to C.F. Martin IV, which earned her an opportunity to travel on behalf of the company, playing her songs, and helping to tell the Martin Story.

Her long time association with Martin Guitars has resulted in thousands of appearances, and two signature models that bear her name. Diane performs her own songs, which feature haunting melodies, percussive grooves, and intelligent lyrics.

She has released 9 full length CDs, and enjoys giving concerts and being with her friends all over the world.
