A few months after the conclusion of NBC’s first season of “The Voice,” runner-up Dia Frampton is starting to claim her fame, with lots of thanks to her mentor Blake Shelton. The mentor relationship Blake had with his two contestants, Frampton and Xenia, was unlike the other mentors. You could really tell from watching the show that he truly believed in their talent and their success. Blake has believed in Frampton so much that he has booked her on his upcoming tour that will begin in February, around the same time as the start of the second season of “The Voice.”
In other big news for Frampton, she has been recording her debut album titled “Red,” which will be released on December 6 by Universal Records. This album includes collaborations with several great songwriters and producers such as Kid Cudi, Mark Pontius of Foster the People, Isabella Summers of Florence and the Machine and Tom Shapiro.
Frampton was known as the lyricist of the show. Because of this, Frampton says this is one of the most raw and emotional pieces of art she has ever put out. Before going solo, Frampton had several EPs under the name of Meg & Dia, a duet with her sister. Here is “My Ugly Mouth” from the EP “It’s Always Stormy In Tillamook.”
