"Song To A Refugee follows in the footsteps of (Woody Guthrie's) Dustbowl Ballads.”
- Financial Times ★★★★

“Diana Jones is one of the best songwriters I've heard in the last ten years.”

 - Steve Earle


From the NEW YORK TIMES Article, June 7, 2021: 


Written from the underside of history, “Song to a Refugee” finds Jones steadfastly siding with the oppressed, much in the spirit of Woody Guthrie’s “Dust Bowl Ballads.” 

- Bill Friskics - Warren, New York Times


“Diana’s record is a relentless hammering home of how we ignore a huge body of people who are living through the results of human cruelty and insanity...this is such a big problem that it has to be dealt with in small ways,” Seeger said, referring to the global migration crisis. “But the small ways are not small. This is not a small album.””

- Peggy Seeger, New York Times
