Can The Voice’s Season 1 runner-up Dia Frampton be any cuter?  I couldn’t resist the opportunity to see the singer-songwriter at one of my favorite New York venues, Highline Ballroom.  At 24, Frampton has a soft, sweet voice that reminds me of a young Dolly Parton, but a lot more sultry and smokey.  She’s supporting her solo album Red with a tour featuring her super cute sister Meg on keys and guitar and three other band members.  The two also tour together as Meg & Dia, but it was The Voice that launched the latter Frampton sister as a solo artist.  Highlights of the night were her opener, “Don’t Kick the Chair,” “Trapeze” and her first single, “The Broken Ones.”  She also covered some of her older Meg & Dia material and the Tom Petty classic, “American Girl.”  Keep an ear open for this girl.  I’m hooked.
