Long Road by Diana Rein is a wonderful collection of songs with a sense of passion in every note and a view into the life of a female artist that has truly paid her dues. Like the atypical Blues at the crossroads moment when a person can choose fame or faith, she made the choice to follow her heart with faith in herself and found fame worth having.
Born in Romania and raised in Chicago, this young woman had a dream of playing guitar long before many. In a faithful trip to the music store with her father, that day her future was sealed and her drive began. Since then, Diana has released several albums and has a loyal following of fans that her music speaks to and you will understand that once you hear this multi-talented artist on “Long Road”.
On her magnetic Indie Blues sophomore album “Long Road”, the artist named “the Six String Siren” by her adoring fans will captivate you. With a sharp tongue, driving blues guitars and melodic solos — it won’t take long before you fall under her spell.
Ranked top of performing artists in here genre on Reverbnation, Diana is a musical force to be both reckoned with and adored.
I personally found the album to be both melodic and masterful, reaching for the sky Diana can take your breath away, and she creates images in your mind where you can witness the life lead by one so young yet so experienced. Songs of Sadness, Hope, Love found and lost, Dreams Fulfilled and Personal Triumph, no topic is untouched.
If you love the Blues with a Western / Rock range, fueled by Beauty and Desire, then Long Road is the album you have been waiting to hear. Diana wrote the entire album personally and recorded many of the instruments personally, giving a special love and flavor to every song, truly making this album a reflection of her soul, now immortalized forever.
