Six-String Siren Diana Rein Joins J. Rockett Audio Designs Artist Roster

dd3

The ‘Six-String Siren,’ guitarist Diana Rein, has joined the J. Rockett  Audio Designs artist roster, to play their pedals during her live shows and audio recordings.

“At the start of 2016 I was left stranded at the start of recording leads for my album when my boost pedal went bust,” says Rein. “I had heard of the J. Rockett Archer pedal so I decided to call the company directly to buy a pedal. I ended up talking with (Company Co-Owner) Chris Van Tassel on the phone and we had a great conversation. I knew I had found a company that was building pedals with quality in mind.

“Fast forward to NAMM a year later when I made sure to visit the J. Rockett booth to thank the owners personally and to hand them my completed album which used the Archer on every song. But while there, I got to try out many of their awesome pedals like “The Dude” which is now the newest addition to my pedal board! I am very happy to be on their artist roster and to be in the company of so many smokin’ guitar players that use J. Rockett pedals,” concludes Rein.

Diana Rein Rocked 2016, And 2017 Looks Like More Of The Same!

2017 has started off with a bang for Rein. In addition to signing with D&A Guitar Gear and J. Rockett Audio Designs, her album “Long Road” finished #96 in the Top 200 Best Blues Rock Albums of 2016 from the influential Roots Music Report; was voted “Best Female Artist” for 2016 by the Doc’s Blues Awards; chosen one of the “25 Artists and Bands who Made 2016 Rock!” in Rockwired Magazine’s year-end issue; and won “Best Blues Artist,” “Best Female CD,” and “Fan Favorite,” as voted by the website, L.A. Music Critic.

“Scorching guitar riffs and sultry vocals…perfect blending of hard-hitting blues and rock guaranteed to excite Blues fans. One of the Blues world’s rising stars.”

AMERICAN BLUES SCENE

“Reins’ voice is very reminiscent of a young Emmylou Harris. She’s capable of conveying vulnerability or toughness in equal measure and adds a versatility to her music.”

BLUES BYTES

“Diana Rein lets her Blues evolve on Long Road, letting chords carve deep  gashes into the emotions of the tracks and setting the notes free to wrap around the guilt of desire (“Wicked”), burn of betrayal (“Down Down Down”) and triumphant return (“Come Back Home”).

THE ALTERNATE ROOT

On Long Road, Diana Rein displays a sharp tongue, driving blues-based guitar, and melodic solos. It won’t take long before you fall under her spell. The title track eases you into the album with the admission that life tried to steal her dream but “it’s been a long road and now I’m coming home, time forgives, lets me in, starting over.” With vocals and guitar solos intertwining in a call-and-response fashion, the melody keeps you floating on a sea of sound. “Wild One” punches the listener in the gut with its bone-rattling bass line and lead guitar riff. This sets the stage for what Long Road is about: Soaring guitar solos and thought-provoking lyrics. Some big attitude from a little lady. “I love to play the Blues till dawn, my main man is Stevie Ray Vaughan,” which also allows Rein to honor her biggest inspiration. “Livin’ Loud” exudes a swamp-y swagger, it’s Hendrix-esque ’60’s guitar solo driving home the point that loud is the way it’s going to be. “Greenlight” is a response to Doyle Bramhall Jr.’s “Greenlight Girl,” with driving drums that won’t let up and guitars that sound like a train steadily making its way into the stratosphere: “I’m gonna take you home tonight, it’s us and the spirits of the night, baby I won’t put up a fight, I want you now.”
