Co-Produced By Michael Leasure (Walter Trout Band), Drops Early ’19
Acclaimed SoCal guitarist Diana Rein rocks the blues in concert at Arcadia Blues Club, 16 E. Huntington Dr., Saturday, January 19. Showtime: 7:00pm. Tickets: $10. (advance); $15. (door). Info: (626) 447-9349 or visit http://www.arcadiabluesclub.com. Also performing on this great double-guitar bill: Florida-based artist, Shaw Davis & The Black Ties.
Rein is set to release her upcoming album, Queen Of My Castle, the follow-up to her critically-lauded 2016 release, Long Road, early Spring of 2019. Queen Of My Castle is being co-produced by Michael Leasure, drummer with one of the biggest blues-rock bands in the world, the Walter Trout Band.
“The new album is a collection of fifteen songs, and one song is a tribute to Stevie Ray Vaughan,” says Rein. “There’s a lot of traditional blues, high energy, upbeat, and a few blues-rock songs that I know you guys will love. This album will be lucky #3 for me, my first full-band album. I loved making my last record on my own, but I am really looking forward to challenging myself this time around and collaborating with the pros.”
Rein continues to be a compelling media presence, with recent features in national publications Huffington Post, Vegan Street Blog, and a Cover Story in Guitar Girl magazine, among others. Diana performed at The SoCal Divas of Blues Festival in Temecula last October, and travels overseas to play the 2019 Open Air Blues Festival in Romania (where Rein was born) this coming July.
