Rein is set to release her new studio album, Queen Of My Castle, the follow-up to her critically-lauded 2016 release, Long Road, on Tuesday, April 30. Queen Of My Castle is being co-produced by Michael Leasure, drummer with one of the biggest blues-rock groups in the world, the Walter Trout Band; and mixed by Lincoln Clapp (who previously mixedTexas Flood by Stevie Ray Vaughn and Double Trouble, one of Rein’s biggest influiences).
“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 number three 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.
