AMERICAN BLUES SCENE
"Each song on Queen of My Castle features an urgency, with stinging guitar solos and solid riffs. Interestingly, while Rein was heavily influenced by Stevie Ray Vaughan, she doesn’t mindlessly mimic his style. Her solos have lots of big bends, like Vaughan’s, but there’s also a simplicity and directness that’s all Rein’s own."
BLUES ROCK REVIEW
"On Queen of My Castle the ﬁrst six songs are unabashedly centered around standard blues structures and tones. This is not derisive, but rather a nod to Rein’s arrival as a fully formed blues ﬁgure who is not afraid to showcase her gruﬄy sparkled voice and creative guitar ideas."

ROCKBANDS OF LA- JEFF LAUFER
