"Diana is one of those artists that takes no time to warm up the room. She steps onto the stage and instantly sets it on fire!"
"Clearly all eyes are on the main woman, and Rein is a talented guitarist, pulling out one lick after another and making it look effortless."-MUSIC CONNECTION
"Diana Rein is a rising blues rock guitarist on the Southern California scene. She plays with authority and sings like an angel. She's also one of the nicest people you're ever going to meet." -CADILLAC ZACK PRESENTS THE BLUES
"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." -AMERICAN BLUES SCENE
"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." - BLUES ROCK REVIEW
"On Queen of My Castle Rein's unique vocal swagger is punctuated by shredding rhythms, gritty guitars and a locker full of solidly embedded, catchy hooks." - Jeff Laufer of ROCK BANDS OF LA
With her sultry and powerful vocals reminiscent of Emmylou Harris and Bonnie Raitt, songs that evoke an emotional response and a guitar style that has been compared to the likes of BB King with the tone of Stevie Ray Vaughan, Diana Rein is becoming the quintessential blues musician.
Diana has played shows and festivals with her biggest achievement being the 2019 Open Air Blues Festival in Brezoi, Romania for 8,000+ people. She graced the cover of Guitar Girl Magazine for their Blues edition, was the winner of 3 LA Critics Music Awards for Best Blues Artist, Best Female CD (Album: Long Road) and Fan Favorite and is spreading her love of music, the Blues and guitar wherever she goes.
