Biography

Diana's album Long Road placed at #96 on the Roots Music Report Blues Rock for 2016.

2016 LA Critics Award winner for Best Blues Artist, Best Female CD (Album: Long Road) and Fan Favorite!

In mythology, Sirens were dangerous yet beautiful creatures that would lure sailors with enchanting songs and make them crash onto the rocky coast. It is said that some crews survived by using wax in their ears to keep from being compelled.

But what if the music was turned up? What if it was amplified? What if there were soaring guitar tones that shook your bones and cut through to your soul?

You’d be helpless.

Get ready to meet your fate with Diana Rein on her magnetic Indie Blues sophomore album “Long Road”.

See if you can escape the artist named "the Six String Siren" by her adoring fans. With a sharp tongue, driving blues guitars and melodic solos  — it won’t take long before you fall under her spell.

Born in Romania and raised in Chicago, Diana came onto the scene as an acoustic rhythm guitar player in her hometown with the release of her first album of 8 originals "The Back Room".

"On Long Road, Diana Rein doesn't just show off her incredible guitar playing, which is reminiscent of Stevie Ray Vaughan with a sprinkling of Buddy Guy & Jimi Hendrix, but also her powerful voice !! Killer Vocals, Killer Guitar, Killer Rock !! With music like this, Diana's Rein as "Queen of Blues/Rock" will be a long one !! " - Michael Trike McGrath of Trike's Trax

It wasn't long before she was doing solo and band shows all around Chicago including venues like: The Double Door, Fitzgerald's, Joe's Bar, Lucille's, festivals, college shows and playing a set at The Taste of Chicago right before Bonnie Raitt hit the main stage.

Diana is also working on a solo project/one woman band show that will be an intimate treat for her fans. Her music is saturated with the Blues at its core and infused with guitar driven Rock and Roots.

So Sexy

SO SEXY
Written by Diana Rein/Diamond Rein Music

Well I’m a roamer honey
Free spirit don’t need money
Just try to pin me down I’ll fly
Get up and go this second
Don’t know just where I’m headed
But deep down inside I know it’s right

And I say
Can’t live your dream..mm
It’s just not me
It’s not easy
But this is how it’s got to be

Just strap on that guitar it screams and I’m so free
It speaks the truth and makes me get a little crazy
Ain’t no substitute, man it feels so good
Rockin’ out yeah, feelin’ so sexy.

I know you want a piece now baby
Little crumbs is all I’m givin’
In the race and I can’t waste my time
Won’t forget good times now sugar
Or lead you on the path to ruin
Don’t wanna break your heart and see you cry

And I say
Can’t live your dream..mm
It’s just not me
It’s not easy
But this is how it’s got to be

Just strap on that guitar it screams and I’m so free
It speaks the truth and makes me get a little crazy
Ain’t no substitute, man it feels so good
Rockin’ out yeah, feelin’ so sexy.

Man you know
I gotta do what I gotta do
And you say
Come on baby
Why don’t you stay

And I say
Can’t live your dream..mm
It’s just not me
It’s not easy
But this is how it’s got to be

Just strap on that guitar it screams and I’m so free
It speaks the truth and makes me get a little crazy
Ain’t no substitute, man it feels so good
Rockin’ out yeah, feelin’ so sexy

Goodbye

GOODBYE
Written by Diana Rein/Diamond Rein Music

You live in all my dreams
Slide into my aching heart
I wake up feeling blue
I just don’t want this day to start
But it’s gone on too long
Didn’t think I could be strong
My love for you is gone
Can finally sing this song

I’ll say goodbye then I’ll be gone
Just need to find where I belong
Don’t bother thinking what went wrong
You’ll cry and I’ll be moving on

You used to kiss my lips and
Wipe the tears from my eyes
But then you turned your cheek
Guess it was all a big disguise..oh
You weren’t a friend to me
You threw away the key
I know you’ll want me back
But it’s too late for that

I’ll say goodbye then I’ll be gone
Just need to find where I belong
Don’t bother thinking what went wrong
You’ll cry and I’ll be moving on

You had me up down, all around
Thinking you would love me better
Then you pushed me, pulled me
Now it’s your turn to be the debtor
Can’t get much better

Chorus

Till You Came Along

Written By: Diana Rein

TILL YOU CAME ALONG
Written by Diana Rein

It’s the midnight sky can
Drive me wild
You’re inchin’ so close
I’m on fire
The wind is whispering
My hearts caving in
Is it too soon to say
I love you

Sometimes it’s hard just to take a fall
But for you I would risk it all

Ever since the day we met
I know that you were heaven sent
Baby you were just my type
Missing link, yeah Mr.Right
Love wasn’t a friend of mine
Till You Came Along, You Came Along
We really belong

In the pourin’ rain
Emotions going insane
It feels so great when we’re together
The sun is starting to shine
I’m yours and you are mine
How can it get any better

Sometimes it’s hard just to take a fall
But for you I would risk it all

Ever since the day we met
I know that you were heaven sent
Baby you were just my type
Missing link, yeah Mr.Right
Love wasn’t a friend of mine
Till You Came Along, You Came Along
We really belong

Sometimes it’s hard just to take a fall
But for you I would risk it all

Chorus

Set List

My sets are usually 45-90 minutes long. 

The songs that I include are originals from my albums Long Road and The Back Room, as well as songs I have never recorded and new songs I am writing. I also will do some select covers that I switch up to have a more bluesy feel.
