Gulf Coast Records artist: Diana Rein - Queen Of My Castle - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Queen of My Castle, from Diana Rein and it's a solid blues rocker. Opening with Yes I Sing The Blues, a cool shuffle, Rein is up front on vocal and lays down solid blues drenched rock riffs. Backed by Michael Leisure on drums, Dave Osti on bass, and Drake Munkihald Shining on keys, a solid opener. Title track, Queen of My Castle is Rein's best vocal track with clean bluesy guitar riffs as accents. One Foot In is a lumbering rocker with a funky rhythm guitar line, solid vocals and a nice blues guitar lead. One of my favorite tracks on the release is driving rocker, It's You, with a springy guitar rhythm and a real nice bass line. Slick lead guitar riffs and nice backing vocals by Steve Polacek, Vaughn Polacek, Lincoln Clapp, Melissa Bonning, Julia Clapp and Mackenzie Clapp give the track just the right texture. R&B track, Chill of the Night is the definite radio track with it's perfect melody and smooth vocals. A full, rich organ solo by Shining leads into a stellar guitar solo by Rein giving this track a real sheen. Wrapping the release is instrumental, Zoe, my favorite track on the release with just the right amount of tension and clean and richly expressed guitar lead. Having the classic lines of a SRV instrumental, this is sure to be a fan favorite. Very nice closer.
