“The six-string siren”, Diana Rein is taking her “Queen Of My Castle” Tour to Alva’s Showroom, in San Pedro, California on Sunday, September 29. The rising blues artist will take the stage at 4 p.m. The tour is in support of her most recent Gulf Coast Records’ release Queen Of My Castle.
Rein, a native of Romania, is fresh off a sold-out concert at the historic Merc theatre in Temecula, California. This past July she performed before thousands at Romania’s popular Open Air Blues Festival. Queen Of My Castle, of course, is the much-anticipated follow-up to her critically-acclaimed 2016 platter Long Road, which dropped this past June.
Queen Of My Castle
The fifteen-track disc was co-produced by Michael Leasure of the Walter Trout Band and was mixed by Lincoln Clapp, perhaps best known for his work on Texas Flood by Stevie Ray Vaughan. Vaughan, unsurprisingly, is one of Rein’s biggest influences. (For a detailed review of her Queen Of My Castle album click here.)
Currently based in Temecula, California, the singer-songwriter and musician began her career playing acoustic rhythm guitar in Chicago, Illinois where she was raised. On an interesting side note, Rein was also an actress. Under the name Daiana Campeanu she appeared alongside Macaulay Culkin in the motion pictures “Home Alone” and “Home Alone 2 – Lost In New York.” She played his sister Sondra McCallister. Her rockin’ resume is also highlighted by two additional full-length CDs and several singles. Her premiere platter, The Back Room, dropped in 2007.
Alva’s Showroom is located at 1417 W. 8th Street. Tickets are $20 each. Additional information can be obtained by calling (310) 833-7538 or visiting the event website. For more information about Diana Rein herself, you can visit her official website.
