"Diana’s a rock ‘n’ roll firecracker… a totally passionate one-off'" Michael Smith - Rhythms

"'My Queen' has all the heartache, wit, poetry and honesty of her most well-known work."  MJ O'Neill-TheMusic

"...wistful and edgy, rebellious and arty, relentlessly creative..with an amazing voice." 100% Rock

 
"The spirit is honest, heartfelt and pleads with listeners to, well, listen.." MusicLove 


"The Australian equivalent of Alanis Morissette, the alternative rock/pop on display is world class." OverDrive

 "The feel of "My Queen” is one of homage to the great female rock albums of the 90’s dragged dazzlingly into 2017. " Monte Famous Mondays

 “…enough radio-friendliness at play to threaten a real crossover to the mainstream.” Shane Pinnegar

 “It might have been 20 years since Diana Anaid kicked down the doors with her debut single, I Go Off, but the years haven’t dimmed the effusive energy- My Queen rocks! Diana practically bursting out of her skin as she reaches that much further, higher, deeper trying to express the idea, the emotion.” Michael Smith

It’s a bold vision to encompass, but one suited to an artist of Anaid’s pedigree. Her command of rhythm, lyric, and melody are as strong as ever on My Queen, whether it’s on the heartsick ruminations of Cant Apologise or the ruthless Wish You Well. Better Girl holds completely true to the album’s modus operandi- if you told me that it was released anytime between the 1970s and today, I wouldn’t bat an eyelid.” HappyMag

"With acoustic in hand the beautiful singer/songwriter sang her way through well-constructed songs about life, love, ups and downs and everything in-between. Coming across as the Australian equivalent of Alanis Morissette, the alternative rock/pop on display is world class." Overdrive Mag 2017

“First up, the wistful and edgy, rebellious and arty, relentlessly creative Diana Anaid delivered a set of tracks from her new album My Queen and older favourites, relying solely on her acoustic guitar and amazing voice.” 100% Rock Mag 2017

“Diana Anaid has a powerful, emotive voice that she used to full effect, accompanied by just an acoustic guitar. She had an unusual upbringing as the youngest of three siblings to a single parent, her itinerant, hippie father, and that nomadic semi-feral upbringing influences her feminist anthems. As the opener for Adam Ant, with her up-tempo folk-rock anthems she certainly ‘went off’, commanding the respect of the crowd.” 

“..a powerful, emotive voice..with up-tempo folk-rock feminist anthems.”

“It's pleasing to see some Dandy Highwayman-inspired fashion on bods milling around Palais Theatre tonight. Diana Anaid performs solo on guitar to open and displays impressive multi-tasking skills when she shares the inspiration behind Perfect Family, keeping perfect time while simultaneously playing this song on guitar. At song's close, Anaid dedicates this catchy number to the guy who made the video, saying it was great to see him just before this show after so many years. I Go Off is more manic than we remember it. Poor Anaid tells us she has tonsillitis and is "singing through it" as best she can.”

“Diana Anaid was up next, shes been around a long time now. I remember hearing stuff years ago and thinking she was very much like Ani DiFranco, I didn’t get that last night. She has found her voice and it is one of a kind. It was a great performance. “

Starting in 1997, Anaid’s self-funded and self-produced feral-folk debut stood out amongst the hip hop and teen-pop that was dominating the 90’s airwaves, spawning the #1 alternative hit I Go Off, and leaving many to
wonder if this young mum was just another one trick pony.
Diana’s follow up I Don’t Think I’m Pregnant saw her receive her 5th ARIA nomination and her second inclusion in Triple J's Hottest 100, crossing into commercial radio with Don’t Believe In Love and
silencing those who had placed her in the one-hit-wonder pile.
With comparisons to Liz Phair, P.J Harvey and Ani DiFranco, Diana Ah Naid (as she was known until changing it to the palindromic Anaid) in 2004 cracked the U.S market with Last Thing and her ‘No Boys Allowed’ campaign, which saw the single climb into the Billboard Top40.

Her first album in 7 years, with video clip for first single Can’t Apologise by Rock n Roll Hall of Fame recipient Nick Egan (Oasis, Duran Duran ), My Queen was mastered in the UK by Tim Young ( Massive Attack/Madonna )  and its list of impressive contributors help to create the album of Diana's career;

Co-written with longtime guitarist Nathan Correy, produced by Aria Award Winning Steve James (Torah Wilcox, Screaming Jets, Skunkhour, Sex Pistols) the album has already earned praise such as 


"Diana’s a rock ‘n’ roll firecracker… a totally passionate one-off'"- Michael Smith - Rhythms

"My Queen' has all the heartache, wit, poetry and honesty of her most well-known work." - MJ O'Neill-TheMusic

  "The feel of “My Queen” is one of homage to the great female rock albums of the 90’s dragged dazzlingly into 2017. “ Monte Famous Mondays Album Review

“It’s a bold vision to encompass, but one suited to an artist of Anaid’s pedigree.

My Queen follows on from the successful release of singles Can't Apologise and Better Girl which both received video premiers by TheMusic, airplay across the board from  Double J to Triple M and ABC, and plenty of 'Love The Single, Can't Wait for the Album' comments.

The video for Better Girl has been described by industry stalwarts as an "incredibly powerful video" (MGM) and fans have called it "So amazing. Beautiful song and film clip that many transgender will relate to"

     
Diana's career highlights include US Billboard Top 40 placement, 5 ARIA nominations, 2 inclusions in Triple J's Hottest 100 and sets at the BDO, Falls, Vans Warped, Woodford and Byron Blues Fest.
