#Montefamousreview: Diana Anaid – My Queen. Dedicated to all the strong woman in her life, each of the 11 tracks brings a message of empowerment and determination. Diana’s vocal range on the album demonstrates how versatile she is. At times sounding like Kate Bush mixed with Alanis Morissette with a sprinkling of Kate Ceberano and Kasey Chambers, you are in for a journey of music euphoria. The feel of the “My Queen” is one of homage to the great female rock albums of the 90’s dragged dazzlingly into 2017. The album will get you dancing, humming and motivated and wanting to play it on repeat all day. It is the #Montefamous must have album for November!
