Diana Rose's debut self-titled CD is a glimpse into her life experiences. In her distinct alto voice, she 'tells it like it is' so to speak. Her honesty often times comes across as sassy, but at the same time she isn't afraid to show us her vulnerable, tender side. One of the great things about this album is it's diverse exhibition of musical styles. Rose takes blues, country, funk, samba, and soul, and somehow makes them all belong together on one album. Perhaps the reason for this variety of musical styles is that, in the words of the artist herself, 'my lyrics are what give life to my music...they help dictate the style and feel of each song.' Add this album to your CD collection. You won't regret it!
