Diamante - the extravagant diva of modern hard and alternative rock will visit Baltics as part of her “UK / Europe Dream” tour. With iridescent sapphire hair, a show-stopping voice, runway-ready fashion swagger, and an empowering message, the American siren brings a new (and blue) fire to rock and alternative music.
Born in Boston but raised in Los Angeles, from the age of seven Diamante grew up inspired by writers J.K. Rowling and Stephen King, whose works incited a passion within this girl’s heart for creating poetry, short stories, and starring in school musical theater.
Diamante spent her teenage years cutting her teeth at local gigs on the Sunset Strip to become the powerhouse performer she is today. A disciple of P!nk, Avril Lavigne and Guns N’ Roses who doesn’t fall into rockstar excess. Instead she devoted every waking minute to honing a signature “hard rock sound with a modern alternative edge.”
This unique and undeniable approach paid back: in April, 2015 singles Good Bye and Bite Your Kiss have been released and soon she caught the attention of Better Noise Music who signed the artist. She hit the studio with super producer Howard Benson (My Chemical Romance, Halestorm, Motörhead, P.O.D., Three Days Grace, Apocalyptica, Kelly Clarkson, etc.) to record what would become her full-length debut, “Coming In Hot”. Haunted, Coming In Hot, Had Enough, Bulletproof are the most prominent compositions on the album.
The very same year Diamante undeniably stormed the scene with a #1 song at rock radio - her collaboration of Hear Me Now with Bad Wolves, which counts more than 70 million views on YouTube alone! The next three years she spents on extensive touring with bands like Three Days Grace, Breaking Benjamin, Chevelle, and Shinedown.
On May 7th of this year, a new full-length album "American Dream" has been released, in which Dimante once again teamed up with Howard Benson, and also invited to join "Three Days Grace" drummer Neil Sanderson. Diamante capitalized on her newfound ultimate creative freedom and independence by being her own CEO throughout every facet of the album process. On working with Benson and Sanderson, Diamante praises that they were instrumental in “bringing my stories to life and pushing me to embrace my vulnerabilities”.
A number of hits are presented to the audience: Obvious (in two versions), American Dream, Ghost Myself, I Love Myself for Hating You, as well as a collaboration between Diamante and Breaking Benjamin - a cover version of the Goo Goo Dools hit Iris.mAnd the responsiveness of the audience is not disappointing:
“Rock is STILL alive ladies and gentlemen! Diamante serves up in your face rock and roll though this entire album that is reminiscent of Halestorm, The Pretty Reckless, and countless others. We are so happy that bands like this are keeping rock and roll alive through this dry spell of music. Great job to the band for banging out these songs!”
