Australian rocker Diana Anaid’s first US single, “Last Thing,” from her debut album Beautiful Obscene, has become iTunes’ biggest Single of the Week ever.
The album, recently released in the United States on independent label Five Crowns Music, is currently among the top 25 pop albums on iTunes.
“Knowing that more people than ever before downloaded Last Thing from the iTunes site in just one week is absolutely fabulous,” said Diana, on tour in Los Angeles.
Writing songs since age nine, Diana’s music became her emotional outlet when the death of her mother sent her into a life of foster parents, charity organizations, food vouchers and uncertainty. Her unique guitar style, emotional lyrics and powerful voice have garnered Diana multiple ARIA Award nominations (Australia’s Grammy) and three Top 40 singles in her native Australia. With the release of Beautiful Obscene in the States she is poised to become the first female rocker to join the U.S. Aussie invasion that includes the likes of Jet, The Vines, The Everyones & The Living End.
Diana’s American debut is being released by music industry veteran Paul Palmer through his Five Crowns Music. Former co-owner of Trauma Records, Palmer launched the careers of No Doubt as well as Bush, and now has his support behind the raw talent of Diana Anaid.
She is currently on a cross country trip visiting radio stations and television morning shows and performing at concerts from Orlando to San Francisco. Diana has shared the stage with artists including Five for Fighting, The Calling, Gavin Degraw and Sister Hazel.
