Diana Anaid returns to the Mighty Bush to launch her incandescent new single, Leaving Town. Catch her on the outdoor stage with her band in tow as she presents leaving town, from her recent album, My Queen. With support from the uniquely talented musicians Hannah & Cash!

In 1997 Diana Anaid exploded onto the Australian music scene. From the small alt-village of Nimbin in Northern NSW, Anaid was fearless, punchy and a dynamic performer with oodles of natural born talent. Her debut album - Diana ah Naid stood out amongst the hip hop and teen-pop that was dominating the 90’s airwaves, spawning the #1 hit I Go Off. That year she opened the ARIA Awards armed just with guitar and her powerful voice setting her place firmly within the mainstream, but yet she was not like the mainstream, her untameable presence had a anarchistic independent vibe which remains in her music to this day. Her follow up album I Don’t Think I’m Pregnant saw her receive her 5th ARIA nomination and her second inclusion in Triple J's Hottest 100. With critical excitement and comparisons to Liz Phair, PJ Harvey and Ani DiFranco, she cracked the U.S market in 2004 with Last Thing, which saw the single climb into the US Billboard Top 40.

My Queen is Anaid’s first album in 7 years. In imagining this record she wondered “how does one create a classic rock album in the 21st century, an album timeless to the foibles of musical fads and fashions”? The first step was taken when Anaid fortuitously met Grammy nominated and ARIA producer of the Year, Steve James, (UK) in 2016. James had famously worked on many projects that are feted as classic albums in the history of music the world over, including The Sex Pistols, Siouxsie and the Banshees, The Saints and The Jam. When Diana described her album vision to James they both knew they had found musical kindred spirits. Steve James wanted to make a record that sounded timeless, a record you could put on in 20 years and not be able to date, an album that would stand the test of time and remain just bloody good whenever it was played. So excited was James by Diana’s undeniable musical talent that for the first time in his career he hooked his muse up with his UK network, to help deliver My Queen. First off the rank was having My Queen mastered in the UK by Tim Young ( Massive Attack/Madonna ). Next off the rank was Rock n Roll Hall of Fame recipient Nick Egan, (Oasis, Duran Duran ) who created the album cover art and shot the first video release from the album, Can’t Apologise.

Together they have created the album of Diana's career. My Queen is indeed a classic timeless rock album that will probably outlive it’s creators.
