LA Rocker Lets Her Inner Wild Vixen Make a Sassy Introduction

Los Angeles, CA – Standing on the verge of an explosive and lengthy music career is the blindingly beautiful, pop/rock powerhouse DIAMANTE, who is releasing her scorching single and music video, “Savage.” This latest cut is an energy-driven smash, full of attitude, killer beats, sexy vocals and in-your-face lyrics. Guaranteed to evoke non-stop head banging, “Savage” shows the singer coming into her own as a young top-notch, award-winning artist.

“Impossible” has garnered close to 240,000 views and counting, her infectious single and video recently “Goodbye” premiered on her VEVO-certified YouTube channel along with a just announced VEVO Live Performance Series. This teen just acquired Twitter verified status with a fast growing base of over 43,000 followers. With thousands of national and international doting fans fired up for another dose, the singer’s popularity continues to soar.

Showing her mature side and even a little skin, “Savage” depicts a fearless woman who knows what she wants and how to get it. In this first-class music video, directed by Adam Domenici with CODENAME Pictures, DIAMANTE teamed up with the popular up-and-coming alternative/rock/pop band False Puppet to play her lead boys. Acting as a feisty heartbreaker, DIAMANTE toys with the boys’ emotions as she works her magic in the bar, making them think that she wants them and then leaves them pining and confused. The burgeoning rock star deemed this “her coming of age song” showing that she is no longer the young teen artist of her past. Unveiling her daring look, DIAMANTE dons her lighter blonde locks and toned figure which makes her statuesque features stand out.

Creating the melody entirely, the sassy singer reached out to composers Joshua Hernandez and Kevin Savigar for prodigious instrumentals with the legendary Kenny Aronoff on drums. Produced by Kevin Savigar (Rod Stewart, Daughtry, Lita Ford), “Savage” showcases DIAMANTE’s spine chilling vocal range as she delivers intense conviction and raw honesty. The lyrics “Hell yea, I’m a wild heart, couldn’t catch me even if they tried” ring in the start of the hook and shoots the song’s energy through the roof. Rock lovers are surely in for a treat with this track.

Now a resident of the Entertainment Capitol, Diamante Bovelli is originally an East Coast girl so her no-mess, straightforward attitude comes out in her music. With an edgy style, reminiscent of Pat Benatar and Debbie Harry, DIAMANTE channels vintage rock in her music and fashion. Her uniquely seasoned voice makes this sultry songstress a standout artist in today’s sea of gimmicks and imitators.

Since her early years, DIAMANTE has always been invested in music and has been singing and performing since she was a child. As one of the most hard-working teens in the industry, DIAMANTE won the Ernie Ball Battle of the Bands granting her an opening slot at the Van Warped Tour, performed across the country on the “Age of Rebellion Southern California Tour” and the East and West Coast leg of the “No Bully Tours America.”

This rising artist released her super single and music video “Impossible,” which received radio spins on KIIS FM in Los Angeles, New York, Mexico, UK, and Australia. Earlier this year, she showed her compassionate side at the House of Blues Summer Bash in San Diego in a philanthropic effort to raise funds for Tunes for Tots of Southern California and Make-A-Wish America.

Women of Hard Rock & Metal – Janis Joplin

2367085The voice of Janis Joplin, in my opinion, has never, ever, bean duplicated, nor has any female Rock vocalist even come light years close. The raspy, sand papered and bluesy vocals of Janis Joplin has always sounded magical to me. The raw emotion that Janis Joplin exhibited vocally will always come through to me as honest and true. Janis Joplin was an all encompassing Rock legend – singer, songwriter and guitarist. 

I never like to look back at any Rock music legend and wonder what could have been, if tragedy did not strike. Like so many Rock stars and in some cases, icons, that have passed before their time,  I accept the gift of music that these musicians left behind, for the world to enjoy forever. Janis Joplin has left us with her songs and her gifted voice. How wonderful it is, to be able to reach for Janis Joplin at any time and listen away to one of the most powerful voices in all of Rock music history! I cannot tell you how many times I will listen to Janis Joplin, smack dab in the middle of listening to Metal bands like Helloween and Kiss! In doing this, it reminds me that there still is an unparalleled female Rock voice that I can turn to and enjoy. Janis Joplin’s voice and music will set me straight, reminding me of real Rock roots, where Hard Rock was born from.

“Me and Bobby McGee” is a song I kick back to while enjoying the story telling approach of Hard Rock, as only Janis Joplin can deliver. “Mercedes Benz” is easily as relevant a song today as it was in the early 1970’s. “Piece of My Heart”, for me, is as groundbreaking of a Hard Rock song as there ever could be. Musically, the formula for the foundation of Hard Rock was in place – it was Janis Joplin that took this song to another Rock stratosphere with her thrilling and bluesy vocals. From her musical beginnings with Big Brother & the Holding Company to her solo career, Janis Joplin was all along – carving out a path for future female Rock vocalists and female Rock musicians. Janis Joplin was a star of Psychedelic Rock, yet she forever is a star in the Rock and Hard Rock genres as well. Janis Joplin’s accomplishments and place in Rock music history can never be measured, her legacy can only be revered.
