Multiple platinum winner, hit songwriter and producer Lee Aaron presents her new album “Diamond Baby Blues”. The classic hard rock and heavy blues album features 12 new recordings anchored in the tradition of the musical giants of the late 60s and 70s. The heavy riff “Diamond Baby”, the epic ballad “The Best Thing” and the glam rock pounding “American High” mix effortlessly with the creative reinterpretations of Deep Purple’s “Mistreated”, the Koko Taylor hymn “I’m a woman “and a surprising Rolling Stonesmoderate interpretation of Janet Jackson’s” Black Cat. ” The album, recorded together with the canadian rock legend John Webster, is a prime example of ther signature mix of powerhouse vocals, great guitars, organic keyboards and a rhythm section that rocks as hard as it rocks. If there is one line from “Diamond Baby Blues” that could best describe the artist, vocalist, songwriter, producer, creator and interpreter the world has come to know and love as Lee Aaron, it might be “I’m a Woman…I can cut stone with a pin”.
