Diana Anaid has an electronic press kit on her official website, featuring performance and interview clips, and even some juggling. Anaid talks about being a “woman on a mission” as a performer, songwriting, pressure to write hit songs — which she doesn’t care about, and wanting to be happy.
“I feel like I’m a person just like everybody else,” Diana said. “But I’ve got a passion. I’ve wanted to sing since I was tiny, tiny, and I wanted to perform for people as well, since I was little. I’m a woman on a mission.”
As for her songwriting process, Diana said, “With ‘Last Thing’, that song sort of just developed. I didn’t actually know what it was about until I finished writing it. Then I kind of realized that it was about how free you feel when you’re not in a relationship that is stifling. Usually I write my songs I know what the hell I’m talking about, but sometimes it takes a while to get to the end and I realize oh, that’s what that was about.”
Don’t look for Diana to have a short shelf life in the business. “I’ll never give up music because of the amazing people that come up to me and tell me how much my songs mean to them,” she said. “When people come up to you and they’ve used your song in their private worlds or it’s a song they ever did anything spectacular to, if they made love to my song or something like that, it just moves me incredibly and makes me want to keep doing what I’m doing.”
