Even though at that time I was unsure about what
was happening. I always kind of knew no mat-
ter what, I was going to be forward. We’re not
stopping here at this point.
What your take on artists lip
syncing and bands that play
it raw and live?
DIAMANTE: I saw Lzzy from Halestorm talk
about this actually, not too long ago. And I know
that they don’t use any tracks at all, no click,
nothing. They just like go in there completely
raw. She said it’s that feeling of like, oh my God,
if we mess up, we mess up. And that’s that and
there’s no curtain. It’s, they are what they are.
And that she said..that’s like the most rock and
roll thing you can do. So I love that. I think that’s
“Never let anyone keep you down or put you down or
make you feel like you’re less than.” - Diamante
Do you have an advice for up and coming
girls in the industry who have a dream?
DIAMANTE: I would say, it’s really important to stand your ground and
know what you believe in and know who you are. Trust that and there’s going
to be, I think, in all areas of life, so many people telling you how to be what to
do. And you kind of have to just stick with your gut because you know what’s
best for you at the end of the day. Never let anyone keep you down or put you
down or make you feel like you’re less than.
What were Sundays at your house like
growing up? Was music always in the house?
DIAMANTE: Yeah, music was a huge part on both sides of my family. And
I remember spending summers in Mexico with my family over there. And it
didn’t have to be Sunday night, it could be any night of the week. It was party
time, you know, when they’re putting on like Madonna and the Police. They’re
all about that ad stuff. So I think that’s why I love the ad so much too, because
it kind of reminds me of growing up and all those family hangs and dinners.
And my grandfather was a classical pianist, and grand piano in delivering
with that house, he was always playing.
