Dilana's Exclusive Interview - Popular Female Singers Today

Updated on August 18, 2011

Dilana Will Go Down As One Of The Greatest Female Singers EVER

Today I want to introduce you to one of the most popular new female singers-2010, Dilana. Dilana can sing like it's nobody's business, and she is one of the top new female singers on the music scene today.

Not only can Dilana belt out any tune, she has a multitude of fabulous musicians backing her up on different tracks on the new album, InsideOut. The drummer, Adrian Young, is formerly of No Doubt. Wait, what about the guitarist, Mick Mars? He played for Mötley Crüe. Let us not forget the keyboardist Rami Jaffee (Foo Fighters, Coheeed and Cambria) and the violinist, Scarlet Rivera. Scarlet Rivera has played with Bob Dylan and the Indigo Girls. She is one of the best female violinists that you will ever have the pleasure of hearing. This combination of outrageously fabulous talent can only create an explosion of epic proportions.

If InsideOut doesn't knock you out, I don't know if you have many emotions. I would think that it would be very hard for anyone to not feel monumentally moved by this work of art.

By some, Dilana may be considered one of the popular female pop singers. I see her falling in the rock category more than the pop category.

Some of you may know Dilana from Rockstar Supernova. She gained a big following during that show. It was at this time that she became one of the new female singers of our time. 2010 has been her year. You could consider her one of the best female singers-2010.

Since Rockstar Supernova Dilana has gone on to:

  • Release one of the best albums ever, InsideOut.
  • Star in the new movie, Angel Camouflaged. Not only does Dilana star it it, she won the Best Actress Award for a feature film at the International Action on Film Festival 2010.
Also, Dilana is scheduled to appear in two more movies: "Silence" and "Here After". Dilana will be co-producer for the music for both movies, and there will be soundtracks for both. I hope that some of Dilana's songs will be featured on those soundtracks as they are on Angels Camouflaged.

Heck Yeah!

Money generated from this article will be automatically donated to one of Dilana's favorite charities, The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation.

Dilana loves anyone who supports others. A few of her other causes are:

Dilana is truly a wonderful person. The world is a better place because she is here.

What a spirit this woman has.

Love 'er. Love 'er. Love 'er. (O;

Q - This album, InsideOut, has a very diverse feel to it, Dilana. I love all the songs on this album but I'm curious to know if we will hear more songs like "The Question". Of all the songs on the album, "The Question" has to be my favorite. I LOVE that your voice is the central instrument more so than it was in many of the other tracks.

  • A - Thanks! It has to be my fave too! And the answer is yes! It's fun to be free and I was on this track. Actually that vocal track was just the guide track that I was singing along to when we were recording bass n drums. After I heard it, I didn't wanna touch it. So that's a 1 take. Many of the lyrics and even the ending rave part was a complete improv!

Q - Dilana, I get the feeling that you are a woman who likes to do things her way. By the way, I do admire this. Anyway, it is a pretty well known fact that you have had issues with labels in the past. At this point in time do you see your next album being released independently?

  • A - HAHA! With age and experience comes wisdom. Yes, I like doing things my way but I have learned to open my mind and heart to suggestions too. So it just depends on the situation really. Labels n issues go hand in hand, especially these days as labels have changed drastically. It is no longer about the artist, it's all about the sales (money!). I am planning on releasing some trax independently but there is some interest from a label in S Africa to do a deal so I'm taking a step at a time.

Dilana Performing Mother, Mother - on Rockstar Supernova

I have never been a big fan of covers. I find it rare when a fabulous cover is done. Dilana is one of a few singers that can do a cover as well, if not better, than the original artist.

Dilana Rocks the House

After just finishing a review and an interview with VK Lynne, Whiskey or Water, I sat down last night -with my boyfriend- to do the same for Dilana. We warmed up with some Dilana on Last.fm and then we played InsideOut. We did nothing but sit on his couch, relaxing with a couple beers, just listening.

I think this is an incredible album. This will definitely go down as one of my all time favorites. The energy that oozes from this CD is dazzling. The band that accompanies Dilana for this album is exceptional as well. I cannot imagine anyone who has a love for rock and roll to not thoroughly enjoy this album.

Dilana is one of the best new female singers on the music scene!

      What a great lens!!! I was a huge fan of Dilana's on Rockstar Supernova, but honestly never took the time to follow what she's done after that. I am so glad that it appears her career has taken off. Because of seeing your lens about her, I'm now looking through her website, blog, and twitter stream.
