Singer's Punchy Lyrics Hit Back

Who: Diana ah Naid
Where: QWB - Queens Wharf Brewery
When: Sunday March 28, 2004

DIANA AH NAID has discouraging advice from an early audience member to thank for her breakthrough hit single I Go Off.

``I came off stage and there was this man, 40, who said I should give it up because I don't go off, so I wrote about it,'' Ah Naid said.

``I wouldn't say anything like that to a young person trying to start out.'' Ah Naid began writing songs when she was nine years old following the death of her mother.

She released the debut single I Go Off in 1993, offering punchy in-your-face acoustics.

After settling in Eastern Australia as a teen, Ah Naid picked up the guitar and began penning her own tunes and wrote about things close to her head and to her heart.

She picked up nominations for Best Female Performer and Best Independent Release at the ARIA AWARDS in 2000.

She will perform on the wharf at THE BREWERY on Sunday with support from CORNS'TALK. The show starts at 2pm and entry is free.

A tour of the US is set for this year.
