herself how to produce songs.
Since winning the It’s Your Shot Contest in 2015 for the track “Crazy,” Diamond has gone
through a winding road of sound, writing and performing pop and electronic hits. What comes next is a
transformation that has happened with all great pop artists; understanding a moment or a
feeling, and seeing it through to the next iteration of their artistry. Diamond has been on a
journey of unravelling and rediscovery that’s led to immense sonic and personal growth.
Diamond’s newest work, written over the past year, and produced in quarantine, still
traverses traditional pop song pathways. Instead of adding electronic flourishes and
elaborate production, Diamond has stripped down each track to its essential elements,
letting her vulnerability shine through composition and lyrics.
It is a challenge to understand yourself amid the clutter of the world. Even one second of
clarity feels like it can be taken away. But this, in essence, is what being a person and an
artist is truly all about: growth. The resolve and refusal to remain a certain way, to be static,
comes at a risk but perhaps has the best payoff possible when it comes true.
