Montreal pop R&B singer Sara Diamond is spending 2017 releasing singles about the ups and downs of love, and has already seen a major following sprout up on Spotify. Following the powerful single “Back to You” that focused on the pain of a break-up, Diamond unleashed her strong, affecting vocals on “Unsure”, a track about the uncertainties that plague one while dating. Her new single Stay A Little showcase another breathtaking vocal turn, entrancing the listener from the first note.
There was a time she thought music had forsaken her. A child star who had sold millions of records, Sara quickly became disenchanted with the grind and little control she had over her trajectory. But she was always born to be a performer. Now at 22 years old, Sara Diamond is ready to unleash original music that she wrote herself, exploring the world from her own perspective without any compromises.
Quote about ‘Stay A Little’ from Sara:
‘Stay a Little’ came about at around 5:00 am right after a breakup. Something in me told me to start writing, so I took out my notepad. The bulk of the writing came from that. It was probably one of the fastest, and more honest songs from our writing sessions. Really cathartic. Even recording it brought me back to the way I felt the night that I wrote it. ‘Stay a Little’ is about knowing the relationship is over for both of you, but hanging on out of fear, comfort, and not wanting to hurt the other person. Communication is key, and I have a hard time with it. So for a while I stayed, hoping I could rationalize my way out of what I was feeling. I told myself that I didn’t want to hurt him so I tried to make it work, but in reality, it probably hurt even more because I stayed even when my heart wasn’t in it. And, it was also the fear of being alone, not knowing if I’d ever know love like that again.
