Lavender Diamond 

Imagine Our Love


Lavender Diamond
Imagine Our Love
(Matador)
A few elements give LA-based Lavender Diamond a quick first step into your heart. The classically trained voice of Becky Stark has the purity and openness of a sweet virtuoso. Steve Gregoropoulos’s arranging delivers an aroma of parlour music, his authoritative piano saving the tunes from drifting into hippie-dippie land. A handy crew of symphony players emerges at key moments, like “I’ll Never Lie Again,” with focus on each instrument. The 1970s English band Renaissance came at pop from a similarly schooled background, maintaining some bombast. Lavender Diamond pursues simplicity and beauty as if they were the distillation of all that is good.
