Kathy Diamond is a funk/disco house singer-songwriter from London, England. She was born in Sheffield in the north of England. Her love for soul and disco started at an early age, gaining inspiration from Donna Summer.[1][2]

In 1993 Diamond decided to write and sing herself, collaborating different bands, DJs and producers.[1] In 2002 she wrote a Balearic song with house producers SWAG called "Miracles Just Might." After SWAG did not include it on their album Diamond decided to release the song herself. She pressed up a limited amount of white labels and distributed it. DJ Magazine said of the track, "If you like sweet beauty in your house music keep your eyes peeled because it's only going to get a limited release." Within a month another 12" single "Sunshine" was released, this time on the Idjut Boys' Cottage label with producer Maurice Fulton.
