DIANA HUBBARD was born in London, the first child of L. Ron Hubbard (the founder of the Scientology) and composed sonatas for piano at age 6, then she attended the Royal Academy. Diana released her one and only album back in 1979 which is now released on CD for the first time. At the time Diana explained her motivation and inspiration for the album “I wanted to compose music that is ‘felt but not heard’, and revitalize the romantic aspects to jazz”.

BILLBOARD magazine gave the album a “Top Album Pick” at the time of release and described the album as a “light classic pop LP” and that the music is “mostly soft and pretty, drawing from many ethnic sources”.

Reviews

Musically she was discovered in 1976, and recorded this album in 1979. She herself said she wanted to make music that was felt, rather than heard, with romantic aspects of jazz. Diana wrote all the music herself, and received help from musicians such as Chick Corea, Stanley Clarke, John Goodsall, Michael Boddicker and Patrick Moraz. The music sounds like light classical with pop influences. Diana wrote an explanation for each song, and opener 'Rose Colored Lights' revolves around the yacht on the Mediterranean. The song was released on single the following year. The other tracks are in the same style. This album is now a rarity, and now appears on CD for the first time.

A much sought after album, the only album ever recorded by the daughter of L. Ron Hubbard, in a slightly classical poppy way.
