Profile Do you miss how HEART used to sound in their glorious ’80s years? Got an aspirin for you… This fantastic duo comprised of Diana DeWitt & Robin Randall, has released a couple of wonderful albums that makes them heiresses of the throne. While the very good debut is more rough and direct, ‘New Moon Rising’ is a bible of polished Melodic Rock with capitals, top class songwriting, superb musicianship and clear production.

Diana DeWitt’s melodic sense, out of this world intense voice, goes from powerful rockers to smooth ballads like a fish in the water. She wrote songs with Robbie Buchanan, Dennis DeYoung, Barry DeVorzon, Giorgio Moroder, David Pack and countless more, as well did vocals arrangements, duets & backing vocals and co-writing songs with people like BJ Thomas, Robert Tepper, Mickey Thomas, Mark Free, Michael McDonald, etc., and numerous movie songs & commercials. Her partner Robin Randall, displays a skilled keyboard training and stellar songwriting ability.

All these songs were written by them between 1984/1998, some recorded by other artists like MARK FREE (The Last Time, Dying For Your Love) or JAMES CHRISTIAN (Leave Well Enough Alone). ‘Tomorrow Doesn’t Matter Tonight’ in example, was penned by Robin in 1984 and later recorded by STARSHIP. Also included here is the wonderful ballad ‘Bless A Brand New Angel’ featured on the television series BAYWATCH. Originally released only in Japan (1998), it was reissued via their own USA label in 2003 with 2 different tracks and is……Highly Recommended.
