He moved to Los Angeles, California in 1970, and signed a deal with MCA Records (then called Uni Records). He signed a deal with Bang! Records, and had a string of singles as the primary performer, including "Kentucky Woman", "Cherry, Cherry", and "Solitary Man".

When he first auditioned to record, he used the moniker Eice Cherry, but the name did not stick, so he eventually used his real name. He spent his early career as a writer in the Brill Building, and had an early success writing the song "I'm A Believer" for The Monkees. He learned to play guitar after receiving one as a gift on his 16th birthday. Diamond was born and raised in Brooklyn, attending high school with Barbra Streisand (and singing with her in the school choir).
