Armand Margjeka – HummingbirdRelease Date: June 10th, 2014
With 2014 comes the long-awaited release of Armand’s sophomore album Hummingbird. Conceived as An Exhibition of 10 Works, it represents a series of creative recording sessions with a diverse and talented core of musicians.
Hummingbird is the collective result of Margjeka’s production aesthetic complemented by three-time Grammy award winner Darrell Thorp (Radiohead, Beck, Outkast, Gnarls Barkley), Chris Steffen (Stereophonics, Ben Harper) and Eric Masse (Escondido, Rayland Baxter).
“Some call it getting up and going to work everyday, others illustrate it as feeding the monster. I’m not advocating some cheap cop-out like ‘rejection is art’, but rejection is innate to this world of exposing fears. The voice echoing ‘this isn’t good enough’ gives meaning/direction to my search and keeps me honest,” said Margjeka. Hummingbird is a beautiful product of that search.
