Mark Diamond Debuts ‘Hummingbird’

By  | 

Artist/songwriter/guitarist Mark Diamond has unveiled his latest song “Hummingbird.” The song is perfect for any pop lovers who especially like retro influences and breathy vocals. “Hummingbird” arrives after releasing his debut EP Hummingbird One released this past spring.“This song was the birth of a new version of myself,” Diamond says in a press release. “It was letting a side of me out that I didn’t know was there. I’ll never forget that moment when I started singing the melody. Honestly, I think I just started laughing at first because it felt so freeing and different than anything I’d done before. I think as creatives and as people, we all have multiple versions of ourselves. It’s important to let some of those see the light of day sometimes.”

The 25-year-old Seattle native grew up listening to Tom Petty, Hootie & The Blowfish, The Beatles, R.E.M and Robbie Williams with his dad in his 1969 Chevy Malibu.  Diamond made the big move to Los Angeles after working at a Seattle coffee shop for the last four years. He has been hard at work on his upcoming project with his debut song, “Steady,” leading the way. The song is included in a very large arsenal of finished tracks that he completed in 24 days with talented writer and producer Richard Craker, writing and recording in both London and Los Angeles. With his music, Mark wants to make people feel every emotion possible. “I have never had more fun making music in my entire life. Music should make people feel good more than it makes them feel bad. Not necessarily ‘happy’ songs, but songs that make you feel better about life than when you started listening to it.”
