Q&A with Mark Diamond:
Casablanca Sunset: What motivated you to release Hummingbird as a 2-part EP?
Mark Diamond: Honestly, I chose which songs went where based off of how they sounded together. Hummingbird Two feels more mature to me than the first EP.
CS: Does the Hummingbird have any significant meaning?
MD: Hummingbirds mean a lot to me. It’s kind of a symbol in my family, and they were always around me growing up as I lived on a lavender farm. They always stopped me in my tracks, and I as I got older I started to question why that was.
CS: What’s something new from this EP that distinguishes itself from your previous releases?
MD: This EP I wasn’t holding anything back. Not that I have been in the past… but I mean this EP showcases a lot of emotions all at once. I feel a lot of emotions all at once. So it feels very honest.
CS: How does being from Seattle influence your sound?
MD: Seattle influences me in so many ways. Not only does the weather make you a little depressed sometimes, but I think being stuck inside a few months out of there year forces you to either be a little creative or just be bored. I visit Seattle all the time when I’m feeling like I need a fresh breath of air.
CS: Plans for the rest of 2019?
MD: Going to be finishing the year strong. We have loads of visuals on the way. I’ll be doing a bunch of shows between now and the end of the year. Hoping to announce a run of shows here soon! A few other surprises here and there as well…
Thanks, Mark! Look forward to seeing what you have in store!
