With a vision unmistakable and the music to make you forget your worries and move every muscle in your body, Mark Diamond is one of the hottest new artist to watch says us.
When asked about this release he had this to say:
“Making this music video was honestly one of the most fun days of my career so far. I had an amazing team who really allowed and encouraged me to be myself. I think this showcases a side of me that not many people get to see. I decided early on in the process of this video that I wanted to handle wardrobe myself and ended up feeling great about it in the end. With something as simple as clothing, I want to be as honest as possible. Also, I hope you get a good smile out of it.”
At 25 years old, Mark Diamond is a Seattle native who 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. Up until recently, Mark, now based in Los Angeles, was living in Seattle and working at a 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.”
“Hummingbird” follows Diamond’s debut EP Hummingbird One, released in the Spring, which Ones To Watch hailed as “an impeccable EP filled with indie-pop perfection.” Hummingbird One features fan-favorite tracks “Steady” and “Road.” Not to mention, Diamond has amassed almost 2 million monthly listeners on Spotify and counting – in case you didn’t take our word for it, everyone else seems to think he’s hot shit too.
