Burnside Album Details
Margjeka, Armand, Hummingbird CD
Armand Margjeka was born in Albania and raised on American music. The communist regime he grew up in might have been oppressive but somehow a mix tape of American rock'n'roll found its way into his hands. Now the Birmingham, Alabama musician/producer thrives on a fascination with the process of making great records; the intentional, incidental and accidental sounds that breathe life into a record and capture the imagination. Conceived as An Exhibition of 10 Works, Hummingbird represents a series of creative recording sessions with a diverse and talented core of musicians. It's Margjeka's production aesthetic complemented by three-time Grammy award winner Darrell Thorp (Radiohead, Beck), Chris Steffen (Stereophonics, Ben Harper) and Eric Masse (Escondido, Rayland Baxter).
