Armand Margjeka – Alive

Growing up in Tropoja, a tiny village in Albania, a mixtape of American rock somehow fell into Armand Margjeka’s lap. “Maybe my sister brought it back from university,” he says. “I don’t remember, but hearing Elvis, Fats Domino, Jerry Lee Lewis and Little Richard changed my life.”

This tape took him on a journey of discovery and he has since made his way to Birmingham, Alabama. Here, he has written, performed and produced and is now embarking on a solo endeavor after a two year stint with alt-country group Buffalo Black. He is being compared to Iron & Wine and Bon Iver and I am enchanted by his calm confidence and sweet melodies. His debut full-length Margo Margo is set to be released this August.
