Magic Giant

Like a banjo player and a DJ rocking a club show in a barn, Magic Giant is a band on a mission to move bodies and souls. The group kicked off 2015 with a performance on KEXP hosted by John Richards (credited for discovering The Lumineers' "Ho Hey"). They have since been featured on Spotify's New Music Tuesday and NPR's Songs We Love, which proclaimed, "This L.A. indie-folk band has a summer festival anthem on its hands."

The trio just wrapped up self-producing its debut EP, notably featuring Rashawn Ross of Dave Matthews Band and Spencer Ludwig of Capital Cities. The band's communal live shows are inspired by experiential groups like The Grateful Dead and events like Woodstock. Described by some as "rave-folk," Magic Giant has been turning clubs into dance parties on their maiden US headline tour, concluding with a full house at the legendary Troubadour in Los Angeles.

Magic Giant continues to build a reputation for its anthemic sing-alongs, blending organic instruments with big drums and electronic beats. The band is composed of Austin Bis on lead vocals; Zambricki Li on banjo, mandolin, and fiddle; and Brian Zaghi on upright bass and acoustic guitar.
