Like a banjo player and a DJ rocking a club show in a barn, Magic Giant is inspired by its mission of moving bodies and souls. The four-piece just wrapped up self-producing its debut EP, managing to convince world-class musicians like Rashawn Ross of Dave Matthews Band and Spencer Ludwig of Capital Cities to record on the record at their studio in Venice, CA. The band and has filled rooms elbow-to-elbow at every LA show including, most recently, the legendary Troubadour. A brand new band by most standards, Magic Giant has hit the ground running, playing festivals such as Sweetlife—headlined by Phoenix, Passion Pit, and Kendrick Lamar—and Life Is Beautiful—headlined by Kings of Leon, The Killers, and Imagine Dragons—and continues to build a reputation for its dancy live shows and anthemic sing-alongs. Drawing from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences, the crew has evolved into a folk-electronic band that includes Austin Bis on lead vocals; John Zambricki on banjo, mandolin, and fiddle; Brian Zaghi on upright bass and acoustic guitar; and AJK, the drumming DJ. Magic Giant has been featured on media outlets ranging from NBC News to The Washington Post and recently ranked between Beck and Tiësto on Metrolyrics' What's Trending.
