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, Billboard for Artist on the Verge, and NPR’s Songs We Love, which proclaimed, This L.A. indie-folk band has a summer festival anthem on its hands. 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.
