“Having built a reputation for their infectious and upbeat sound, blending folk instruments (banjo, fiddle, harmonica) with big drums and dance rhythms, the band leaves a lasting impression on listeners.” – Paste

“…the band is inspiring mass dance-alongs” – Billboard

“Magic Giant captures the energy and spirit of the past few waves of upbeat, passionate indie-folk.” – NPR

In the spring of 2016, Austin Bisnow (lead vocals), Zambricki Li (banjo, violin, harmonica), and Zang (acoustic guitar, cello) welcomed nature into the fold as their unofficial fourth member. Magic Giant converted a shuttle bus into a solar-powered mobile recording studio and set out to record In the Wind. Inside a Redwood tree off the coast of California, within a tunnel by Snoqualmie Pass, on an airstrip in Marble, Colorado, and in a wild daisy field near Crested Butte are just a few of the places the trio recorded their debut. They ended their recording journey at their home studio “The Bunker,” in Silver Lake, Los Angeles. The instrumentation includes (get ready…) orchestral drums, banjo, trumpet, saxophone, harmonica, synthesizers, electric bass, cello, viola, violin, dobro, lap steel, mandolin, and more. The three band members found themselves serendipitously through social media, and when their virtuoso talents were combined, it created a sound that was incredibly vibrant and booming with life.
