Magic Man
Magic Man
Magic Man is the creation of childhood friends Alex Caplow (vocals) and Sam Vanderhoop Lee (guitars and keyboards) who, while spending a summer abroad trading labor for room and board on a series of French organic farms, flushed out the music that would comprise Magic Man’s 2010 self-released album Real Life Color. The album gradually made its way across the internet like a slow-burning wildfire until it caught the attention of music blogs including: Pigeons and Planes, All Things Go, and Pitchfork.

Shortly after the release of Real Life Color Caplow and Lee decided to take Magic Man on the road and that is when they added high school friend Daniel Radin on bass, college friend Justine Bowe on keyboard and Joey Sulkowski on drums. As the exuberance of Magic Man’s new live set began transforming the band's sound, Sam and Alex decided to retreat to the Providence, RI in 2012 to a flat they called the "Fox Den" to refine their material to the anthemic propulsion that defined the band's resulting Fox Den Demos, which comprises the backbone of the band's first proper studio effort, You Are Here.
Scavenger Hunt
Scavenger Hunt
Los Angeles is a city brimming with opportunity. When Philadelphia native and established music composer Dan Mufson moved to LA in 2011 he quickly realized that in this city creative minds often meet at opportune moments. Every name and every phone number increases the odds of achieving a goal, or helping someone with theirs. Dan likened the process to a scavenger hunt. When he first heard the enchanting voice of Jill Lamoureux -- herself a Wichita, Kansas transplant -- he knew he needed to work with her. So he called Jill the very next day and invited her to his studio to lend her voice to project he was producing. The multi-instrumentalist producer and the jazz/folk singer enjoyed the writing process so much they decided to collaborate on a recording project. For Dan and Jill, the Scavenger Hunt led them to one another. Now the duo are forging an exciting, dreamy electro-pop sound that is attracting listeners on both coasts. Less than 48 hours after releasing their debut single "Lost" it was played on University Of Pennsylvania's WXPN. Since then, the track has received blog acceptance by Pigeons and Planes, Indie Shuffle and The Burning Ear. Scavenger Hunt's first EP is slated for a 2014 release.
The duo make their debut with the single "Lost". Stay tuned for their EP in early 2014.
