Bio

MAGIC NIC was not born into a musical home.
Sheepishly self-taught, he left a cold town on the New England plateau to find it on the inner-west stages of Sydney.

Between belting over three part harmonies of garage-pop outfit Easy Street and transcending the astral plane with experimental noise rockers Greyhound, Magic Nic was slowly building a collection of heart sung scripts so he could stand alone and croon over his creaking, soulful guitar.

Summoning the ghost of Woody, the spirit of Chet and a borrowed electric guitar, he somehow emulsified it all to a warbling cassette tape.

Give me more of this intoxicating home-brewed blues! Magic Nic doesn't loosen his grip on your attention across these three and a bit minutes.

This is a really gorgeous track - love the crunch to the recording, love the build in the song, the power in the vox and the way its so bare bones but so captivating. Cheers!
