Magic Music

Little Feat’s Bill Payne has found a kindred spirit in Magic Music, a top draw on the Colorado festival scene of the 1970s who released their acclaimed debut album in 2016. 

Payne played piano and organ on the band’s self-titled set, which reintroduces material written (but never recorded) by the pioneering band prior to their 1976 breakup. Following a digital and CD release last fall, Magic Music has just issued a vinyl LP.

Magic Music, a pioneering Colorado band of the 1970s that just released their debut album on vinyl, is currently being featured by Inform, a leading provider of premium, personalized video content. 

Formed in 1970, Magic Music played two of the earliest Telluride Bluegrass Festivals and earned one of the most dedicated followings of their generation before breaking up in 1976 – without ever recording an album. 

More than forty years after becoming a groundbreaking jam band on Colorado’s festival circuit, Magic Music has released its first-ever studio album.
