The time has FINALLY come. We have finished our new album and it will be released on Friday 8.11.23. It will be available to download and stream on all online platforms, we will have it here on our site for ordering, and we will have a handful of live shows to celebrate the release.
Here's more about the album:
On their sophomore album, Twenty-Three, Magic Birds tapped into the musical genius of Chattanooga, TN's own Nick Lutsko for the production. Keeping true to their Americana style of storytelling and mix of classic country, bluegrass, folk and soul, the direction of this album was to present their newest batch of songs with a full-band sound. With Lutsko at the helm, the band sought out many of their musician friends around Chattanooga to help them accomplish what they were searching for. The album features appearances by Amber Fults, Matt Shigekawa, Dan Pinson, Randy Steele, Deron Stevens, John Boulware, Drew Streip, and of course, Nick Lutsko--and not to mention mastering by Charles Allison and artwork by Steven Ratajczyk. And after many years of tweaking, perfecting and swimming through life's challenges, Twenty-Three is finally ready to present to the world and Scott Bruce and Ben Ezell of Magic Birds could not be happier! So turn it on, turn it up and take a musical journey with Magic Birds through the songs of Twenty-Three.

We are dipping our toes into Alabama and what better place to start than Yellowhammer Brewing in Huntsville, AL! They have plethora of tasty brews, a wonderful facility, delicious food coming from their conjoined partner, Earth & Stone Pizza, and an amazing outdoor area with a stage that we cannot wait to perform on. If you have friends in the Huntsville area, please tell them to come hang out with us. And if you are in for a road trip, Huntsville is not too far away! This one should be a lot of fun....
We ventured down to Dalton a few months ago, and we all had so much fun, that we are headed back to DBC on December 1st! If you missed us last time, go ahead and mark your calendar now. If you came out to see us last time, let's do it again! They have the tasty beverages, and we will bring the tasty tunes!
We had such a great time in Anderson for our album release party back in August that we already have a return date on the calendar at McGee's Irish Pub! You have plenty of time to secure your table reservations and make plans to join Magic Birds back in Scott's old stomping grounds, for what is sure to be another fun night!!
