Our newest single Caroline's Calling is now available to download or stream just about anywhere you normally get your music. Head over to our videos page to check it out. We are really proud of this one. It's the 4th single we have released from our upcoming sophomore album, which we hope to finish and release at some point in 2020. Once again, this song was produced by Nick Lutsko and features backing vocals from Amber Fults and lead guitar from Matt Shigekawa (from Ashley and the X's). We hope you like it!

Cumberland Trail Spring Festival
After Ivy Academy's annual early morning Running with Sasquatch 5k comes to an end, the Cumberland Trail Spring Festival will kick off on Ivy's campus at 10am. Magic Birds will entertain with live music around 11am. We are excited about this opportunity as we owe a lot to Ivy Academy. That is where it all started for Magic Birds in 2012 when Ben and Scott's wife Mary were both teachers there. We look forward to hanging out with old friends and making some new ones!
Trident Transport 3rd Annual Cornhole Tournament
Trident Transport is holding their 3rd Annual Cornhole Tournament to benefit the Children's Hospital at Erlanger. This event continues to grow each year, and this year, they have made the move to a bigger venue, the historic gardens behind the Chattanooga Choo Choo. A bigger venue calls for a bigger event, so this year participants and their supporters will be in for a treat with more children's activities, more food and drinks and....a full schedule of live music! Magic Birds will share the stage with Ashley and the X's, The Afternooners and Call Me Spinster.
Magic Birds at Slick's
We're excited to be returning to Slick's for another performance. Hopefully, the weather will cooperate and we can once again play on the outdoor stage and take advantage of their awesome patio experience. Great burgers and great drinks....come make a night of it with us!
Soggy Daisies & Magic Birds at Wanderlinger
We are excited to be making our debut performance at Wanderliner, and what better way to do that but with our buddy TJ Greever and his newest project Soggy Daisies! You may know TJ as the frontman from other popular Chattanooga bands like Up With the Joneses, Glowing Bordis, The Communicators, TJG & The 423s, among a few others we are probably forgetting. TJ is a main fixture in the local Chattanooga music scene and the guys from Magic Birds have been friends with him for a while. However, we have never shared the stage with him...until now. Soggy Daisies is his latest venture and brings more of an Americana approach than most of his past rock-n-roll outfits. Also, did we mention Wanderlinger mkaes great beer and is doing a fantastic job of giving bands another great place to play in our city. Magic Birds will get the night started at 9am, so come have some fun with us!
