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.
Thank you for visiting the official website for Magic Birds, a Chattanooga, TN-based band made up of Scott Bruce and Ben Ezell. Delivering their own brand of Americana music, the duo blends together elements of classic country, bluegrass and folk, producing a style of music that exemplifies the sound that has helped shape their lives. Check out the site, see where the next performance will be and take a listen to a few tunes. Hope you like what you hear!
We are headed back to Dalton in late March and this time we will return to DBC, right in downtown Dalton. We always have great time here, so make plans to join us again. They will take care of serving you the delicious and unique brews and we will be serving up the live Americana!
Magic Birds is happy to announce that we will be a part of the Spring Festival at Ivy Academy, and we will perform at 11am, directly following the annual Running with Sasquatch 5K Trail Run. All of these activities--the trail run and the festival following--all help to benefit Ivy Academy, a Hamilton Co charter school that holds a special place for the Magic Birds team! The festival is free and there will be food, cotton candy and other treats, including some tunes from Magic Birds, so come hang out with us!!

We are excited to travel up the road from Chattanooga to Dunlap for our first performance at The Dunlap Yard. We have heard nothing but great things about this venue, and we know they have hosted a ton of great music over the past few years, and we feel lucky to add Magic Birds to this list! Also, our buddy Tanner Hillis will get the show started with his own set. So, take the short drive up the road with us and spend your Friday night in downtown Dunlap!! Doors at 6pm Central, show at 7pm Central.

The Birds travel to Alabama, part 2! Back in October, we made our Alabama debut at Yellowhammer Brewing in Huntsville and we are so happy to announce that we are headed back!! They have plethora of tasty brews, 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 again. The last time was a lot of fun, so do not miss out this time!
We are headed back to our favorite 'Five Star Dive Bar' for our next local Chattanooga show. We will have more details coming for this one, but go ahead and mark your calendar because it's always a big party when the Birds flock to Doc's!!
