Who is Magic Birds?

Magic Birds is 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 stripped down style of music that exemplifies the sound that has helped shape their lives. Telling stories that they have heard over time, stories they have lived through and stories they have simply imagined, Magic Birds continues to put their heart and soul into the music they create. 

Since releasing their debut album, The Music of Benjamin Bruce, in 2015, they have shared the stage with major artists such as Elephant Revival, Milk Carton Kids, Penny & Sparrow, Rhett Miller, Unknown Hinson, Adam Faucett, Aaron Lee Tasjan, Josh Roberts & The Hinges, 49 Winchester, Nathan Bell and Chattanooga legend, Roger Alan Wade. However, their passion for the blossoming Chattanooga music scene has led them to build great relationships with artists of all genres in the Scenic City, and they have had the pleasure of performing alongside their friends on many occasions. 

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 was finally presented to the world in August of 2023. 

They continue to perform live around the region, growing their fanbase and molding the story of Magic Birds. Their music can be found online just about anywhere you can find music. So if you can't catch them live, find their music, turn it on, turn it up and take a musical journey with Magic Birds!
