Magic Man are a five-piece band from Boston who make melodic, dance-influenced indie rock. Formed in 2010, Magic Man began as a laptop-based duo showcasing Alex on vocals and Sam Vanderhoop Lee on guitars and keyboard. This early version of the band released one album, 2010’s Real Life Color. Eventually, the group grew into a full-fledged rock band with the addition of Justine on keyboards, Daniel on bass, and Joey on drums. The band has been featured in Rolling Stone, Glamour, the Boston Globe, and GQ, whose review described ‘Before the Waves’ as “12 tracks of alt joy.”
