John Jacob Magistery
With "psychedelic jams, bouncy pop, (and) quiet folk - John Jacob Magistery beams with mature precision" (OEB SXSW 2018). Hailing from Montreal, the post-indie rock ensemble blends powerful lyrics with influences of folk and soul. The music finds roots in the raw and sometimes violent undercurrents of life in the Americas, zeroing-in on the struggle and banality in today's age of collective sensory experience. Their live performance showcases their charged emotional energy, with vocals that drive an intent well-crafted sound.
