Magic In The Other
Magic In The Other
Magic In The Other is a fast-rising indie-rock trio that combines diverse influences to create an original sound marked by intelligent songwriting and heart-felt, improvisational fearlessness. Composed of in-demand Bay Area musicians- drummer and bandleader Ezra Lipp (Phil Lesh & Friends, Tea Leaf Green, Sean Hayes), bassist Steve Adams (ALO, Nicki Bluhm & The Gramblers, Big Light) and guitar tone-master Roger Reidlbauer (Jolie Holland), this innovative trio from Oakland, CA creates an emotionally resonant, highly danceable, and soul-transforming experience that leaves listeners feeling a little more magical.

Kelly McFarling
KELLY MCFARLING is an Atlanta, GA born, Bay Area based songwriter. Her work is reflective of transitions, the wilderness, and its navigation.

During her ten plus years in the Bay Area, McFarling has released six independent recordings: studio albums, Distractible Child (2010) and Ridgeline (2013), an EP of cover songs, Others (2013), Water Dog (2017) and two live albums, Live at Pirate Ship Laguna (2009) and Live at Eddie’s Attic (2011). She has toured behind her own projects as well as performing with bands like Y La Bamba and Goodnight Texas, and is one-third of the all-female folk trio Glittersnatch with Megan Keely and Wolf Larsen. Over the years, McFarling has shared the stage with artists such as Shovels and Rope, Sean Hayes, Chris Pureka, Jolie Holland, and has made a home for herself in the San Francisco music community

Water Dog, McFarling’s latest release, is her most intimate and folk-leaning record to date. She recorded the album in seasonal segments of 2016. The album is a reflection on inward motion; on the way that water and its movement dominates our lives and bodies. It’s about love, trust, and how we come to know the things we know. Above all, it’s about the cycles of nature that have the power to be both grounding and destructive. “While I was writing these songs, I was thinking a lot about family, stability, and love; and I was simultaneously starting to spend more time in and around the ocean. I was getting in the water a lot, and it opened a conversation about the nature of flow; learning to move with changes, instead of against them."
