Magic In the Other



“A trio actively seeking enlightenment and passion for whatever life throws at us. Bold stuff but the band intertwines with such obvious delight and get across their unique thing with such abundant charm and off-handed skill that the gathering dancers only realize they’ve been simmering in a philosophical hot tub after they’re toasty & copacetic.” - Jam Base

“An intelligent music listener’s dream. The music is danceable but also worthy of focus to see their communication in real time. It is something special to bear witness to the birth of a band that could potentially take a scene by storm, you feel like you’re in on something, witness to something great.” - Glide Magazine

Magic In The Other was born out of the idea that it is in the unknown where the most potent ground lays for magic and discovery.

Assembled in early 2017 consisting of in-demand Bay Area musicians - drummer, lead vocalist and bandleader Ezra

Lipp (Phil Lesh & Friends, Sean Hayes), bassist Steve

Adams (ALO, Nicki Bluhm & The Gramblers) and guitar wizard

Roger Riedlbauer (Jolie Holland), this innovative trio from Oakland, CA sets out to connect with their listeners, creating a mentally-stimulating, emotionally-resonate, highly-danceable, and distinctly-transformative experience where everyone feels just a little more magical. A rock trio at its core, MITO combines a slew of diverse influences to create an original sound of intelligent songwriting and heart-felt, improvisational fearlessness.

In their first year while building a buzz in the bay area MITO was able to crowdfund 20K to go towards the productions and recording of their debut record, What We Know Is Possible released (September 2018) which was met with enthusiastic reception from fans and critics alike. WWKIP delivers half energetic and intriguing instrumentals as well as half uplifting lyrical songs with a socio-political focus.

“What We Know Is Possible is perhaps the first record to arrive in the midst of our current world struggles that truly tries to make sense of these times in which we live. It could have gone dark, but dark is not where MITO goes. There is a strong message of hope here that lifts the listener up. Collectively, the songs become an anthem of empathy amidst a daily grind of negativity. Songs that take hurtful topics like natural disasters, as well as an apocalyptic political landscape and turn all that hurt and confusion on its head by examining these negatives through a quest for personal positivity. They seek the answer to the question of how to still boundlessly love one’s fellow man and embrace one’s personal blessings amidst a world, quite literally, on fire...But do not couch these words as a suggestion that this album has a political agenda, no way, it’s just an invitation to come to the table.” - Glide Magazine

MITO has been back in the studio cooking up something brand new and their sophomore release will be out in Dec 2019.
