Magic City Hippies

We can all take solace in the simple pleasures awarded us through our senses. Imagine, the memorable
clink of ice hitting a rocks glass, the scent of muddled limes and mint, the faint crackle as the tipple is
poured, the effervescent fizz of soda about to broach the rim, the straw insertion and swirl, the first sip of
vacation...

Life would be miserable without these gifts, and life would most certainly suck without the perfect
soundtrack to the first cocktail of some much needed time off. Pop the cork on some Magic City Hippies.
MCH initially floated onto the scene as Robby Hunter Band, yet once their album titled Magic City Hippies
dropped, it became clear they had accidentally found their identity through an album title. Renamed in
2015 as Magic City Hippies, the Miami boys tasked themselves with marrying the funk sweat of a mid-
afternoon sail with the syncopated shoulder shimmy of a late night out. They quickly gathered steam and
took to gracing stages across the planet, from packed night clubs, to sold out concert halls, to earning
performances at Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits, and Lollapalooza, Magic City Hippies cater to those simply
looking to escape with a welcoming, never-haughty, yet delightfully naughty, thwap.

Their Hippie Castle EP (2015) was just the tip of the proverbial ice cube in a cocktail glass of hippie sass.
It mixed pool-side melodies and three day weekend grooves with a soulful, upbeat, vacation-heavy
inflection of what can only be described as their own brand of musically casual psych-pop. Modern Animal
(2019) brought MCH beachside, adding even more sultry swank to an already damp pair of chinos. A few
years later, Water Your Garden (2022) brought the world out of a socially isolated pandemic, with a
brilliantly shimmering and joyous celebration of dancing on our own, yet now together.

While the studio albums have each received both fan and critical acclaim, their engaging and
unapologetically energetic live show takes even the most dance-stubborn attendee and persuades a sort
of hypnotically voluntary participation. Seeing first timers become lifelong fans is a galdarn tradition when
it comes to a live Magic City Hippies experience.

Whether this sunshine funk is all up inside your alley, or even if pink neon signs flashing the words
SENSUAL AUDIBLE MASSAGE just have you curious, Magic City Hippies deliver a rare blend of musical
talent and touring tenacity, with an uniquely cool and pastel fashion sense offering up funky sweaty smiles
aplenty.

Josh Fudge

Josh Fudge fashions a kaleidoscopic take on pop by conjuring modern vibrancy through analog proficiency. The 19-year-old Oklahoma City-born singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer paints from a broad palette of alternative, indie, and pop, envisioning a world of his own in the process. He took to the piano at the age of four, spending hours on the instrument daily. At nine-years-old, he noticed a flier in a local arts district. The words, "Street Performers Welcome," beckoned him. Much to his mother's chagrin, her middle schooler set up shop with a tiny keyboard and amp and busked, taking home $200 in cash. Drawing inspiration from everyone from Billy Joel to Mac DeMarco, he bought a guitar, a bass, a drum set, and amassed an arsenal of analog synths. Sharpening his songwriting, he locked into an "aggressive release strategy" throughout 2020. His single "7 in the Morning" landed a placement on Spotify's Fresh Finds. Coverage followed from Indie Shuffle as the track shot to #1 on Hype Machine. He maintained this momentum with the independent project, Fun Times. Among many highlights, "When She's Gone" cracked 1 million cumulative streams. However, he reached another level yet again with 2021's "FEEL LIKE." It debuted on Spotify's coveted New Music Friday playlist and generated 2.8 million Spotify streams. After amassing 10 million-plus streams independently and receiving support from Spotify's New Music Friday, Glide Magazine, and more, he invites everyone into this space on a series of singles and more music to come.
