About Magus & The Movers
"WITH A VOICE LIKE AGED HONEY, Magus Vaughn has come into his own as a frontman and songwriter to be reckoned with. Just a few years after disbanding his group, now-local-legends The Comet Conductors, he decided to return to the stage and to the studio with a fresh outlook on life, and songs to bear it. Backed by a crack team of musicians lovingly called “The Movers”, Vaughn started putting in the work and pushing past the fear of the unknown to craft a unique sounds all his own." — MADSCIENCE

About Kirk Fleta
"Fleta's Spanish roots combine with Delta blues, driving percussive at times and gently melodic at others he intertwines the rich tone of his voice with his unique finger style guitar playing to lay down his insightful lyrics with soul." — Metropulse
