The Magic E's
Rock 'n' Roll; a simple slogan but one that perfectly describes The Magic Es sound. The band, formed in 2014, consists of Pete Thompson (vocals/guitars), Jasper Stainthorpe (bass), Stuart Catchpole (drums/bvox) and Phil Woods (guitar). All have impressive music CVs which include running record labels, world tours, and top 40 singles and albums. ìWeíve all been playing music for yearsî says Pete. ìStuart, Phil and I were playing at a friendís wedding. The gig was in a marquee, which happened to be in Jasperís garden. It turned out that Jasper not only had a garden fitting for a rock ëní roll wedding; he was also a bass player of some pedigree. We spent some time sharing stories about our various music adventures, influences and aspirationsî. Time passed, more musical adventures were had and then, in early 2014, they came together to form The Magic Es. Now, with a set of original tracks that range from anthemic rabble-rousers to acoustic foot-tappers, theyíre unleashing their sound on the public. If you like blistering, melodic rock that lodges itself deep in your brain to the point where youíll be humming their infectious tunes for weeks then you've just found your new favourite band.
