about

American Magic Tricks is the culminating effort of Forlorn Strangers’ artistic endeavors of 2014. The EP reflects the varied influences permeating the young band’s recent development from its roots in the Appalachian Bluegrass tradition to its pursuit of broadening lyrical & musical expression. American Magic Tricks unabashedly delves into the sounds of the backbone of the nation: the Mississippi River. Drawing on their own experiences on American rivers, Forlorn Strangers found jazz seeping into this record. Throughout the EP, the listener is taken on a journey of American culture accessible both by river & music.
