Piano Magic

Profile:
Piano Magic was a loose collective of sorts, with an ever-changing lineup originally inspired by bands like This Mortal Coil. Core member Glen Johnson formed the band in 1996 with Dick Rance and Dominic Chennel completing the initial trio. Over the years the quiet bedroom project expanded and changed as Johnson enlisted the help of friends, acquaintances, and moonlighters from other bands. It was oddly appropriate that Piano Magic had a revolving membership, because its music had a graceful fluidity and malleability that defied rigid structure. Over the course of numerous albums and singles, Piano Magic's music evolved from lo-fi instrumental noodling to pop-electronica trickery, and then again into a lush vocal and orchestral pastiche. Prior to its January 2017 release, Piano Magic announced that 'Closure' would be their final album. They played their last ever UK concert on Saturday 3rd December 2016 at The Lexington, Angel, London. The show commemorated their first ever concert, exactly to the day, 20 years prior.
