Ladies and gentlemen!

We hereby introduce a stunning, spectacular new artist onto your radar: her name is Minna Choi and she plays/composes/conducts music under the name Magik*Magik.  

After 8 years of leading her very own orchestra (how many people do you know that have started their own orchestras?), she has finally written and recorded her own songs, the first of which is a slow-burning ballad called "Laugh a Lot" which features a duet with How To Dress Well's Tom Krell, with whom Magik*Magik have collaborated on and off since 2012.

Minna Choi, one of the Bay Area's most prolific musicians, began the Magik*Magik Orchestra in 2008, for whom she still writes, arranges and conducts.  With early praise for Choi's work from the likes of Wired, NPR Music, and 7x7 (who called Choi one of their 40 Under 40), her orchestra has toured North America with Death Cab For Cutie, recorded the score to the films Looper andthe Oscar-nominated short The Dam Keeper, released an album with acclaimed artist John Vanderslice, and much much more.

"Laugh a Lot" is Magik*Magik's first release as a solo artist, and is highly anticipated amongst people in the know. Don't miss this one, and stay tuned for more......
