“Spirits high, keep our dreams alive.” A triumphant, conclusive statement ties together the chorus from MULTIMAGIC’s recent single, “Dreams,” which will see a release in physical form via Soul Step Records this summer. The 7-inch vinyl, featuring “Dreams” and a yet to be released track titled “Sunshine” will arrive Friday, June 21st, alongside a release show at the historic Woodward Theater.
MULTIMAGIC is an indie dream-pop band fronted by singer-songwriter and producer Coran Stetter based in Cincinnati, Ohio. This performance marks a return to the Cincinnati stage after a two-year hiatus, centered around personal trauma that led to a significant lineup change. After spending most of 2018 writing and recording with Eric Tuffendsam of Moonlight Studios, the new band (which features Evan Brown on drums, keyboardist and singer Meg Kecskes, guitarist James Ruehlman, and bassistAnthony Maley) are ready to throw down live in their hometown. Dubbing the event “SUNSHINE / DREAMS 7’ Vinyl Release,” the two songs will be prominently featured in the headlining set, following a solid 3-act supporting lineup.
Joining MULTIMAGIC for the evening will be fellow Cincinnati indie dreamers Sungaze, Nashville’s quaint-pop band The Pressure Kids, and finally Ronin Halloway, a Cincinnati Hip-Hop artist who will also be releasing his debut album Pressure on June 21st(Evan Brown, MULTIMAGIC’s drum expert, doubles as producer and DJ for Halloway).
In keeping with the themes of rebirth and the pursuit of dreams, the acts follow a loose narrative which will culminate in MULTIMAGIC’s headlining set.
“There’s going to be a real ebb and flow to this event. We wanted to go above and beyond and create an adventure for everyone who comes out.” Stetter adds, “It’s definitely going to be a unique experience.”
