New music outlet Kick Kick Snare originally premiered the track commenting that, “Blending gritty vintage vibrations, dusty hip hop drums, and elements of reggaeton, Amy pulls us into a world that consists of buzzing basslines and grooving backbeats for days.”
To create “Magic,” Stroup enlisted the help of Taylor Dexter and Wesley Singerman, two LA-based producers who are a part of the SuperCookie production team. Most recently Wesley has worked with Kendrick Lamar, and Taylor with Ty Dolla Sign. “We met up at 10pm in Sherman Oaks at a studio with an outdoor basketball court and immediately hit it off with Wesley and Taylor. We had a song written and scratch track in about 3 hours and ‘Magic’ was born,” recounts Stroup.
Not only has Amy Stroup seen considerable success as a solo artist, but also as a member of the popular indie/alternative group, Sugar & The Hi-Lows. Last year, Amy and fellow bandmate Trent Dabbs toured the US and internationally including a sold out Royal Albert hall show in London with Kacey Musgraves in support of the duo’s sophomore LP, High Roller. As Sugar & The Hi-Lows, the pair has also shared the stage with Chris Stapleton, Kings of Leon, and Ingrid Michelson. As a solo artist, Amy is a member of Ten Out of Tenn, a collective of ten artists from Tennessee that formed to tour the country and give voice to the emerging indie pop Nashville sound. This group’s members have included Andrew Belle, Joy Williams, Mikky Ekko, Katie Herzig, and Trent Dabbs among others.
