The band has been thrilling growing crowds at every stop along its 70-city North American and European tour, celebrating the release of its debut album In The Wind. Magic Giant’s style has been described by NPR as "upbeat, passionate indie-folk" and by Billboard as inspiring "mass dance-alongs." The band’s current single "Window" leaped into the Top 40 on Billboard's Hot Adult Contemporary and Adult Pop charts; and the new acoustic album debuted in the iTunes Alternative top 25.
