Event Details

For most, a pandemic might not be the ideal time for any kind of work, let alone planning a debut album. But for the bicoastal six-piece Mama Magnolia—vocalist Megan Letts, saxophonist Alex Cazet, guitarist Thomas Jennings, drummer Jackson Hillmer, trumpeter Carrie McCune, and bassist Zach Jackson—the process of making their first full-length Dear Irvington was an essential remedy amidst distress. After managing to stay together for five years, despite inter-band-relationship-breakups and cross country moves, the shapeshifting indie-soul group was primed to create in a turbulent time. “This band was the thread of consistency and familiarity that was keeping my sanity,” Cazet says about creating during the throws of the pandemic. “We gave ourselves a goal,” Letts adds about the project. “And there’s something to be said about art that comes out of desperation. We were desperately trying to connect, and feel purpose as artists, as we all felt that feeling of aloneness. And I feel that in this record.”
