Imagine if a soundtrack came before the film. If the music was already there, and the pictures were woven between the notes. This is Magnolia. Spontaneously formed in 2009 by long time friends, an afternoon of Lanois-inspired playing turned into the making of a record. Collectively their resume includes The Bamboos, The Cat Empire, Paul Grabowsky, Missy Higgins, the Melbourne Symphony, The Raah Project, Washington, and many more.
Magnolia will return to Melbourne later in 2011.
