Listening to Mages is the adventurer's equivalent of floating in an all-encompassing life-orb that soars through the waxing expanse of the universe. There's a sense of unity, weightlessness, and mind-bending nirvana. No past, no future. There is only Mages.

Biography

In the spirit of its namesake, Mages' music moves. The songs evoke an aura, an ethereal presence rather than a short-lived hook. With songwriting that reflects collaboration, Mages offer an expansive and unique repertoire in both live shows and recorded tracks.

Sometimes folk, other times the melodic riffs of bluegrass, pop and rock. Mages transcend the rigid definitions of any particular genre. They are elusive yet organic, grounded yet experimental. This music is not only concerned with the world, but with what is beyond here, the infinite.

The group has two collections of recordings, their self-titled debut in October, 2009 and the new EP, Magestic.

Mages are currently getting "Magestic" spun on hundreds of college and non-commercial radio stations across the United States and Canada. The band is happy to report that they have been charting Top 30 on several stations, from California to Colorado, Iowa to Pennsylvania, Louisiana to Newfoundland Island.
Furthermore, the band recently shot for Minnesota Original, tpt's most successful television show to date. It is scheduled to air on Twin Cities (Minneapolis/St. Paul) Public Television this season.

Lyrics

All Amounts

Written By: Mages

We could meet up after sunset,
kick around town for awhile

Got to be merciful baby
Got to be merciful now
Got to be merciful baby, somehow

What will it take? Until all amounts get to you?
What will it take? Until all amounts get to you?
What will it take? What will it take?

We could meet up after sunset,
kick around town for awhile

Got to be merciful baby
Got to be merciful now
Got to be merciful baby, somehow

What will it take? Until all amounts get to you?
What will it take? Until all amounts get to you?
What will it take? What will it take?
