Biography

We are Magma and we were born to make music. We are, right now, all 13 years old and we love and play Classic Rock from the 70's & 80's. We originally started in Boardman and still play a lot in that area. Basically, how everything started was that Elliott ( guitar, vox ) met up with Mike ( drums, percussion ) in band class one day and started up a conversation about Van Halen. Finally, they jamed together one day and tryed to write a song and it was not good and the idea just kinda went away. About 2 months later they tryed it again. It went better but was still not even close to something that people would take seriously. They got down some cover tunes but needed a bass player and there was noone they knew that would work. Another month went by and still no farther ahead then they were. One day in art class Elliott met Jordan ( bass, vox ). They talked about music and recording tracks and it turned about they both lived on the same street as eachother. Jordan came over to Elliott's house one day and started playing some cover stuff but it needed a lot of work. Two weeks passed and the three joined. The first song they every played together was " Sweet Child O' Mine" by GNR. It was not good but it got better. They worked on different songs and tryed getting a good amount together. Finally, they put together a 15 minute set and went and performed at Jumpin Jacks just a couple weeks before it closed. That was the first show... "Now we have writen 7 songs and are working on more. Also, have a CD of the very first songs we ever wrote."
