Hailing from the Sunshine Coast, Hobo Magic sling out a unique brand of old-school inspired psychedelic Rock'n'Roll madness, with love of all things groovy and heavy. The talented trio kick out fresh sounding jams, spawned from the embers of the kings that riffed before them and strive to take the listener on a journey through uncharted places of the mind.
After their debut self-titled EP release and subsequent Australian tour in 2015, Hobo Magic have riffed and tripped around many of Australia’s clubs, pubs, bedrooms, skate parks and warehouses, ripping out their style of heavy grooving mayhem. The acclaimed act has supported such International heavyweight bands such as Earthless, Elder, Lecherous Gaze, Red Fang, Kadavar, Radio Moscow, Green Leaf and The Sword, leaving ringing ears and smiling faces in their wake.
Teaming up with Beats Cartel in 2017, Hobo Magic recorded and released their eagerly anticipated second EP 'The World Today' to rave reviews, touring the East Coast of Australia and New Zealand in support for the most part of the year. The album cycle continues through early 2018 with a Japan tour along with a host of confirmed national festival slots and a Greenleaf (SWE) national support.
This is a band with the world at their feet.
Hobo Magic over the past few years have been building up their road and air miles, smashing out single release tours and travelling all through the states of Australia bringing good time grooves to bars, pubs, venues and anywhere with a power outlet. Touring for debut album 'The World Today' late 2017 saw the boys play some of the country's best live music venues with some of the most diverse and exciting national and international touring acts, including fest slots at Jungle Love and Cherry Fest in Melbourne. The band then slotted 2 international tours with visits to New Zealand and Japan to make new fans.

wild and wonderful” Stoner Hive
This band could make the average 4-string and 6-string player want to give up the ghost. For precise, hard edged rock n roll built with the power of 3, this band drop the sledgehammer forcing the room up to 11” Frankensounds
Hobo Magic, under the steam of their debut album, will venture out into the World through 2018 with confirmed trips to New Zealand and Japan along with planned action in the US and Europe. A follow up concept album is already in the works, set for a late 2018 release.
