Magnolia Bayou was born on the bayous of South Mississippi.

Initially formed as a garage band between friends, they got their start on the local bar circuit after they auditioned for a gig at an open jam at Murky Waters Blues Club in Downtown Ocean Springs, MS. After playing three explosive songs back to back, they were immediately booked for a gig of their own at the Murky Waters in Gulfport, MS where they played to a packed house. Since then, they’ve spent the last three years paying their dues up and down the Mississippi Blues Trail and surrounding states.

In three shorts years, Magnolia Bayou has been nominated in five separate categories for the MS Music Awards, including a write up in Hattiesburg, MS-based DIME magazine, given radio play in the Netherlands and was interviewed by Ireland Based Bourbon FM for a documentary about Music in the Southeastern US. Since April of 2017, they’ve been hard at work professionally recording their debut album, which is set to be released in May of 2018.

They’ve already released two singles, which can be found anywhere you can stream music online. The album includes nuances of southern, psychedelic, funk and blues-based Rock n Roll. Listeners describe their look and sound as a throwback to the late 60’s and early 70’s when Rock N Roll was “epic”.
