      I discovered Leon Russell seriously about 6 months ago and fell in love. I had heard Tightrope and Song For You growing up but I had no idea what I was going to discover going down the rabbit hole. This man wrote and played the songs that have been on repeat on my headphones ever since. So I wrote a song inspired by him. It’s a day in my life in NYC rolling on the uptown 6 listening to Shootout On The Plantation. I hope you guys dig it. New LP drops in 2016.

        Here’s my latest recording and a glimpse into the new sound of Strange Majik coming in 2016! I’ve gone back to the blues and revisited this tune from the Dead Exs catalog. It’s always been a favorite at live shows this last year and I wanted to take a minute to share it with ya. Hope you dig it! I got the help of some really great musicians on this one. Here’s the credits.

          Tuesday nights at the Tribeca hot spot Belle Reve are becoming a Manhattan mainstay. Some people say its a refreshing throwback to old New York, some say its got a New Orleans feel and some say it’s like quaint Paris brasserie….one thing is for sure it’s got a great laid back vibe and of course great music. Tuesdays began with Strange Majik performing solo with a gogo dancer and have evolved to a full band featuring an upright bass and piano added to the mix. It has grown into a great musical evening of jams and suprises with special guests. Even Kanye West and Kim Kardashian showed up! Live and unleashed every Tuesday from 10pm -1. Belle Reve 305 Church St. New York City.

                Watching David Pattillo (who goes by the moniker “Strange Majik”) perform makes you want to fist bump to the tune of rebellion and replace your bedroom door with beaded curtains. Exuding bona fide rock n’roll from his music to his attitude to his shoes, my good friend continues to add to his arsenal of skills by releasing a record called Lights On featuring a coterie of talented singers and rappers that begun to fester after a walk home from his Nolita studio. Ever since I met him at a Rolling Stones tribute show in Bowery a few years ago, I’ve been captivated by his energy and crippled by jealousy of his long, luscious locks. WHAT IS YOUR SECRET, DAVID? What otherworldly oil do you use to make your hair shine like a brand new solar panel?! But I digress! In addition to fronting rock n’roll group The Dead Exs, the Emmy-nominated producer and musician has teamed up with a slew of fresh New York City talent to produce a 10-track record that transcends genre from an array of decades. I sat down to have a conversation with my buddy and it went a little something like this:

                  “For me vinyl has always brought controversy, rebellion, love, hope, philosophy, sex, truth, irony, and mind expansion. From making up dances to Beatles tunes on my sister’s close n’ play as a toddler, to dropping my new 180g Lights On white vinyl on my vintage Dual turntable, it never ceases to amaze. My dream as a young musician would not be realized till I saw the needle meet the spinning platter and play my song… and now that day is here… a long time coming.” Continues here

                    Screen Shot 2015-04-24 at 12.26.17 PM A random night of music goes from zero to 60 in a matter of seconds…..this is what NYC is all about. Gotta love the Belle Reve beautiful dream. Strange Majik was performing his solo blues with Velvetiina Taylor groovin her gogo moves and look who showed up….it even broke the Strange Majik personal Facebook forcing him to become a business page.
