Biography

There are three artists with this name.

1. Magpie is the personal project of italian musician Daniele Carretti, who plays guitar in the postpunk/electronic/spokenword italian band Offlaga Disco Pax.
Magpie music is more quiet and shoegaze/postrock-oriented. The band has been irregularly active live since 1998 with various lineup changes, finally stabilizing as a duo with Daniele and bassist Valentina.

Magpie released debut album Noir or Several Murders in Sleepless Nights in late 2009. Valentina then quit the band and Carretti is currently touring with another bass player.

2. Magpie is the folk duo of Terry Leonino and Greg Artzner, based in the Hudson Valley of New York State, who began to play music together in Kent, Ohio in September of 1973. They chose the name Magpie for their band, a name which grew in personal significance for them as years went by. Terry was a student in her senior year at Kent State University in the fall of ‘73, and when she graduated the following spring, she and Greg packed Greg’s VW bus and moved to the Washington, DC area. In the years since then, they have traveled and toured extensively, performed in concerts, at folk clubs and festivals around the world, and recorded many times.

    quando ho letto Magpie credevo si trattasse del progetto musicale di Margaret Killjoy, l'autrice (?) della guida Steampunk all'Apocalisse....l'avete per caso conosciuto o non c'entra proprio nulla?
