Even from their 2012 beginnings on St. Edward’s campus, it was obvious that MC Megz Kelli and producer Dougie Do shared a unified vision. Their group, Magna Carda, brews a jazzy, retro, soul-steeped stew, (think Erykah Badu, Digable Planets, Robert Glasper) that has only improved with time, bringing them both fans and critical acclaim. The creative musicians that round out Magna Carda’s lineup push their sound in new directions, making this band much more than just a producer’s studio project. They’ve just released their latest set of songs, Somewhere Between, and they’re off to NYC later this month to show them off.
