About No Magic

An evening session with Ben Ward playing eclectic blends of pop, rock, electronic, dance and whatever else seems tangentially appropriate. A featured guest brings along their musical inspirations and stories, and we'll pour over the record of the week. “This isn't about looking good. This isn't about making people like you. No magic, just music.”
