Stay Magical

Fort Vine

Too Many Records presents... Fort Vine - Stay Magical!

"Stay Magical" was recorded in the Catskill Mountains of Upstate New York surrounded by nature and all things fun. The endless inspiration found in this environment can be heard in every aspect of this album, from the peaceful sounds of nature between the tracks, to the lyrical content, and instrumental composition. All four seasons are captured and showcased throughout "Stay Magical"; the birds singing at dawn in the spring, crickets chirping on hot summer nights, wind chimes sparkling in the fall, and the crackling comfort of the fireplace in winter. The writing and recording process spanned the time of three years, as Fort Vine carefully crafted and nurtured this project, discovering the depth of meaning in each song; a common theme and metaphor woven through the entire listening experience.

Ranking #7 on Matt from Too Many Records' Top Albums of 2018, he felt it was criminal that this masterpiece didn't have the wax treatment. So... he set out to change that. As the first release (TMR-1) of the new Too Many Records record label, he is proud to present Stay Magical in gloriously splattered double LP, gatefold fashion. A release to be cherished, a collectible to be proud to own, and an album that is wonderful from the first note to the last.

Imagine Fleetwood Mac, Fleet Foxes, and The Beach Boys sitting around a campfire, having a deep conversation about life. Set that to music, and you’ve got Fort Vine. Their music is something everyone can connect to; whether it be their sweeping melodies, rich harmonies, catchy rhythms, or poetic lyrics- there’s a lot to love about Fort Vine. They weave several genres of music together, from Indie-Rock to Folk-Pop, best described as Alternative Art-Rock.

More than just music, Fort Vine is also a place- a tree fort nestled in a secret corner of abandoned overgrowth on the crowded island of Manhattan. Frontcouple, Trevor Tunison and Nyna Nelson, built it together when they first met. It’s their favorite hang-out spot. It takes a keen eye to find it, but it’s there, hidden among the trees.

Front man, Trevor Tunison, from the Catskill Mountains in upstate NY, grew up building forts in his back forest, sculpting clay figures, and singing with the trees- a magical childhood by anyone’s standards.

Fate can only explain how he met his front woman, Nyna Nelson, from central Washington State. She moved to New York with a suitcase and a dream, which spiraled into something completely different once she stumbled into Tunison on their building’s front stoop. Who knew she needed to move to New York to relive her favorite childhood pastime of building tree forts and writing songs?

When Luke Markham, Fort Vine’s drummer, found his way to NYC from Buffalo, it was only natural he should join the band after he and Tunison had collaborated in college a few years prior. Markham makes Fort Vine move like no one else can, especially in the presence of Kenny Johnson, their bass guitarist and third-part-harmony face-melter. Hailing from Colorado, Johnson moved all across the US playing music before landing in the big city, and joining the band.

Ancient legend has it, if you put your ear up to any living tree, you can hear Fort Vine’s music playing...
