Philadelphia-based trio SPAGA of Aron Magner on piano, Jason Fraticelli on bass, and Matt Scarano on drums are gearing up to release their debut album this summer on Magner’s AM Records. To kick things off, the group (aptly named after Magner’s own composition for his jam band Disco Biscuits) have released their first single, “Creed”, a song with a smooth sensibility to it with a subtle sort of epicness to it that’s definitely worth looking into further. Get your appetite whet below and be on the lookout for SPAGA’s debut July 12th.
