Short Bio

Sparky's Magic Piano are a 5 piece indie pop band from Hanwell in West London. They started out as a duo with Marion Turnbull on vocals and Oli Bartlett on guitars and synths in 2007, quickly releasing their debut album, the cheery electro pop "Feel the Beat and Do it Anyway!", receiving airplay on BBC 6 music and a cult indie pop following. An overlong hiatus followed before the surprise release in 2022 of their second album, "Never Twice the Same Colour", a bold album of jangly guitars and rich orchestration all wrapped up into 3 minute pop songs.

Expect lashings of boy/girl harmonies, sing along melodies and grooves that will get you jumping around!


Praise for "Feel the Beat and do it Anyway!"

It's a smiling, sacred modern pop beauty.



Lashings of very tasty material indeed.



Marion's vocals and that synth do wonders for your psyche!
