Back in May, singer-songwriters Andy Shauf and Julia Jacklin played a joint concert at Chicago’s Lincoln Hall. Consequence of Sound and teamed up to live stream the show, but in case you missed it, Shauf’s performance of “The Magician” has now been uploaded for your viewing pleasure.

Taken off Shauf’s Polaris Music Prize-nominated album, The Party, the singer-songwriter takes the center stage during the performance as he’s surrounded by a full complement of percussion, bass guitar, woodwinds, and keys. Strumming an acoustic guitar, Shauf steps into the shoes of a magician as he sings: “Sidesteps to a death-defying feat/ Wait for him to reappear/ Look close, you’ll see him sweat the most/ Each time his options disappear.”

Shauf is currently supporting The Party while touring Canada and Europe. Find the complete schedule below.
