The Magic Numbers are an English pop rock band of two pairs of brothers and sisters from Greenford.
Romeo Stodart (lead guitar, vocals), his sister Michele (bass, vocals, keyboard), Angela Gannon (melodica, percussion, glockenspiel, vocals) and her brother Sean (drums).
The Stodarts are the children of a Scottish father and a Portuguese mother and were born in Trinidad in the Caribbean, where their mother was an opera singer and had her own TV show. When the family fled an Islamic coup attempt there in 1990, they were raised in New York. In the mid-1990s, when Romeo was 16 and Michele was 10, they moved to London.
The Gannons are of Irish descent but lived in Hanwell, London where they became friends with their neighbours the Stodarts. Prior to forming The Magic Numbers, Romeo and Sean spent time trying to form a band together under various guises, and previously performed under the name ‘Guess’.
The group was formed in 2002, releasing their debut album titled The Magic Numbers on 13 June 2005.
Their follow-up album, Those the Brokes was released on 6 November 2006, and their most recent album “The Runaway” was released on June 6, 2010.
