ORIGINS...

Magnum Stagnum Music Group is the brainchild of Bleu VanDyke. Like many area musicians Bleu’s musical interest started at an early age while singing along to his parents Beatles records. In 5th grade he took up the trombone and played in concert band, jazz band, marching band, pep band, pit band, and was basically a full-blown band nerd. He started playing guitar and writing songs at 14 and was in several area garage bands until, at 20, he auditioned for Mustard Plug, for whom he played for about 3 years before returning to college.

THE HIATUS...

After College Bleu worked and didn’t play much music, just acoustic guitar but no bands. Family life was his primary focus, but music was always there on the back burner simmering and bubbling quietly.

THE REBIRTH...

In early 2012 Bleu used some tax return money to buy a Tascam DP-08, a microphone, headphones and monitors, so that he could start recording some of his creations. He quickly outgrew 8 tracks and a year later invested in a Tascam DP-24 and more microphones, and began recording other bands. Not satisfied with simply recording Bleu’s ambitions grew into the idea for a record label and in late 2014, shortly after his 40th birthday, Magnum Stagnum was born.

THE VISION...
