BLUE PHILLY MAGIC has nationally known original songs but primarily covers and pays tribute to the great Philly icon Ted Mills former lead singer of Blue Magic and Norman Harris who was one of the renowned architects of the classic Philly Sound.

Wilson Lambert’s BLUE PHILLY MAGIC featuring Wilson Lambert takes all of its listeners on a hypnotizing journey dealing with affairs of the heart. Upon hearing BLUE PHILLY MAGIC one can clearly recognize the distinctive style of dreamy, lush, and buttery Philly Soul. Classic Soul Music Critics have indicated that Wilson Lambert is very close to the great Ted “Wizard” Mills (former lead singer of Blue Magic) in atmosphere, tonality, and vocal clarity. Experience the power and aura of lush, dreamy, Philly soul that catapulted Blue Magic/Ted Mills above the Stylistics as Philadelphia’s top falsetto soft-soul group in booking Wilson Lambert’s BLUE PHILLY MAGIC. The sound and style of BLUE PHILLY MAGIC is captivating and suddenly as if by magic, an enchanted aura of romance is felt by everyone as this magic wand waving vocal quartet tell the tales of love through the eyes of lovers lost in each other’s eyes and broken hearts.
