The Magic Lantern is the moniker of singer-songwriter and composer Jamie Doe, an artist blurring the boundaries between folk, jazz and contemporary music. Born in Australia before moving to the UK at 12, The Magic Lantern has released four full length albums and toured the UK, Europe and Australia alongside This Is The Kit, Sam Lee and Alabaster Deplume among others.

His upcoming fifth album ’To Everything A Season’ was written and recorded in the twelve months following his fathers death and his daughters birth. Like the effervescent new life that has so loudly accompanied its creation, themes of cycles, loops and new beginnings in these songs connect and overlap with what’s come before. Reaching forwards and backwards, like threads of a helix in a genome. The result is a study in holding both ends of the circle of life, one in each hand, and feeling every second.

Touring with a quartet drawn from London’s thriving alternative jazz scene, The Magic Lantern’s live show combines spirited improvisation with taught ensemble writing and arresting vocal lyricism to craft songs that examine the limitless depth of human experience with devastating, joyous results.
