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 aged 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 months following his daughters birth and his fathers death six weeks later. In their brief meeting in a dementia nursing home, two ends of the circle of life touched. “These songs are my attempt to make sense of this incredible time.”

Working with an ensemble drawn from London’s thriving alternative jazz scene, The Magic Lantern’s live show captures a rich emotional immediacy through spirited improvisation, taught ensemble writing and Jamie’s arresting vocal lyricism to craft songs that examine the limitless depth of the human experience with devastating, joyous results.

‘To Everything A Season’ is released on 4 October 2024.
