The Magic Lantern, moniker of singer-songwriter and composer Jamie Doe returns to the Barrel House with an ensemble drawn from London's thriving alternative jazz scene to launch his new album 'To Everything A Season’. 



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. 
 
Born in Australia before moving to the UK at 12, The Magic Lantern blurs the boundaries between folk, jazz and contemporary music. He 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. Of that cathartic moment, Jamie says 'I saw myself in my father, and my daughter in me and I felt joy and grief in overlapping waves, beautiful and complicated, which continue to ripple outward' These songs are my attempt to make sense of this incredible time - ‘A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted’
 
‘To Everything A Season’ is due for release in October 2024.
 
Quotes: 
 
 "Gorgeous, beautiful. This stopped me in my tracks. Slightly surreal, in all the right ways. He’s just one of those artists who sounds totally like himself."
Jamie Cullum, BBC Radio 2 
 
“Extraordinary. Beautiful poised singing, amazing lyrics and hypnotic production”
Tom Robinson, BBC 6 Music
 
"Excellent, intriguing and compelling, a man to watch"
The Guardian
 
“Absolutely beautiful, SO beautiful!”
Huw Stephens, BBC Radio 1
 
“Throughout these moving four minutes, we experience the immersive glow of love. It’s an overwhelming weight and a dazzling thing of beauty, all at once bringing pain and joy, passion and euphoria – but perhaps most of all, as Doe sings in his lyrics, it gives us purpose and fills our days with meaning. “Without love a clanging cymbal be.”
Atwood Magazine 
 
Dreamy, beautiful. Something very, very special. ”
Lauren Laverne, BBC 6 Music
