The Magic Lantern is the musical moniker of British Australian musician Jamie Doe. ‘To The Islands’ is his stunning third album is out now.

Drawing on a wide range of influences from folk, jazz and contemporary music, The Magic Lantern is an artist dedicated to remedying the anxiety and fear present in us all. ‘To The Islands’ was written following a tumultuous journey to Jamie’s childhood home in Australia after nearly 10 years away, and explores memory and hope in a world of near constant uncertainty.

It draws on a wide range of sounds and textures from folk finger picking to pulsating grooves; lush string quintet lyricism to narcotic late night saxophone jams; and a Mark Hollis-esque talent for leaving space around the vocal, all united by Jamie’s instantly recognisable voice and inimitable song- writing style.

He has received praise from numerous supporters including BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens, BBC 6 Music’s Guy Garvey, Lauren Laverne,Gideon Coe, Tom Robinson, BBC Radio 3’s Late Junction and BBC Radio 2’s Jamie Cullum, Mark Radcliffe and Bob Harris among others; and publications such as The Guardian, Acoustic Magazine and Atwood Magazine.
