Summer by the River: The Magic Lantern
The Magic Lantern is the musical moniker of Jamie Doe, an artist dedicated to remedying the anxiety and fear present in everyone. His third album ‘To The Islands’ explores memory and hope in a world of near constant uncertainty. Working with an ensemble from London’s thriving genre-bending jazz scene, the album draws on a wide range of sounds and textures, from afro-beat grooves, to solo piano, string quintet lyricism to narcotic late night saxophone jams, all united by Jamie’s mellifluous voice and inimitable song-writing style.
