"... I’ve no doubt that, having heard Lydia, this new album
will live up to expectations..."
- Folk Radio UK
"... truly triumphant..."- Mahogany
A defiantly solo song, The Magic Lantern - the musical moniker of Jamie Doe - chose to record Lydia live in one take. Reminiscent of the personal, oblique narrative songs of Elliot Smith and hushed intimacy of Sufjan Stevens, Lydia demonstrates Jamie’s undeniable conviction.
The magic of words...
• Lydia premiered exclusively on Folk Radio UK.
• The Magic Lantern has received praise from numerous publications including The Guardian, Acoustic Magazine, Mahogany and M Magazine.
• He has also been supported by BBC 6Music ’s Lauren Laverne, Tom Robinson, BBC Radio 3’s Late Junction and BBC Radio 2’s Jamie Cullum, Mark Radcliffe and Bob Harris among others.
