The Magic Lantern

Acclaimed UK-based singer-songwriter The Magic Lantern is playing his highly anticipated first Australian tour. Joined by Sydney-based ARIA nominated musician Emily-Rose Sarkova.

The Magic Lantern aka Jamie Doe

The Magic Lantern is the musical 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 at 12, his songs examine the limitless depth of human experience with devastating, joyous results.

“Extraordinary. Beautiful poised singing, amazing lyrics. Hypnotic!”

– Tom Robinson, BBC Radio 6 Music


“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


Emily-Rose Sarkova

Joining Jamie is ARIA nominated musician Emily-Rose Sarkova with her project Emily-Rose and The Wild Things. Her debut album ‘Upon These Open Skins’ has been played on major radio stations nationally and their 2022 Australia-wide tour saw performances hailed as ‘the highest of artistry’. There is something for everyone in this tumbling ocean of sounds – from the post-rock-tinged outro of Complex Ships, to the jazz trio of Faces and cushion of silvery experimental folk sound in Nick of Time.


Special guests Tanj will also be opening the evening with their boundary-pushing folk duo of violin and double bass. Tanj is Naomi Jones and Tim Merrikin, hailing from Newcastle/Muloobinba, Influenced by the traditional and the experimental, their performances range from serious to frivolous – a musical equivalent of a laugh and a hug between friends.
