The Magic Lantern is the musical moniker of Jamie Doe, an artist dedicated to addressing the fear and anxiety present in us all. Following his stunning third album ‘To The Islands’, his new EP ‘The Life That I Have’ released in January 2020, is a bridge between being and becoming, and confronts, sits with and acknowledges the inevitability of a loss witnessed in slow motion and the everyday moments of joy that sustain us.
