Merry Christmas and last gig of the year!

Well here we are at the end of another year, and what an eventful year its been. From a Magic Lantern point of view its been a year of huge change, some sadness, lots of crazy things and real hope and excitement for the future. This year more than any other has made me realise exactly what it is about writing and performing songs that I love so much and that intangible ‘thing’ keeps me going, drives me on and keeps me upright. The ‘Any Path Will Do’ tour that I did in November with FaceOmeter was wonderful and there’s a lovely write up of it with some pictures here on FaceOmeter’s website. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you all for continuing to support me as the Magic Lantern  – whether thats in coming to shows or buying records, spreading the word or just sending some good vibrations – it all counts and it means a huge amount to me.

I am now ready to start recording the second Magic Lantern album with the working title ‘Love of Too Much Living’. I hope it will be out by the summer with a single out before that. As ever with these things though, time is its own master, but by telling you all I have given myself some extra pressure to make sure it happens.

There is one last Magic Lantern before the year ends at the Vortex in Dalston, London. It will be with a number of my best musical friends including Fred Thomas, Zac Gvi, Ben Davis and Alex Bonney, if you can make it it would be lovely to see you there.

  • Sunday 23 December – The Vortex, 11 Gillet Street, London N16 8AZ. 8pm, £8

Have a lovely Christmas and look forward to seeing you all in the new year!

big love!
