The big launch is on the 21 of September 2021! To coincide with their big launch in the Lyric Theatre in Bridport, a live album of the lockdown gig recorded on the 21st of March 2021 in the empty theatre, will be released too!
A year in the planning Magdalena and The Mystical Birds are able to reveal, at last, some of what they have been up to during all performing restrictions. They recorded a album Lyric Lockdown Live, named after their unique band launch at the beginning of the Lockdown.
Polish singer-songwriter Magdalena Atkinson has made West Dorset her home and following two acclaimed solo albums with producer Steve Jones they joined with percussionist Darren Coleman and Bass player Drew Crow Star to form Magdalena and the Mystical Birds.
Rooted in Folk music, there are touches of Jazz, Blues and Chanson. Drawing on the musical backgrounds of the four members they add Darren’s infectious Brazilian grooves, grown from his time leading The Blackdown Samba to Steve’s past with Folk/Prog pioneers Heron and his decade with Mungo Jerry to the Punk poetry of Drew and Magdalena’s distinctive central European delivery. The result is a melting pot of music that never fails to stir the soul.
Magdalena’s songs are drawn from the self-awareness of life spent traveling and a sharing of universal themes of empowerment, spirituality and positivity. She says “I am a singer songwriter who dares... I dare to sing, dare to share, dare to enjoy my life to the fullest! My music is my healer, my companion, the voice of my soul”
Praise for Magdalena Atkinson:
“Her songs are so touching that it has brought tears to my eyes as the words are so poignant.”
“Her music inspires, fills me and so many others with lightness and hope.”
"Magdalena's story is of one of life's virtuosos. She has indisputable talents in musicianship as poet, songwriter, composer, singer, and performance artist.”
During the evening, an artist Marina Renee Cemmick - a creator of Mystical Birds artwork - will create the live backdrops of the birds, adding to the event her unique talent and art. Marina grew up in Bridport and she is the creator of the murals at the entrance to the Lyric Theatre.
