Winter is hard, but also rewarding. It’s a time when the outside forces you in, where you find yourself conversing with your own voice, your own demons. It’s important to have those conversations, and sometimes it’s important to share them, to share space with others and to know that you’re human, and not just a flightless bird hibernating ’til the spring. 

Well those are the thoughts of Magpie, and through that enduring winter fog, enters the flying force that is Magpie Diaries, ready to share a brief moment of reward and pungent warmth. An evening of new and old songs, stories and escapades, delivered via a musical party of six, blending smooth soul country, meets alternative psychedelic folk rock, led by the soulful voice of singer songwriter Magpie Johnston.

Enjoying the consummate distraction of family life, Magpie and wife Jessica, who also run the unique outdoor music venue Dashville, have spent sporadic time over the last decade or so, working up songs in their home-built studio in the bush. The moments fleeting, always between hosting festivals or raising babies. It’s not uncommon for Jess to have a bubba strapped to her back, in order to nail that perfect drum take with her trademark vibe, a style that lends towards Magpie’s soulful lyrical approach. Their harmonies the final ingredient which delivers the smooth soul country sound that is the Magpie Diaries.
