Magnet gig in London

 Type:Culture, Music

Singer/songwriter Magnet is back in the UK for a gig following the release of his third album 'The Tourniquet' last year.

Magnet, who's real name is Even Johansen, has continuously received great reviews from British music press and his latest album was released in August 2005.

Magnet says his music follows in the footsteps of traditional folkdom and modern surrealism, treading a neat path between the two. He draws upon a vast array of influences, from the dusty warmth of Gram Parsons to the ethereal electronica of Air, tenderly etching out the mark that is his own unique sound. Influential music magazine NME has likened Magnet to artists Tim Buckley and Coldplay, and others have placed him in the ranks of such names as Johnny Cash, Elliott Smith, Beck and the Doves.
