Magdalena Darby

Bio

Magdalena Darby who enraptured audiences in London last year with her artistic interpretation of torch songs deserves to be called a world-class performer in her genre. Originally the term "torch song" came from the expression "to carry a torch for someone", which came into fashion in the period associated with the glamour and brutality of prohibition America. Torch songs express emotions and tell a story mostly about broken love affairs or just the longing for the perfect match.

Based on styles introduced by singers such as Billie Holiday, Edith Piaf, and Marlene Dietrich; Magdalena Darby has an ever expanding repertoire of well known standards as well as lesser known and unusual material, such as 'You Don’t Know What Love Is', 'If He Walked Into My Life Today', and 'La Vie En Rose'.

Magdalena Darby has maintained her European identity and, with her striking and elegant stage presentation, she easily captures her audience with her soul-baring performance. That, together with a sensitive and tantalising musicianship and a voice to match, explains why people come to back to hear her again and again.
