NASHVILLE, TN – Siobhan Magnus is wasting no time following up her acclaimed run on last season’s American Idol. In addition to releasing an EP last month with her band, Lunar Valve, Magnus has recorded sides for her first solo project. The four song session is in stark contrast to her Lunar Valve EP. Wistful lyrics blend with Magnus’ distinctive rawness to expose a side of the singer many fans not yet heard.

The project began amid a whirlwind of co-writing with Nashville-based Pacific International Music (PIM) writers; Chaise Flanders, Mitzi Dawn and Producer Michael Flanders. Originating from Australia, Flanders is a Producer/Songwriter, whose past production credits include Jill King, Coles Whalen, Josh Arnold, Garrison Starr, Natalie Howard, and a score of other acts. On working with Magnus, Flanders says, “Siobhan has her own colors she paints with, and I just filled in the blanks on our vast canvas.”

Flanders organic approach to production is illustrated by his close involvement in a project from start to finish. With Magnus, adapting to her sound came first and foremost. The Producer explains, “PIM is just a great creative space....a small group of writers that can change feathers quickly and take a project to the next level.” After choosing four songs from the writing sessions, the basic rhythm tracks were cut at Fireside Studios and then brought back to PIM.

The songs that sprung from the session run the gamut, from whimsical to insightful; self conscious to self-empowering. The first scheduled single, “Where My Heart Should Be,” is a poignant mix of eerie imagery combined with quiet hope, sung over haunting beats and driving synthesizers. With lines such as, “People saw me and all they saw was strange,” Magnus comments on the need people feel to label and judge one another, based on appearances.

This theme of feeling ostracized for being different emerges in another track, “Lay Down And Die.” Magnus proclaims “I couldn’t understand why I never fit in. I was living in two worlds full of contradiction.” Set against a funk induced bass groove, Magnus gives the kind of inspired vocal performance that made her a standout on Idol. “Going Down” is a more stripped-down affair, both musically and lyrically, and advocates the acceptance of a lover’s faults to the point of mutual ruin.

Though sonically treading new ground, fans can expect the same sense of balance between sincerity and grit that they have come to expect from the raucous Idol rocker on her first solo effort.

The first single, “Where My Heart Should Be,” is scheduled for release May 1st and will be available on iTunes.

You can download a zip file with all 3 singles here for $5.00:

However, if I remember correctly it's less expensive to download each song separately from iTunes.

That definitely would've been ideal and she would've still been on the spotlight. But I'm happy she's finally heading in the right direction..

I know. It's like it took her some time to figure this out but I'm hopeful that it will be worth the wait. She is so talented and deserves a break.

Using this post to just paste together some of the more important information this article tells us about Siobhan's Nashville sessions solo project to date. It seems clear the writer got to hear the new songs.

However, we should keep in mind they've said elsewhere (siofans) that Sio's mgmnt tried to get the article withdrawn, and they say the information in it is subject to change. So with that caveat:



The 4-song solo set overall

The four song session is in stark contrast to her Lunar Valve EP.

The songs...run the gamut, from whimsical to insightful; self conscious to self-empowering.

Wistful lyrics blend with Magnus’ distinctive rawness to expose a side of the singer many fans not yet heard.

Though sonically treading new ground, fans can expect the same sense of balance between sincerity and grit that they have come to expect from the raucous Idol rocker on her first solo effort.

“Siobhan has her own colors she paints with"



1. "Where My Heart Should Be"

The first single, “Where My Heart Should Be,” is scheduled for release May 1st and will be available on iTunes.

...“Where My Heart Should Be,” is a poignant mix of eerie imagery combined with quiet hope, sung over haunting beats and driving synthesizers.

With lines such as, “People saw me and all they saw was strange,” Magnus comments on the need people feel to label and judge one another, based on appearances.



2. "Lay Down and Die"

This theme of feeling ostracized for being different emerges in another track, “Lay Down And Die.”

Magnus proclaims “I couldn’t understand why I never fit in. I was living in two worlds full of contradiction.”

Set against a funk induced bass groove, Magnus gives the kind of inspired vocal performance that made her a standout on Idol.



3. “Going Down”

“Going Down” is a more stripped-down affair, both musically and lyrically, and advocates the acceptance of a lover’s faults to the point of mutual ruin.



4. Title not disclosed yet

(We have no information yet on the 4th song co-written by Siobhan for her debut solo EP.)
