Set up by husband and wife team Dr. Linley Hamilton and Maggie Doyle, Magy’s Farm is a music space at their farm, providing opportunities for musicians to play, rehearse, record and perform.
In July 2020 they established the Collective, which was designed to bring elite talent to the next level and secure pathways into the industry for the most gifted young performers.
Creating an environment where talent can be mentored in a safe space and with a team ethic, where experience meets raw ability and positivity provides the capacity for positive development.
Respecting experience and moving the focus of the farm from cultivating the land to growing the music through mentorship, performance and embracing new technologies.
Identifying talent with a passion and commitment, and creating opportunities for imagination in conditions that inspire innovation and support youth development.
Focused on securing pathways into the industry for the most gifted young performers, the Collective is currently host to five girls from UU Music: Niamh Murray, Cara Quinn, Rhian Brownlow, Clodagh May and Lara O’Donnell.
The Collective members are producing amazing original songs that have been recorded and produced by an eleven-person team of mentors.
A mentoring team specifically chosen to pass on learning through industry experience at the highest level, with songwriting and vocal coaches, instrumentalists and music business advisors.
Provision of a rehearsal space fully equipped with KAWAI piano, drum kit, PA and amps and a wonderful video team available on request.
Opportunities have been taken during lockdown to provide a video and audio option for YouTube Premier Concerts and promotional assets. These will continue and are available on request.
