Magnus continues to record today. In the year 2012, she released the record Moonbaby.
Siobhan Evelyn Magnus was born to an Irish American working class family on March 15, 1990, in Barnstable, Massachusetts. Her dad, Alan, was made to retire from his occupation as a truck driver as a result of handicap, and her mom, Colleen, worked in a bookstore for quite some time before being laid off.
Years after, she played the part of Dorothy in another production of Oz, the performance recorded for a WB reality show called High Drama. By the time Magnus graduated from Barnstable High in 2008, she’d performed in 36 of the school’s productions.
Magnus afterward unsuccessfully auditioned for the Berklee College of Music. After attending Salem State College for only one session, she became a glassblower’s trainee and sang for a group called Lunar Valve.
The 19-year old was taken for the show’s ninth season, which premiered on January 12, 2010. Matched against several opponents that contained Crystal Bowersox, Casey James, Lee DeWyze and Michael Lynche, she became among the ultimate six Idol contestants. Magnus’s musical performances contained covers of the Animals’ “House of the Rising Sun” and Chris Isaak’s “Wicked Game.” For her final performance, she sang Aretha Franklin’s “Think.”
Much to her disappointment, Magnus was voted off the show throughout the episode that aired on April 28, 2010, with DeWyze going to win the contest.
Magnus performed in concerts through the entire Massachusetts area in 2011, for example, Cape Cod Music Festival. She co-wrote all of the first tracks for her debut record, Moonbaby, that was released in January 2012.
Her performance was dedicated to the memory of vocalist Patti Page.
