A classically-trained multi-instrumentalist with five albums and two books to her name, Emily Maguire is truly “a talent to be reckoned with” (R2 Magazine), her strong, thought-provoking lyrics, supremely expressive vocals and stunning live performances winning her fans across the globe.
After living in a shack in the Australian bush where she made her first two albums, Emily returned to the UK to tour with American legend Don McLean and make her third album ‘Believer’, a ‘masterpiece’ according to Maverick Magazine, with two singles playlisted on BBC Radio 2.
As an advocate for mental health, Emily has been featured several times on BBC Radio 4 including Woman’s Hour, Loose Ends and Midweek, where she was interviewed by Libby Purves talking about her book ‘Start Over Again’.
After 2 years out of action, Emily is now back with a new book ‘Notes From The North Pole’ and an acclaimed new album ‘A Bit of Blue’, produced by Nigel Butler, which follows a dark time in her life and is a hauntingly beautiful testament to the human spirit.
With its release funded entirely by her fans, ‘A Bit Of Blue’ retains all the underlying trademarks of her emotive, lyric-rich songs.
