A classically-trained multi-instrumentalist, 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.
Living for four years in a shack on a farm in Australia where she made goats cheese to finance her first two albums, Emily returned to the UK in 2007 and toured extensively with some of the world’s great singer-songwriters, including Eric Bibb and American legend Don McLean.
Her third album ‘Believer’, released in 2009, received regular airplay on Radio 2 and won rave reviews in the music press, Maverick Magazine hailing it “a masterpiece”.
Emily’s much-anticipated fourth album, ‘Bird Inside A Cage’, followed in 2013.
With its release funded entirely by her fans, ‘Bird Inside A Cage’ was a bold departure from her previous recordings, while still retaining all the underlying trademarks of her emotive, lyric-rich songs.
As an advocate for mental health, Emily speaks frequently in the media about combating the stigma of mental illness.
She has been featured several times on 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 a 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.
“Exquisite” “A class act” “A true artist” “Music for the soul”
