Best-known for her strong, thought-provoking lyrics and supremely expressive vocals, Emily Maguire’s songs have been played regularly on BBC Radio 2 and have won her fans across the globe.

Originally from London, Emily spent four years living in a recycled shack on a farm out in the Australian bush where she made goats cheese to finance her music. Following the release of her critically acclaimed albums ‘Stranger Place’ and ‘Keep Walking’, Emily returned to the UK touring extensively with some of the world’s great singer-songwriters including Don McLean, Eric Bibb, Paul Brady, Dennis Locorriere and Roddy Frame. Her third album ‘Believer’, a ‘masterpiece’ according to Maverick Magazine, won rave reviews in the music press with two songs playlisted on BBC Radio 2.

A classically-trained multi-instrumentalist, Emily is truly ‘a talent to be reckoned with’ (R2 Magazine). Her fourth album ‘Bird Inside A Cage’, released in 2013, was produced by Nigel Butler (k.d.lang, Will Young, Robbie Williams), known to TV lovers as one of the producers on X Factor. With its release funded entirely by Emily's fans, ‘Bird Inside A Cage’ is a bold departure from her previous recordings while still retaining all the underlying trademarks of her emotive, lyric-rich songs.
