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 spellbinding live performances winning her fans across the globe.
Emily's story is a remarkable one. Classically trained as a child on cello, piano, flute and recorder, she taught herself the guitar and started writing songs when she found herself stuck at home with a chronic illness called fibromyalgia pain syndrome.
Following an intensive tour of Germany in 2014, while rehearsing for the recording of her instrumental album, Emily developed chronic tendonitis in both arms, forcing her to cancel all her gigs and leaving her unable to play her instruments for 18 months, which triggered a severe depressive episode.
Once recovered, she released her hauntingly beautiful fifth album A Bit Of Blue in 2017. Financed again by her fans, the album received rave reviews in the music press. Emily also published a new book, Notes From The North Pole, a collection of poetry, prose and lyrics.
Songs from A Bit Of Blue have been played on BBC Radio across the UK with the uplifting single For Free played on Radio 2. Together with her partner and bass player Christian Dunham, Emily has been touring arts centres across the UK with a stunning new show, delighted to be singing her songs again and entrancing audiences wherever she goes.
