“A class act”


“A true artist”


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 goats cheese to finance 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 Radio 2.

The release of her much-anticipated fourth album ‘Bird Inside A Cage’ in July 2013 was funded entirely by Emily's fans. Produced by Nigel Butler (k.d.lang, Tom Jones, Will Young, Robbie Williams), ‘Bird Inside A Cage’ retained all the underlying trademarks of her emotive, lyric-rich songs.

Emily has toured the UK extensively with
Eric Bibb, Dennis Locorriere, Paul Brady, Glenn Tilbrook and Roddy Frame. Now after 2 years unable to perform due to tendonitis in her arms, Emily is back with a new album, a new book, and a stunning new show. More info
