Best known for her thought-provoking lyrics and “supremely expressive vocals”(Rock’n’Reel), Emily Maguire‘s songs have been played regularly on BBC Radio 2 and have won her fans across the globe.

Classically trained on cello, piano and flute, Emily taught herself the guitar and started writing songs when she found herself stuck at home with a chronic illness. Once she was back on her feet, Emily spent four years living in a shack out in the Australian bush where she made her first two albums.

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 new album Bird Inside A Cage was released in July 2013.
