Emily Maguire is an independent English singer-songwriter whose strong, thought-provoking lyrics and âthe kind of vocals that will melt your stereoâ [Scene Magazine] have won her fans across the globe.
Originally classically trained as a cellist and pianist, Emily taught herself guitar from Bob Marley songbooks and when illness forced her to give up work, she started writing songs about life and the world outside her window. Years later, back on her feet and fed up with grey skies and concrete, she gave up her flat in London for a wood and tin shack in the Australian bush where she recorded and released her debut album âStranger Placeâ to critical acclaim by the Australian media.
Combining âwisdom, hard-hitting social commentary and beautiful poetryâ (Tsunami Magazine), 'Stranger Place' was ABC Radio âAlbum of the Weekâ across 2 states. The first track âThe Real Worldâ secured her an invitation to perform at the 2005 Singer-Songwriter Festival at The Borderline in London, where she opened for David Bowieâs renowned bassist Gail Ann Dorsey. She made such an impression that promoter Barry Everitt booked her for 2 more gigs on the spot and after she returned to Australia, he wrote on the venue website: âThere is always a place for her on our stage. Her superb songs have grown on all who have seen her and we need her back soon.â
Following a nationwide UK tour in May 2006, Emily returned to Australia to record a new album 'Keep Walking' with bass player Christian Dunham and drummer Shane Nesic. Putting her cello playing to good use, she borrowed a violin, viola and cello and recorded all the parts herself to create her own string ensemble. The result was an album that has been described as "music and lyrics of an artist that goes leaps and bounds beyond... a decades and genre spanning piece of work that should be admired as a whole as much as for each individual song" (IndepenDisc, New York). The title track âKeep Walkingâ is currently on ABC Radio across Australia.
Emily remains passionate about both Bach and Bob Marley, combining her love of classical music with a passion for beats, basslines and acoustic guitar. But it is her words that have the most profound effect on her listeners. In a recent interview with British newspaper The Independent, she said âWhat I want to do with my songs is to give people the same feeling you get when you go and look at the horizon above the sea and you get a sense of silence and space and possibilityâ. Her signature song 'Falling on my Feet', written in a north London hospital, is a prime example.
Back at her shack in the Australian bush following the launch of âKeep Walkingâ at Pianos in New York, Emily is preparing for an unplugged acoustic tour of festivals, clubs and pubs across the UK including the prestigious BBC Radio 2 Cambridge Folk Festival in July 2007.
