Singer, songwriter, poet, composer, multi-instrumentalist and mental health advocate, Emily Maguire’s five albums and two books have established her as truly a talent to be reckoned with. With a remarkable, inspiring story to tell, she has been featured many times on Radio 2 and Radio 4, her heartfelt, thought-provoking lyrics, supremely expressive vocals and spellbinding live performances winning her fans across the globe.

From living in a shack in the Australian bush where she financed her first two albums by making goats cheese, to playing the Royal Albert Hall with Don McLean, Emily’s life has been a rollercoaster. Her first book ‘Start Over Again’ caused a sensation when it was launched on Radio 2 on World Mental Health Day in 2010, a brutally honest and poignant portrayal of her struggles with bipolar disorder.

Described as ‘exhilarating and transformational’ (RnR Magazine), Emily’s songs and poetry have the power to uplift, comfort and inspire in equal measure. In November 2018, to celebrate the launch of ‘Meditation Mind’, her new book of poetry inspired by her Buddhist practice, Emily is performing a series of intimate gigs reading her poems and singing songs accompanied by acoustic guitar and double-bass.
