With five albums and three books to her name, British singer-songwriter, composer, multi-instrumentalist and poet Emily Maguire is truly “a talent to be reckoned with” (RnR Magazine, UK). With a remarkable, inspiring story to tell, she has been featured many times in interviews and playlists on BBC national radio, her thought-provoking lyrics, supremely expressive voice and spellbinding live performances winning her fans across the globe.
Since releasing her first critically acclaimed album ‘Stranger Place’ in 2004, Emily has toured the UK extensively with her husband, producer and bass player Christian Dunham. Together they have played a huge range of venues from major concert halls including the Royal Albert Hall with American legend Don McLean, regional theatres with Eric Bibb and Dr Hook, Emily’s own shows in arts centres across the country, and most recently intimate acoustic performances in bookshops and Buddhist centres promoting Emily’s new book of Buddhist poetry ‘Meditation Mind’. In Australia, Emily’s songs have been played many times on ABC radio stations with the title track of her second album ‘Keep Walking’ playlisted on national ABC Radio.
Since publishing her first book ‘Start Over Again’ in 2010 where she revealed her struggles with bipolar disorder, Emily has done many gigs for mental health hospitals and groups across the UK. With her constant aim of uplifting, inspiring and comforting the people who hear her songs, Emily’s work in mental health has been internationally recognised by the US-based International Society for Bipolar Disorders, who awarded her the 2019 Mogens Schou Award for Public Service and Advocacy.
Now based back in the Australian bush where she began her career, Emily and Christian are currently working on her sixth studio album.
