I am delighted to announce the release of ‘Sunshine’, the first single from my forthcoming album ‘A Light To Follow’.

It’s a song about looking forward, about hope and determination, that sense of relief and happiness you feel when the storm is over.

You can listen to ‘Sunshine’ and read the lyrics here.  You can also listen on Spotify but if you would like to support my music, you can download the song from Bandcamp for just £1.


My tour of northern New South Wales finished at the weekend with gigs at Pearces Creek Hall and Jiggi Hall followed by an impromptu house concert in The Channon, thanks to the lovely Terri Nicholson.

Big love and thanks to all the hall promoters and everyone who came to see us play in NSW – we had such a fantastic time and will definitely be coming back… if you want me to let you know when, please join my mailing list.

I am continuing on my mission to bring live music to small halls in rural communities (inspired by Woodfordia’s brilliant Festival of Small Halls).  Tickets are now on sale for my next tour in February-March when we’ll be playing halls in south-east Queensland – click here for all the info. Please spread the word if you have friends or family in the area.

Hope all’s well in your world.


The first single ‘Sunshine’ from my new album ‘A Light To Follow’ was played for the first time on BBC Radio 2 yesterday on ‘Good Morning Sunday’ which felt very apt as Aled Jones gave me my first break on that programme.  Here’s the link so you can listen again (scroll to 1:23:05):


My recent tours of Australia have included some very memorable gigs, such as performing last Friday night at Eatonsville Hall to an audience that included two possums and a koala!

It’s 13 years since I wrote this song and Greenpeace used it for their Copenhagen climate change campaign ‘Love Letters To The Future’.  It’s now COP27.  Has anything changed since then except the climate?

This is us performing ‘Woke Up’ at my recent show at The Majestic Theatre in Pomona, Australia.

Thanks so much to all of you who came to hear my songs in my Sunshine Coast Hinterland shows last month.  We had such a great time.

Last week I was interviewed by Mick O’Regan on ABC North Coast ahead of my tour of northern New South Wales which starts this Friday.  You can listen again here (scroll to 3:01:45).

Here are all the details of the tour – please help us spread the word if you’ve got friends or family in the area: https://emilymaguire.com/nsw-tour-2022/

I’m also looking forward to returning to The BUg (Brisbane Unplugged Gigs) at New Farm Bowls Club in Brisbane next Tuesday.  Also playing is Andy Penkow.  The blackboard starts at 7.15pm, we’re on at 9pm.  Tickets are just $10 on the door.


Thanks to everyone who came to see us play The Majestic Theatre in Pomona last weekend.  We had such a great night.  I’m looking forward to doing it all again at Eudlo Hall tomorrow night and Maleny Community Centre next Saturday.  Tickets are on sale now – please spread the word if you have friends locally you think might enjoy my songs.

Eudlo Hall

Maleny Community Centre

I had such a fantastic time playing Neurum Creek Festival and then The Junk Bar in Brisbane.  Thanks to everyone who came and listened and gave us such great support.

Now I’m looking forward to three local shows in October at Pomona, Eudlo and Maleny in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland.  Tickets are on sale now – if you have friends locally you think might be interested, please share this link:


I’m very happy to announce the dates for my tour of northern New South Wales, taking place in November and December this year.  I’ve enjoyed so much playing community halls here in Queensland and so I’m really looking forward to meeting the locals and singing my songs in halls across northern New South Wales.  I’ll be performing on acoustic guitar and piano with my husband Christian Dunham playing bass.  Details, booking links and a live video can be found at https://emilymaguire.com/nsw-tour-2022/.  If you’ve got friends in the area please spread the word.
