From playing snowy shows in the French Alps to opening for The Cat Empire along tropical shores, Cairns independent singer/songwriter Bobby Maguire delivers his infectious brand of rock in a style evocative of Thirsty Merc, The Cure and Bernard Fanning. As a teenager, chest surgeries at the Royal Children’s Hospital put a stop to Maguire’s motorbike passion, allowing a chance for him to pickup the guitar. Soon, he was performing to crowds of thousands at festivals with a music video featuring on Channel Ten by age 16. Despite releasing his self-titled album mere weeks before the Covid-19 pandemic hit Maguire has continued to produce new music and videos which have been lauded by press and listeners. His latest release is a fiery new single called "Exoskeleton", written and recorded during lockdown as an expression of frustration as well as a message of inspiration to those feeling trapped. The song is accompanied by an action packed film clip featuring car stunts, kidnapping and a return of the mysterious Masked Man from Maguire’s "Fight the Fear" music video. This energetic track features thick guitar riffs, angsty vocals and a catchy chorus audiences will be singing well before the end of the song. In a show of support for those struggling at the moment Bobby Maguire has given fans the option to pay if and what they want to download Exoskeleton via bandcamp.com.

Great imagery in the lyrics. Your voice is clear and honest it is refreshing and goes well with the dirty bass in the chorus. Can't wait to hear more.
