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.
