Heather Maloney
 
Heather Maloney is a singer-songwriter-poet with knock you dead vocals and “terrific lyrics that cut to the chase” (Huffington Post). She weaves elements of folk, rock, jazz and pop to create a unique sound and a powerful and compassionate message that leaves folks saying “she sounds like... Heather Maloney.” Heather had one of her first public shows at a small coffee shop in Northampton Massachusetts in September of 2009. So nervous she had to be prodded onto stage. In July of 2011 she walked out onto the stage at the Calvin Theater in front of 1,500 fans of the Grammy Award winning artist Jonny Lang, and brought them to their feet in applause. Jonny immediately asked her to open three more shows and called her “an extremely talented songwriter and incredibly great singer.” Heather has since fallen in love with performing, having played over 350 shows and sharing the stage with such celebrated acts as Jonny Lang, Chip Taylor & Carrie Rodriquez, Vance Gilbert, Dala, David Wax Museum, Devil Makes Three, Caravan of Thieves, Jeffrey Gaines, Jill Sobule, Meg Hutchinson, and many others.
And the buzz has just begun. In the past year she has been nominated for an Independent Music Award, chosen as an emerging artist at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival and signed on with Signature Sounds to release her upcoming album due out January 2013.
