Heather Maloney is a western Massachusetts based artist who has received numerous accolades for her startlingly soulful voice and literate songwriting exploring themes of spirituality, transformation, and impermanence. Critics are quickly discovering Maloney's talent with No Depression raving "Her music is riveting, her voice adventurous, her lyrics thought-provoking..." while Blurt Magazine wrote "Heather Maloney is one of the most talented tradition-based singer-songwriters I've heard in some time...the writing is stunning."
If there's a typical path to becoming a songwriter, Maloney didn't follow it. Although she went to school for music and had done plenty of singing, she only began writing tunes a few years ago after living and working for three years in a silent-retreat meditation center in central Massachusetts. "The biggest motivating factor in writing was probably the experiences that I was having here in my meditation practice," she says. "There was the difficulty of it, the suffering of it, and wanting to channel that into something creative, and on the positive side, the insights that came out of my experiences."
Maloney is primed for a breakout 2014. Her collaboration with Massachusetts-based indie folk quartet Darlingside, the Woodstock EP, garnered national attention with a New York Times feature for their cover of Joni Mitchell's classic song, "Woodstock." The EP will be released by Signature Sounds on March 11. Maloney will then embark on an expansive US tour and begin work on her next full-length album.
