Heather Maloney at the me and thee!
PON THE RELEASE OF MAKING ME BREAK, MALONEY LANDED ON SPIN MAGAZINES ARTIST TO WATCH, WITH ENTHUSIASTIC REVIEWS FROM THE HUFFINGTON POST, CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND, AND NO DEPRESSION. THE LAST SONG ON THE RECORD, NIGHTSTAND DRAWER, BECAME MALONEYS FIRST MAJOR TELEVISION SONG PLACEMENT ON THE CBS SERIES ELEMENTARY.

AS A SIGNATURE SOUNDS ARTIST, MALONEY HAS TOURED NATIONALLY AS A HEADLINER AS WELL AS IN SUPPORT OF ACTS LIKE LAKE STREET DIVE, RODRIGO Y GABRIELA, GARY CLARK JR., COLIN HAY, MARY CHAPIN CARPENTER, AND MANY MORE. IN 2014 SHE COLLABORATED WITH THE RISING BOSTON QUARTET DARLINGSIDE ON THE WOODSTOCK EP, A TRIBUTE TO THE JONI MITCHELL-WRITTEN / CROSBY, STILLS, NASH & YOUNG-COVERED 60S ANTHEM. THE COVER WAS FEATURED ON THE NEW YORK TIMES AND GARNERED ATTENTION FROM GRAHAM NASH HIMSELF, WHO CALLED THE PERFORMANCE, DELICIOUS, REALLY EXCELLENT.

RAISED ON A RECORD PLAYER INSTEAD OF A TV, MALONEY DUG DEEP INTO PER PARENTS RECORD COLLECTIONS FOR ENTERTAINMENT, OBSESSING OVER THE BEATLES JONI MITCHELL, FLEETWOOD MAC, C.S.N.Y., BOB DYLAN, AND MORE. SO ITS NO SURPRISE THAT THE FOLK, POP, AND ROCK GREATS OF THE 60S AND 70S FOUND THEIR WAY INTO HER OWN MUSIC. WITH THOSE INFLUENCES AS A FOUNDATION, AND A STRONG DOSE OF 90S RADIO HITS (FROM WOMEN LIKE FIONA APPLE, ALANIS MORISETTE, BONNIE RAITT, SHERYL CROW, AND OF COURSE, MARIAH CAREY), MALONEY WAS FORMING HER SOUND LONG BEFORE SHE EVEN WROTE A SINGLE LYRIC.  

ACCORDING TO HER MOTHER, HER SINGING CAREER BEGAN IN THE AISLES OF A NORTHERN NEW JERSEY GROCERY STORE, WHERE SHE DEVELOPED A REPUTATION FOR SERENADING SHOPPERS. THE WRITING WOULD COME MUCH LATER, AFTER SPENDING THE FIRST FEW YEARS OF HER EARLY 20S IN A STATE OF SELF-PROCLAIMED MUSICAL A.D.D.. AFTER TRAINING HER VOICE IN CLASSICAL OPERATIC, IMPROVISATIONAL JAZZ AND CLASSICAL INDIAN VOCAL TECHNIQUES, MALONEY WAS SUDDENLY AND OVERWHELMINGLY COMPELLED TO DROP ALL THINGS MUSICAL. TO QUIT MAKING SOUNDS OR NOISE, ALTOGETHER.

SHE FOUND HERSELF LIVING AT A SILENT MEDITATION RETREAT CENTER IN CENTRAL MASSACHUSETTS, WHERE SHE WOULD PRACTICE FOR ALMOST 3 YEARS, STUDYING AND VIPASSANA MEDITATION, POURING OVER RUMI AND RILKE, AND KEEPING A JOURNAL DOCUMENTING DAILY LIFE AT HER COTTAGE IN THE WOODS. IT WAS IN THIS PLACE OF QUIET THAT, IRONICALLY, SHE BEGAN WRITING HER FIRST SONGS. SONGS LARGELY INSPIRED BY HER EXPERIENCES IN MEDITATION, INCLUDING EQUAL PARTS OF THE DARK / UNCOMFORTABLE / TWISTED PARTS OF THE HUMAN MIND, AS WELL AS THE SPARKLING AND BRIEF MOMENTS OF THAT LONGED-FOR, EVER ELUSIVE THING CALLED INSIGHT. MALONEY SAID THAT IF SHE HADNT STARTED WRITING SONGS AT THE MEDITATION CENTER, SHE WOULD BE COMPLETELY COVERED IN TATTOOS, BECAUSE EACH SONG IS ABOUT SOMETHING I REALLY, REALLY WANT TO REMEMBER BADLY  SO I WOULDNT HAVE TO GO THROUGH IT AGAIN.

AND WITH THE SAME SUDDEN AND OVERWHELMING RESOLVE THAT LED HER TO THE MEDITATION CENTER IN THE FIRST PLACE, SHE RE-EMERGED INTO THE MUSIC SPACE WITH A GUITAR AND A FEW SONGS THAT MEANT SOMETHING TO HER. IN THE YEARS SINCE MALONEY HAS LEFT HER LIFE OF SILENCE AND REFLECTION, SHE HAS TOURED ALMOST CONSTANTLY, WRITTEN HUNDREDS OF SONGS, AND SLEPT ON CLOSE TO ONE THOUSAND DIFFERENT PILLOWS.
