Heather Maloney is a Massachusetts-based singer songwriter with a soulful voice and songwriting style that explores themes of spirituality, transformation, and impermanence. No Depression raved "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."
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.
Maloney celebrates the release her 2018 EP, Just Enough Sun. The six songs (five new originals and a cover of Dylan's "A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall") were recorded as mostly single-take, live performances. The result is a raw and deeply vulnerable collection introspective and relatable songs.
Ken Yates is a Canadian folk musician who recently won a Canadian Folk Music Award for 2017 Songwriter of the Year.
