Growing up in New Jersey, Maloney studied opera and jazz singing, but in a change of artistic direction she lived at a silent retreat for three years where she honed her skills as a songwriter, primarily in the folk idiom.
She self-released a pair of records, her debut, Razor’s Edge, in 2009 and Time & Pocket Change in 2011 before signing with Signature Sounds Recordings in Northampton, Mass. In a three-year span she released Heather Maloney, Woodstock and Making Me Break.
Working with the Boston-based band Darlingside, Maloney’s 2014 cover of Joni Mitchell’s “Woodstock” drew praise from critics, including a piece in the New York Times. Graham Nash also lauded the effort.
In addition to the interview, Boris will feature a wide range of Maloney’s music.
