Heather Maloney’s April Fools Day release “Time & Pocket Change” is an album rich with quirks and passion. Rooted in indie-pop, T&PC is a play between the coffeehouse intimacy of folk and the dramatic narrative of opera. Unfettered vocals and guitar lines move through daring arrangements and enforce her "stop-you-dead" lyrics. (Rochester City News)
Since her head-first dive into the indie music world in November of 2009, Heather has co-written with Grammy-nominated composer Hui Cox (Richie Havens, Baba Olatunji, Liza Minelli), played more than 200 shows, and shared the stage with many celebrated acts like Meg Hutchinson, The David Wax Museum, Guy Davis, Caravan of Thieves, Carsie Blanton, Mike & Ruthy, Jill Sobule, and The Stone Coyotes.
Heather’s critically acclaimed debut album Cozy Razor's Edge, filled with “poetic and powerful” lyrics that “penetrate the core of humanity,” continues to be celebrated in the press, on the radio and in independent film. Its title track was voted by WRSI The River listeners as one of the best songs of 2009, Worcester Magazine calls it “stunning folk-rock… tender moans tucked in tight with brisk musicianship.”, and the Portsmouth Herald says "Sharp, poignant lyrics housed in clever acoustic compositions, accented by Maloney's melodious,'operatic' tendencies, are really what separates her music from straight ahead, folky pop tunes. You have to hear it to fully understand."
Heather tours all over the East, performing songs from Time & Pocket Change, alongside a relentless stream of new songwriting.
