Roots & Shoots Concerts Series is pleased to present “writer song-singer” Heather Maloney. Maloney has toured nationally as a headliner, as well as in support of acts like Lake Street Dive, Shakey Graves, Gary Clark Jr., Colin Hay, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and many more. The New York Times called her music “utterly gorgeous, visceral” and SPIN Magazine described her as “stunning, breathy, and starkly memorable.” The Massachusetts-based artist found music in the midst of three years at a meditation center, honing a sound moored in days of silent reflection and reverence for storytellers like singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell, poet Rilke, and filmmaker Ken Burns.
Her performance at the Academy will focus on songs from her latest album, Soil In The Sky. A collage of tremulous folk, existential ballads, and assertive rock, she describes the record as “a collective memory… stitched together from personal and universal ecstasy, loss both intimate and ancient.”
“Heather Maloney is a unique talent who combines brilliant storytelling with a stunning voice,” says Wayne Greene, member of the Academy’s Music Committee. “We look forward to hosting her in an intimate, solo setting. It’s sure to be special.”
