PAT MALONEY (Indie Folk Pop, Hamilton)
November 3, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
“[Pat Maloney’s] music is soulful, honest, hilarious and smart” – Fingers on Blast, 2015
Pat Maloney is a Canadian songwriter, a storyteller, and a serious whistler. He’s a concerned citizen, with a busted acoustic guitar and a fake bass drum. He’s a too-tall, Ottawa ex-pat, singing songs as meaningful as he can muster, with a healthy, self-defaming sense of humor.
Since Fall of 2013 Pat has performed more than 600 times in 4 different countries. Lengthy tours of the United Kingdom during University “Freshers” and “Refreshers” seasons have galvanized his efforts as a hard-working, self-made artist. Pat is an award-winning favorite in the Canadian campus market.
In three short years, he has released three full-length albums, and a dozen “art project” style stop-motion animated music videos. The single Repotting hit number one on several campus charts in Ontario and the Maritimes.
Audiences are dazzled by Pat Maloney’s natural candor on stage. The ad-lib banter comes across like a comedy show, while his brand of quirky folk music doesn’t hesitate to explore the lesser-spoken meaning of things. He sings with refreshing purpose, in a rich baritone.
Root Rot (2013) and Repotting (2014), two full-length recordings, describe a transition from village to town to city. From school and working world to creative and socio-economic freedom. Both records are sold out of the first run, planted with care all over Canada and The United Kingdom.
RIGHTHERE (2016) is Pat’s first acoustic, live-in-studio album. The record is his first to go without the comforts of extra instrumentation. It is a true singer-songwriter album featuring just his voice, a guitar, a bass drum, and lots of whistling. The recording offers nine songs about touring in England’s rugged midlands, his travels across Canada and his life in Ontario.
