Pat Maloney released his first solo album Root Rot along with a string of crafty, DIY music videos in March 2013. Since then, he has played over 200 shows all over Canada and the UK. Pat has played his songs at comedy shows, been background music at wineries, and opened for Juno-nominees Craig Cardiff, Broken Social Scene founder Brendan Canning, PEI’s Tim Chaisson, and Hamilton’s best-kept folk secret Wax Mannequin.
His fans know him as a charismatic, chippy performer who writes passionate, firmly a-political songs that might make you laugh, or cry about the fact that you’re laughing. A former drummer for punk, ska, hardcore, soul, country and hip-hop bands, Pat Maloney feels liberated sharing his personality as a budding solo artist with an acoustic guitar, reverb drenched “whistle mic,” and a bass drum box.
In 2014, Pat will release his second effort Repotting along with more clever and resourceful music videos. A follow-up tour of UK universities is scheduled for February, and a Western Canada tour in July and August.
