We are very excited to announce that our 2017 Songwriter in Residence is Steve Maloney

Steve is a trained vocalist and songwriter from the edge of Eastern Canada. Known for his “velvet voice”, Steve offers powerful and textured tones that cannot be contained by one genre. His ability to ebb and flow between folk, classical and pop music is seamless. Opening for treasured and well respected acts such as Basia Bulat, Joel Plaskett, Bahamas, Hey Rosetta!, By Divine Right, Amelia Curran, Wintersleep and The Wooden Sky,  Steve is carving a strong name for himself in Canada’s music scene.

Steve will spend the month of January in the historic Macaulay Residence house, where he will ready the final stages of PR for a new record (May 2017), while finishing writing for a second record in partnership with McGill University (Winter 2018). In addition to his own work, Steve plans to connect and collaborate with the community through skill-sharing, songwriting workshops, events and performances.
