Heather Maloney and Darlingside independently began their musical careers in late 2009 in Northampton, MA, crossing paths only through overlapping posters pinned up on cork boards across town and occasional side-by-side blurbs in local music rags. Buoyed by the same robust arts scene of the Pioneer Valley, both artists grew from regional headliners to nationally touring acts in a few short years. In November of 2013, Maloney and Darlingside teamed up for a tour out to the Midwest, and it did not take long for them to realize that they had stumbled upon a powerful combination. A feature in the New York Times of their cover of Joni Mitchell's “Woodstock” soon followed, and a joint EP, the Woodstock EP, was released by Signature Sounds on March 11th.

Heather Maloney is a western Massachusetts based artist who has received numerous accolades for her startlingly soulful voice and literate songwriting exploring themes of spirituality, transformation, and impermanence. Critics are quickly discovering Maloney's talent with No Depression raving "Her music is riveting, her voice adventurous, her lyrics thought- provoking...Maloney's expansive range can handle Ella Fitzgerald-style jazz scat and adapt to Beatlesque pop or Joni Mitchell folk...” while Blurt Magazine wrote "Heather Maloney is one of the most talented tradition-based singer-songwriters I’ve heard in some time...the writing is stunning."

Darlingside is a Massachusetts-based indie folk quartet. With four distinct voices clustered around a single microphone, their tightly arranged tunes draw from the unexpected, featuring strains of bluegrass, classical, and barbershop. Accompanied by an arsenal of classical strings, guitars, mandolin, and percussion, these four close friends swap instruments from song to song, keeping audiences across the country on the edge of their seats: "Darlingside are doing something new in pop music...ground the Beach Boys, Beatles, Joni Mitchell, Pink Floyd, David Bowie, Talking Heads, Prince, Phish and Radiohead didn’t cover” (The Boston Herald).
