New York’s Clare Maloney is one of the most distinctive, powerful and emotive voices in rock & roll today. The internationally renowned singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist has shared the stage with members of The Grateful Dead, Jefferson Starship, Allman Brothers Band, Hall & Oates, Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band and more. 

Before transitioning to rock and roll full-time, Clare trained extensively and toured as an opera singer, appearing multiple times at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Town Hall, Symphony Space, 92ndY, National Sawdust and at concert halls throughout Europe and Asia.  

Since 2018, she has been the vocalist for The Englishtown Project, and more recently has toured nationally as a vocalist and guitarist with The Airplane Family and Deadgrass. When the music industry shut down in 2020, Clare and her music partner, Nate DeBrine, started a weekly livestream from home that garnered over 100k views and an enthusiastic fan base around the world. Clare further used that time to break through a decade-long period of writer’s block, writing over 100 songs in 2021, and together with DeBrine she began forming the sound and the band that would become The Great Adventure. 

Clare Maloney & The Great Adventure played their first show in June 2021 to a sold out crowd at The Bitter End NYC. The band features a rotating cast of adventurers including DeBrine, Nathan Graham (Midnight North, Phil Lesh), Larry Cook (Tony Trischka, Joshua Hedley), Caleb Estey (Steve Forbert), Russ Gottlieb (Brummy Brothers, Deadgrass), C Lanzbom (Soulfarm, Deadgrass) and Damian Calcagne (Andy Falco, Railroad Earth). After the success of their debut show, monthly appearances at The Bitter End followed, as well as opening slots for Phil Lesh & Friends, Donna the Buffalo, Twiddle and Scars on 45.  

The band released a series of singles in the spring of 2022 to rave reviews. Relix magazine called their first single, “Legend Lives On,” a “stunning debut.” Their momentum continued through the summer of ’22 with a string of dates along the East Coast and Midwest in support of their new music, including a rocking set on the main stage at The Pleasantville Music Festival and an appearance at 107.1 The Peak’s Beach House series. Their debut full-length album, “Daybreaker,” was released on December 9, 2022, coinciding with a year-end run of shows along the East Coast and a sold out album release party at The Bitter End. The self-produced album features nine original songs and was recorded live at The PineBox in Boonton, NJ.

New York Based artist Alex Cano’s debut album ‘Every Rise of the Sun’ is a story of resilience and survivorship that hits straight to the heart, while making you want to drum along on your steering wheel. If you’re looking for a raw slice of organic, honest, Rock n’ Roll, this is it. From setbacks, to comebacks, to ultimate resolve, this record comes from a very real place, and is intended to revive and inspire.

Cano’s combination of smooth baritone and powerful rock vocals tell the truth and the whole truth, from cover to cover. Coming from a wide array of influences, his sound is described as a mix of Foo Fighters, Led Zeppelin, Pearl Jam, Jason Isbell, and Johnny Cash.
