Michael Maloney / Press

“Maloney challenged himself to play each of the 75 pianos that are part of the "Play Me I'm Yours" project. The piano-hopper said, "I didn't quite make it to every single piano, but it was still worthwhile. I got to meet so many people I otherwise wouldn't have, had I not made this challenge for myself. I was very lucky to meet people from different parts of the world and other people doing the same challenge." He played 51 of the pianos within a week. The pianos went down Oct. 14. The impact that this event had on the city was very apparent. For a few weeks the monotony of a daily commute was broken up by great music coming from total strangers. The outlet that these pianos created allowed even the shyest of creative types to show their talent to the city. Maloney sure showed Boston residents what drive and talent can help you accomplish, as he made an effort to give the people of this city some real entertainment.”

“Boston singer/songwriter, former member of Air Traffic Controller, Michael Maloney creates a blend of his favorite styles: Classic, Soft, and Pop Rock. Double majoring in Music & Health Science at UMass Boston, Michael has raised $1430 for Boston Children's Hospital, donating all the sales of his "Maybe This Christmas EP". To date, Maloney has released his debut album, "First Step", in 2011, "Maybe This Christmas EP" in fall of '11, and his "Boston EP" in the summer of '12, which contains three original songs inspired by The Hub. All are available on iTunes, Amazon, eMusic, Rhapsody, Napster, Spotify, Liquid Digital and Zune.”

“Come listen to Michael Maloney, a senior at UMass Boston, as he performs at the Hard Rock Rising Global Wide Battle of the Bands 2013 on March 7 at Hard Rock Café Boston, located at 24 Clinton Street. Out of the 250 entries from the Boston area, 12 performers will compete at Hard Rock Café Boston, in the hopes of becoming the local finalist and go on to compete globally. Maloney and the 11 other performers were selected through public voting and are set to play across a series of three nights. Each band submitted a recording which local fans listened to and voted for on the competition’s Facebook page. The 12 with the most votes were able to move forward to the next stage of the competition. "It’s exciting to have been selected, and I hope that the UMass Boston community will check out the event," Maloney said. The doors open at 8 p.m., and the event is 18 plus. There is a $5 cover charge, and the proceeds go to Music Drives Us, which supports music education programs.”

“Hi, I ran a fundraiser for Boston Children's Hospital this past December, donating all the sales of my "Maybe This Christmas EP". The Medford Transcript included a story/ad on it, and iTunes/Amazon recently sent me the final updated total: $800. I went to Childrens for a hip problem when I was young, and have been going back every few years for a check up. I recently visited my orthopedic doctor, Dr. James Kasser, and presented him the donation. I'm currently persuing a double major in Music & Health Science at Umass Boston, intending to continue on to grad school for Physical Therapy. I wanted to thank Medford for their wonderful support and generosity, and for making the fundraiser a success. http://www.facebook.com/michaelmmusic http://www.amazon.com/Maybe-This-Christmas-EP/dp/B0063BT2WW/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1333759755&sr=8-2 Michael Maloney”

“This December, two Medford High School graduates are releasing new recordings and although the duo have very different styles, both take much of their musical inspiration from the same place — the city where they grew up. “Running around Medford really helped me finish this project,” said 28-year-old Rich Dimare, referring to his first studio album, “Night and Day,” which went on sale Dec. 14. “A lot of times I couldn’t figure out what I wanted to do lyrically or melodically. Then I would go running around this city, and it comes to me.” For 21-year-old Michael Maloney, who just released a three-track Christmas EP called “Maybe This Christmas,” long walks around Medford recharge his batteries. Maloney won a WROR parody contest in 2007 for his Beatles parody, “The Long and Winding Road to Medford,” in which he makes humorous references to the city’s many Dunkin Donuts and one-story mall, among others...”

“Medford High School alumnus Michael Maloney (1998) has just released three originals Christmas songs entitled Maybe This Christmas EP. Maloney plans on donating all the proceeds from his songs to Boston Children’s Hospital, where as child, he went for his hip problem. The funds donated to the hospital will help pay for the medical costs of patients whose families cannot afford the care, purchase essential medical equipment, support pediatric research, and provide training for incoming pediatricians. Amazon.com, iTunes, Rhapsody, Napster, Rhapsody, Tradebit, Zune. Buy one song (99 cents), two songs ($1.98), or all three ($2.97) “Maybe This Christmas”, “Rockin’ Rudolph”, and “Snowfall.””

“Fellow UMass student Michael Maloney is showing great promise with his musical abilities. They are not only apparent listening to his album First Step which is available on iTunes and Amazon, but also through the many gigs he has done. Singing since the age of nine, this driven artist put a large amount of time towards improving his vocal sound and getting his music out there for the public to enjoy. His weekends are filled with gigs at local churches, nursing homes, and the occasional wedding. During the week he teaches the a capella group 8 Voices, on campus (which you can join by contacting him at Michael.Maloney002@umb.edu) and also teaches a music class at Snowden High School once a week to students who have little to no musical experience. Michael was nice enough to sit down with the Mass Media for a few minutes and answer some questions.”

“Medford resident Michael Maloney was a finalist and runner up in the “Irish Idol” singing competition earlier this month. Sullivan Tire & Auto Service sponsored the “Irish Idol” singing competition in conjunction with radio station Irish 950AM. Throughout the course of the last two months, listeners of WROL radio station were invited to call in to sing their way into the competition. Maloney beat out more than 50 entrants to move on to the final 5, where he was asked to visit the WROL studio and record a song which was uploaded to the Sullivan Tire and WROL web sites. More than 11,000 votes were cast in an online vote.”

“Maloney’s sentimental tune, “The Long and Winding Road to Medford,” won him a $5,000 royalty check on Oct. 25 and WROR’s Tom Doyle will be singing his adaptation of the famous Beatles song on his next “Townie Tunes” album, available at record stores throughout New England.”

“According to WROR, Medford High School senior Michael Maloney is the best in the state when it comes to putting poking fun at his hometown to music. The teen recently bested 80 other “townie tunes” in a radio contest with his parody of the Beatles song “The Long and Winding Road.”... earned”

““Love songs are the easiest to write,” Maloney said. “I like optimistic songs. Music is about helping people.” Maloney said sometimes a phrase he overhears on the train, or a headline in the newspaper will catch his eye or ear, inspiring him to write a song around it”
