Rocker Mitch Malloy has released his new, full-length CD MAKING NOISE. This recording marks the first time Malloy has undertaken an album solely by himself from start to finish – songwriting, producing, instruments, mixing and mastering. “I have always brought in a few musicians or songwriters to work with me on projects in the past and have really enjoyed what they brought to the table. But this time, I was in a different place and really needed to work through everything musically by myself…thus, My Therapy!” said Malloy tongue-in-cheek about the first single, with video, aptly called My Therapy.
Mitch has been busy the past year not only writing and producing his own album but also writing and producing projects for clients in his studio, Malloy Master Tracks. Mitch states, “I love working with young artists and passing the torch to a new generation of rockers.” Malloy Master Tracks is a full-service production facility that serves a variety of clients from hit acts and labels like Taylor Swift, Boys Like Girls, Kenny Loggins, Johnny Gates, Craig Morgan and Sony Music NY to singer/songwriters Victoria Show, Gary Burr and Billy Falcon and even voice over work for Outdoor Channel, Field & Stream and various other brands.
Malloy’s tenure as an artist has spanned several decades beginning as a regular on the New York music scene in the 80s. Mitch soon garnered a major recording deal with RCA/BMG Worldwide and achieved chart success and landed a coveted spot on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. In the mid-90s Mitch was asked to replace Sammy Hagar as lead singer for Van Halen but after spending time and recording with the band he declined. “When the band appeared on the MTV Music Awards with Dave [David Lee Roth], the fans expected his return -- I expected his return. I felt as cool as the opportunity was, it just wasn’t the right time,” said Malloy.
For the launch of his 2016 release, Mitch Malloy embarked on the international MAKING NOISE tour which began in the summer and included stops at the world famous Whisky A Go Go in Los Angeles, Nashville, London, Liverpool, Athens, Madrid, Malmo and Oslo, to name a few. The tour will continue in 2017 and includes a special stop at the M3 Festival. Also look for Mitch on the 2018 Monsters of Rock Cruise!
