Clare Maloney & The Great Adventure are bringing the era of windows-down, roadtrip rock & roll straight into the playlist generation. Their 2022 debut LP “Daybreaker” was hailed as “stunning” by Relix magazine, praising its “brilliant vocals, rocking band and polished songwriting.” The concept of “Daybreaker” represents someone who brings light into the darkness and can turn night into day, reflecting bandleader Clare Maloney’s decade-long battle with writer’s block. In 2021, the multi-instrumentalist and former opera singer broke through to write over 100 songs, nine of which shine on the album, flawlessly blending rock, alt-country, Americana, folk, funk, the Great American Songbook & more.
Clare’s powerful and emotive vocal stylings are rooted in her early career as a classical singer, performing at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, and throughout Europe and Asia. Despite success in the opera world, Clare felt the magnetism of rock & roll and daringly transitioned from the world she knew to become a first-call session and touring vocalist, sharing the stage with members of The Grateful Dead, Jefferson Starship, Allman Brothers Band, Hall & Oates and the E Street Band along the way. Her unmistakable voice as a writer is shaped by the sounds of her native New York – from Tin Pin Alley to CBGC’s to Broadway and Brooklyn.
The band features Nate DeBrine, who co-produced “Daybreaker,” on guitar and vocals; Russ Gottlieb on bass and electric banjo; and Caleb Estey on drums and vocals.
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.
In 2021, Cano started a project called “Craft Culture” Tour, aimed at bringing people back together and helping local breweries/businesses recover from the pandemic. Alex spent much of the year performing at breweries and other unique venues across the Northeast. The tour was a way to highlight the connection between music and craft beer, and to celebrate local scenes and communities.
