Clare Maloney & The Great Adventure; with special guest Michele Gedney

Clare Maloney & The Great Adventure are bringing the era of windows-down, road trip rock & roll straight into the playlist generation. Relix magazine named the band an “Artist You Need to Know” in 2023, calling their debut LP, “Daybreaker,” “stunning” and praising its “brilliant vocals, rocking band and polished songwriting.” The album title stands as a sly ode to bandleader Clare Maloney’s decade-long battle with writer’s block, and triumph over it; night gives way to day, just as the multi-instrumentalist and former opera singer broke through to write over 100 songs in 2021, flawlessly blending rock, alt-country, Americana, folk, funk, the Great American Songbook & more.

Clare’s powerful and emotive vocal style is 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 the rock & roll music she grew up on, and daringly transitioned from the classical stage 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. As a writer, Clare’s unique and unmistakable voice is shaped by the sounds of her native New York – from Tin Pin Alley to CBGB’s to Broadway and Brooklyn. https://claremaloney.com

Michele Gedney has been writing songs since she was 7 years old. She continued writing throughout her life, mostly in the privacy of her room.  In 1999, armed with a lifetime of songs, she ventured out to explore performing and, with a life-changing connection, met her musical partner and husband, Rick.  Under the name Open Book, the duo released several albums which received critical acclaim and national airplay.  They toured for 23 years up and down the east coast. The most recent album, Leaning In, was released in September of 2023, eight months after Rick passed away.  

In 2013, Michele (and Rick) joined Dar Williams as founding members and teachers at her “Writing a Song That Matters” retreats which just completed it’s 11th year. Michele’s songs released with Open Book have received awards including the winner of the 2017 Connecticut Folk Festival Songwriting Competition.

Michele’s song ‘Go’ has been released by Cry Cry Cry (Dar Williams, Lucy Kaplansky, Richard Shindell) on their 2020 album, Live at the Freight”.
