Pat Maloney is a singer / songwriter from Ottawa, Ontario. His music has been described as witty and annoyed. Pat’s music is a refreshing take on folk / roots / singer-songwriter stuff. He prefers to touch on social justice rather than cliche love songs. He likes to ruffle feathers rather than stroke them. Pat’s main instrument is the drums, which he has been told gives him a unique approach to his writing. The rhythms are more interesting than most acoustic music. Root Rot is the name of his debut solo record, released in March 2013. The collection of songs were written while Pat played drums in a few different bands, based in London Ontario, where Pat lives. He will be moving to Toronto in August, after resigning from his job, ready to pursue his passion full time.
