On 02 Dec 2017 Malin will be playing with the Gin Blossoms in Cary Hall Lexington, MA. Show starts at 8:00pm. Tickets are available here, starting at $39.
Malin started the month with a great evening in Main Sts @ Concord - thanks everyone for coming out and making it a special event! That's our first show with pedal steel (courtesy of Mickey Roache). Also, thanks to Dwyane Haggins for a great special guest set.
Playing in Waxy's Friday Oct 6th again - this time with some new, 'forward-looking' merch ;) ...Come on over and get your Malin 2018 Tour t-shirts NOW!
New Video: I spent a day shooting a new video for Caught In Your Halo - it's looking great so far and I'm very excited to share it with you soon - due out in December! Can't wait.
(We have also been busy booking more shows into 2018... watch this space!)
I had the good fortune to see two great shows this month: Dan Wilson and Dada.
Dan Wilson of Semisonic on his Re-Covered tour. Fantastic and inspiring show and really cool to hear the stories behind the songs. Hearing the songwriting story behind the Dixie Chicks song Not Ready To Make Nice, was a highlight of the show.
I also got to see a longtime favorite band playing right here in Somerville, MA - Dada. These guys bring it live every time and the 25th Anniversary Tour for Puzzle was no exception!
Summer's almost over and it's been a fun one with all the special shows - New Hampshire was once again warm and welcoming. Thanks to everyone that had us play at your lakeside events! See you next summer.
Startring to get the songwriting itch again - home-project / studio-project, let's see where this one goes.
January 2017 - Happy New Year!
April/May 2016 - I've been enjoying time back in the recording studio with some Boston friends on a fun side project - more to come here too! We've also enjoyed seeing our friend, Cory Wong, on TV, playing with Ben Rector on Conan in April.
February 2016 - I'm honoured to be featured all across NI in the Ulster Star. Looking forward to playing UK & Ireland soon!
January 2016 - Happy New Year! It was a great trip to the UK in December - a bit of a whirlwind, but we got everything done. Thanks to everyone who came out to The Dublin Castle, Camden show on a rainy London night - so much fun to play for you there. We've just started publishing the videos of the trip and will be announcing the EP release date soon...
December 2015 - Packing up my acoustic guitar, ticket from Boston in hand, see you in London! On 10 December I will play The Dublin Castle, renowned as both the birthplace of Britpop and the ancestral seat of Madness. The venue also played an integral part in the early careers of acts such as Muse, The Libertines, Coldplay, Arctic Monkeys and The Killers.
November 2015 - I will now be in the UK 5-12 December for press and with some shows in London and Birmingham confirmed. I'm also very pleased to announce that I will one again be joined by the talented Ryan Liestman on guitar and vocals for this mini-tour.
October 2015 - I'm pleased to announce a very unique partnership with SAS Entertainment. Together we will bring Malin's music and live show to the UK in 2016! More to come here - we're working hard in the background to make it all happen and look forward to seeing you over the pond soon!.
September 2015 - I'm happy to announce a show with Livingston Taylor in Cary Hall Lexington on October 16th. After a huge, multi-million dollar renovation, it's an honor to be asked to play the first few tunes in there on opening night! I will be playing songs from High Tide Adventures solo acoustic, so it's a unique chance to hear these songs rendered as close to the original demos as you can get... alongside 799 other folks!! I'm also working to finalize a December trip to London and northern England to come and say hello to faces old and new, stay tuned here.
August 2015 - First of all, I want to send out a big huge thanks to everyone who made it out to our shows in Ireland. It was a fantastic time and I had the pleasure of sharing some big stages with an amazing bevy of talent: John Richardson, Cory Wong, Ryan Liestman and Adam Beard.
July 2015 - I had the pleasure of meeting and performing with Aileen Henderson from Light Over There in Galway, Ireland. We managed to make it to the legendary open mike at Roisin dubh. We will be playing some more shows around Ireland when I return in August.
June 2015 - Ireland Tour Dates now confirmed over on Shows page.
May 2015 - Things are shaping up - We have our first few dates in Ireland confirmed...
April 2015 - I'm heading overseas this summer for an Ireland tour in August! Dates TBA. Also, plans are in place for the new record to drop in June! Stay tuned.....
March 2015 - We now have keys and backing vocals done! Next step: Mixing in Nashville.
November 2014 - More tracking, finished the basics, made a video,... with a Mariachi band. Phew! Big month for the new record and I'm very pleased with the progress. Still a lot to do.
October 2014 - Well, the magic finally happened. Four guys in a room, a bag of freshly written songs and two engineers press the red button... I've just returned from the initial tracking sessions for my new record and safe to say, we're off to a great start! Update 10/31: We had so much fun that we're doing it all over again in November to finish the basic tracking and record a few videos! Watch this space.
September 2014 - Booking, booking, booking... we're adding more shows, working hard on preproduction and already starting to look into 2015! Fall is barely here in New England and already I hear rumours of snow from our Canadian neighbors to the North! I managed to catch Britt Connors CD Release show in Club Passim and was inspired - a great performance, a tight band (Mike Connors, Greg Loughman & John Funkhouser & Andrew Stern) and it made me want to experiment with those funny double-capos!
August 2014 - I aired out some of my new songs in Framingham at the Amazing Things Arts Center. Great venue - an old Firehouse. This was an all-originals set featuring the very talented Ronnie Hirschberg Band (Mike Connors, Alison Keslow & Chuck Clough). Also had a great show with The Butler Frogs at Vine Brook Tavern in Lexington this month. Looking forward to starting a regular feature here. Watch this space...
July 2014 - Some great shows this summer! I'm just back from a fantastic "Fishstock" festival in NH where we shared the bill with Every Other Sunday. Some more of the new demos were demo'd by the campfire.
May 2014 - The new record is progressing well with everything coming together. Starting to track final guitars and backing vocals this summer!
January 2014 - Lining up some new shows for this year to preview the new material.
October 2013 - Ventured into Woolly Mammoth Sound Studio to continue working on the next record with producer extraordinaire Sir David Minehan manning the desk! We're going to take the time do to it right but watch this space for some early demos.
Can't wait? Come and check out the new material with acoustic previews most Tuesday evenings at Main Sts Market Cafe in downtown Concord, MA.
