GREAT WHITE NAMES MITCH MALLOY AS NEW LEAD SINGER
Grammy-Nominated Rock Band Hunts Down New Era, Captures Same Thrilling Sound
This record is so much more than simply Making Noise. It is a proclamation that rock is still alive and well…. You are left at the end of the album feeling so damn good and it is a high that only the best rock can give you. ~ Derek Kortepeter, Mixolydianblog
Mitch Malloy may have grown up in a small, quiet North Dakota town but his talent would take him around the world...Making Noise. From his first solo at the age of 6 he knew music was his calling. After high school Mitch moved east and soon became a noted name in the New York music scene. Not being one to sit around and wait for things to happen, Mitch invested all of his resources and time into creating his own home recording studio…way before it was trendy and somewhat affordable. His tireless efforts of songwriting, recording and performing his music led to a record deal with RCA/BMG Records. His success landed him a coveted performance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, hit songs, international exposure and an offer to replace Sammy Hagar in Van Halen.
But it was Mitch’s decision to relocate to Nashville, once again being ahead of the trend, that spurred his growth in songwriting and recording. When Mitch is not touring he spends countless hours in the studio working with clients, consulting with technology developers and geeking out with the latest gear. He established Malloy MasterTracks, a full service studio production facility that serves a variety of clients from hit acts and labels like Taylor Swift, Boys Like Girls, Kenny Loggins, Chad Kroeger, Lady Antebellum, Craig Morgan and Sony Music NY to singer/songwriters Victoria Shaw, Gary Burr, and Billy Falcon and even voice over work for Outdoor Channel, Field & Stream and various other brands.
Mitch's most recent full-length album, MAKING NOISE., was released in late 2016 to amazing reviews The album comprises some of Mitch's finest work in his traditional melodic rock style. The first single, My Therapy, is available now on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and more.
