Introspective Folk/Rock Singer-Songwriter Malea McGuinness To Open For Shawn Colvin
Elegant, restrained, triumphant, redemptive, forward leaning, and reminiscent of another time in popular music; Malea McGuinness deserves your ear. – Associated Content
New York, NY – World-class vocalist Malea McGuinness is thrilled to announce that she will be opening for fellow female singer-songwriter Shawn Colvin for a special, one-night-only engagement at The Canyon in Agoura Hills, CA on August 7th. Malea’s music mixes modern pop/rock with a twang of American-style folk along with smoky vocals and intimate lyrics.
Throughout the summer, Malea has been vigorously touring the US while promoting her recent sophomore release, ‘CLOSE AS AIR’ (Malea Music), and most notably, joined iconic singer Kenny Loggins for a series of five dates on his 2010 Summer Tour. In addition, she teamed up with Canadian folk-rockers The Crash Test Dummies for a special performance in Redondo Beach and participated in The Avon Foundation’s ‘Drink Pink Night’, a breast cancer charity concert.
Earlier this month, Malea took the stage of the Harley-Davidson Roadhouse for her fourth outing to Milwaukee’s annual Summerfest Music Festival, opening up for alternative rockers, The Counting Crows. She generously donated all her merchandise profits earned to two local organizations, The Milwaukee Art Museum and the Wisconsin Humane Society.
Malea forges ahead with her devoted activism for animal rights, working in direct partnership with humane societies and animal shelters across the nation to raise funds and awareness for rescue and rehabilitation efforts. Most recently, she collaborated with her local animal rescue, The Amanda Foundation, to put on the ‘Paws For Patterns’ Fundraiser, a hugely successful charity event attended by “The Dog Whisperer” himself, world-renowned dog behavior specialist Cesar Millan, and stars including Bill Maher and Pauley Perrette (NCIS), Kaley Cuoco (Big Bang Theory), Kristen Bauer (True Blood) and Jenna Ushkowitz (Glee). Presently, Malea serves as a guest blogger on PetLvr.com.
