Folk/Pop artist, Mahoney Harris writes intimate, wistful but hopeful tunes. Her voice has been described as 'honest, charming and beguiling'.
Mahoney is attracted to emotional and spiritual crossroads; points of transition that make way for new revelations and possibilities. Nature is an ever-present influence and often the backdrop in her songs.
Mahoney began playing guitar in the summer of 1996 while enduring a hot NYC summer. As soon as she could master a few chords she began writing songs and playing out at local open mike evenings around the city.
In 2009, with the help of Tom Healy (Paquin, Hannah Curwood) Mahoney recorded her debute.p, But They Do, receiving warm praise from music media.
Reaching her PledgeMe crowd-funding goal in February last year, Mahoney has recorded her new album We Didn’t Feel Alone with Tom Healy, Wayne Bell and a handful of other talented NZ musicians. We Didn’t Feel Alone is due for release in August 2014.
