Notice to Our Readers: We are halting publication of the Significato Journal. It's been a lovely experience, but we have found that with limited time, we need to focus our efforts in new directions (which include book publishing). We have started to move content to our personal websites ( and (Kim's website is not ready yet)). When that process is completed, we'll send out a final email to our SJ subscribers and invite you all to subscribe to our individual subscription lists. We'll post links to our other writers too, so that you can find their work. More to come... [Peter and Kim - May 26, 2020]

Heather Maloney at the Freakfest

Capsule Review - Venue: One Longfellow Square, Portland ME ~ October 28, 2011 ~

Oct 29, 2011
Kimmy Sophia Brown

Fooling us into thinking she was a substitute act namedAmélie, Heather Maloney came out in a black page boy wig and long red dress, accompanied by a little ceramic gnome that sat on a stool beside her. She seemed at home on the stage, comfortable in her own skin, precise and practiced on the guitar and possessed a voice that couldn't be pigeon-holed. I wondered how to classify her genre -- because even though she reflected similarities to other modern female singers of her generation, she had the pipes and creativity to exceed them. Her warmth and stage presence was endearing. She had so much confidence and power as well as what sounded to me like perfect pitch, that I wanted her to meet Moira Smiley from VOCO and try some world music. I think she would exceed at it. Her voice went to some astounding places and her songs were full of youth and heart and charm. I thought of Audrey Hepburn when I looked at her. Or Amélie, come to think of it.

Kimmy Sophia Brown has loved humor and music and freedom for as long as she can remember.She is especially passionate about the environment and caring for animals.

She writes the column "From the Back Porch" as well as reviews of music in her column "MusicViews". Her goal in her music reviews is to introduce music she loves to people who may not have heard that particular artist or CD. For information about how to submit a CD for review, click here.
