We Didn't Feel Alone

Waiheke Island based singer-songwriter Mahoney Harris releases her debut album We Didn’t Feel Alone on September 19th.

 We Didn’t Feel Alone is a set of beautifully crafted folk-pop tunes tackling the age-old questions of life, loss and love.  This unique collection is tastefully enhanced by some of the country’s leading musicians, including Andrew Keoghan, Ben King, Matthias Jordan, Wayne Bell and Tom Healy.

 It all started with a successful PledgeMe campaign to raise funds for recording.

 “I had recorded a bunch of demos with Wayne Bell and was ready to record but financial constraints held me back for a long time, until finally I headed to PledgeMe. I was humbled by the response.” Mahoney says.

 She enlisted friend and previous collaborator, Tom Healy (Paquin, Tiny Ruins, Pop Strangers) to produce the album. Tom’s elegant electric guitar can be heard on most tracks, while Wayne Bell’s talents abound on drums and various other instruments.

 Recording sessions took place sporadically over a period of 15 months, snatching weekends here and there whilst juggling musician availability, motherhood and work..

 The result is a set of simple yet lovingly crafted songs that hark back to another era while somehow remaining firmly planted in the here and now. Her tenderly understated style imbues the album with a lightness of touch, and with production by Healy and mastering by Oliver Harmer, the songs are freshly realised and sonically delicious. 

We Didn’t Feel Alone is available via Amplifer, iTunes and all good digital outlets.


New single for Mahoney Harris

Mahoney is delighted to announce the release of her new single ‘We Didn’t Feel Alone’, out August 15th.

‘We Didn’t Feel Alone’ is a hypnotic eastern influenced track depicting the afterglow of a music performance. Sparse electric guitars envelop a mystical drumbeat while Harris’s ethereal harmonies hover above. 

The single was recorded and produced by Tom Healy (Paquin, Tiny Ruins, Popstrangers), mastered by Olly Harmer and is a precursor to Mahoney’s debut album, due out September 19th.

Healy contributes a delicate lead guitar to the single while percussionist Wayne Bell invokes an ancient heartbeat.

‘We Didn’t Feel Alone’ is now available on iTunes, Amplifier and Bandcamp.
