Steve Maloney and the Wandering Kind | Cultural Festivals | Halifax, Nova Scotia | THE COAST

If you've ever been to St. John's, Newfoundland, you'll know that the rocky coastal town can be as unforgiving as it is welcoming. This dichotomy informs the folk songs of Steve Maloney and The Wandering Kind: "There's a mystical quality to some parts of town," says Maloney. "The weather isn't perfect, but I find that it's endless in offering inspiration."

After releasing a debut record in 2014, the band spent the summer roaming on an east coast tour, with both solo and group stops in Halifax. He says they're all excited to see Braids at Halifax Pop Explosion, and Maloney is especially looking forward to The Weather Station, Nap Eyes and Andy Shauf. To describe Steve Maloney and The Wandering Kind in three words, he says, "Townies love reverb."
