Adam Maloney

Adam Maloney recently received a Master’s degree under the instruction of Northwestern University’s Andy Raciti, where he served as principal double bass of Northwestern University Symphony Orchestra. Originally from Raleigh, North Carolina, Adam has previously held principal positions at the University of North Carolina Symphony Orchestra, Aspen Philharmonic Orchestra, Brevard Music Festival and in the Akademisches Orchester Wien. During his studies in Chicago, he has been an associate member of the Civic Orchestra of Chicago, Lansing Symphony Orchestra and Illinois Symphony. 

While studying and performing in Vienna, Austria, Adam studied with Filip Waldmann of the Wiener Philharmoniker and Wolfgang Harrer of the Radio Symphonie Orchester Wien. A performer of a wide variety of early bass instruments, Adam Maloney serves as the baroque bass and viol da gamba player for Ensemble Affect. He has studied these instruments under Heather Miller Lardin of The Handel Haydn Society as well as Brent Wissick of Atlanta Baroque Orchestra, and performed as a part of both Amherst Early Music Festival and the Oregon Bach Festival. As a jazz bassist, he spent five years touring and recording with Ellis Dyson & the Shambles, whose music pulls inspiration from early jazz, piedmont folk, ragtime and other prohibition era dance music to create an original swing band sound. The group has released three full length albums, toured throughout the eastern United States, and is currently signed with KCA Artists in Nashville, TN.
