All of us at Compass Records Group are shocked and saddened to learn of Mick Moloney’s untimely passing. Mick was the musical mind behind many of our favorite albums on Green Linnet and Compass Records including McNally’s Row of Flats, a brilliant dive into the music of the pre-Tin Pan Alley Irish songwriting team Harrigan and Braham which earned Mick an interview feature with Terry Gross on Fresh Air. Listen here.
In the studio and on the stage Mick lifted up everyone around him with his generous musical spirit and sheer love of making music. Our lives are better for having known him and we cherish the music he left behind. RIP Mick.
