At 12 years old, while her friends were doing what most 12-year old’s do, Mahalia was picking up a guitar and penning love songs in her room. It quickly became clear that she had a natural sense of musicality and it only took a year before she was signed to a label. Mahalia, showcasing a rare patience, decided to finish school before channeling all her creative energy into music. Now, school has been completed for a few years and Mahalia has gradually started to uncover her huge talent to the world. Her eclectic musical vision is deeply rooted in history – Sade, Erykah Badu and Lauryn Hill are some of her heroes – but Mahalia sprinkles this rich heritage with her originality, her amazing voice and her open-hearted, story driven lyricism. After Sober, her first official single, which was streamed 20 million times, Mahalia released the high-anticipated EP Seasons in 2018. Tipped on both the BRITs Critics Choice and BBC Sound Of 2019 polls, Mahalia has the world at her feet. Do not miss when UKs rising star Mahalia pays Way Out West a visit this summer!
