At 12 years old – the age most of us are aimlessly riding bikes or trying to avoid homework – Mahalia was picking up a guitar and penning love songs.   She has a natural sense of musicality, and its clear that she’d be doing this for the rest of her life.  Now 19, Mahalia is ready to fully unleash what she’s been brewing into the world.   Her first official single,  “Sober”, is a rich slice of R&B that recalls the likes of Erykah Badu, Sade and Lauryn Hill, sprinkled with originality and pushed into the present day. The track is quintessentially Mahalia – encompassing the classic sounds of the past while refusing to be hemmed in by one genre; her open-hearted lyricism holding it all together. This unique sonic make up will undeniably see Mahalia produce a debut album that is her defining artistic statement
