Mahalia im Winter mit Debütalbum in Deutschland
When the British singer and songwriter Mahalia released her breakthrough single "Sober" in 2017, the then
19-year-old can already look back on an astonishing output. In 2012 the longing ballad "Headspace", built on a delicate guitar melody, was released. Followed by EPs and other singles and in 2016 she released "Diary Of Me", which summarized many of her songs.
Writing songs has always been easy for Mahalia. She wrote her first songs when she was eight years old and signed her major deal when she was 13.
But the career itself, the sudden attention put her under pressure. So Mahalia finally moved back from London to her hometown Leicester, recorded "Sober", sang the song at a now almost legendary COLORS session that went viral and chose her own tempo from then on. Since then she has played countless concerts, inspired more and more with every single, put out the empowerment duet "Proud Of Me" with Little Simz - and finally finished what she calls her debut album.
In September "Love And Compromise" will be released, which in terms of attitude and album title is a clear homage to the great Eartha Kitt and, according to Mahalia, was musically inspired by Billie Eilish's debut and Jill Scott's "Woman".
Still, the album is all about Mahalia, due to her big voice, which can do smooth soul (as in "Grateful") as well as defiant pop like in "I Wish I Missed My Ex". Her Live shows are good anyway, because Mahalia is not only talented, but also charismatic as fuck.
So: Go there!
