Malia pushes buttons by way of powerhouse vocal deliver, sharp songwriting and a thoughtful overarching message. Equally ponderous, provocative, passionate, and compelling, she asserts herself and presents a new female pop paradigm.” A tireless journey from a childhood spent in Hawaii to graduating from the Popular Music program at the USC Thornton School of Music set her on the road to realizing this ambition. Post college, she linked up with a powerhouse songwriter Ross Golan and ubiquitious producer and songwriter J Kash. Singing to friends with Pens founded by Golan, she initially made waves on the independent single, “Champagne Clouds”. Ryan Seacrest personally debuted the track on his KIIS FM show and predicted, “You’re going to hear about Malia- a lot”. Taylor Swift championed it on her Apple Music and Spotify “Favorite Songs” playlists and it eventually generated 20MM+ streams. the follow-up, “Little Victories” leaped past the 3MM mark as she joined JoJo on the North American Leaks, Covers, and Mixtapes tour. Signed to Warner Records, Malia made her major label debut in 2020 with her critically-acclaimed single, “Broke Boy”, which garnered praise from Paper Magazine, Flaunt, REVOLT, and more. Her EPs the Flip and Hells in Hand are out now.
