We would call her the “new R&B sensation”, except that Mahalia has been on the scene for ages now.
Precocious, she wrote her first song at just 8 years old. By 12, guitar in hand, she started playing in public on open mic nights in her hometown of Leicester. Just one year later she signed to Atlantic. The tween soon became a 20-year-old young woman and something of an R&B and soul expert. She’s released one album, has another on the way this year, and several Eps (including 2018’s “Seasons”). Singer, songwriter, but also actress, Mahalia has worked with Little Simz and Rudimental and opened for British stars such as Jorja Smith and Ed Sheeran.
