Leicester born singer-songwriter Mahalia pens love-soaked pop songs that display a maturity beyond her years, but somehow retains a youthful tone that fits perfectly over her RnB-infused heavyweight beats.

This is subtle and delicate music emboldened by exultant choruses and a vocal that is both sparingly sweet and refreshingly raw. There is nothing forced about Mahalia’s music and it is testament to her innate talent that she has been championed by Ed Sheeran and Rudimental, while enlisting esteemed producers including Supa Dups (Rihanna, Bruno Mars), 1985 (Drake, Nicki Minaj) and Steve Fitzmaurice (Sam Smith).

Currently, at the best she’s ever been, her latest track ‘No Pressure’ follows praised silky single ‘Hold On’.
