Malia is the kind of person you’d want to burn sage and collect crystals with in your apartment—she’s the embodiment of ‘good vibes only' in the most sincere way possible. Hailing from the suburbs of Seattle, Malia relocated to Los Angeles to pursue her singing career after realizing it was ultimately what she wanted to do in life. Everything from her plant-based diet to her career come-up seems organic, never forced.
With simple, soulful tunes and a smooth vocal delivery, Malia’s inner peace shines in her music. Her languid, stripped-down songs explores self-love, good energies, and simple pleasures.
Malia just finished opening up the Always Never Home tour for The Internet's frontwoman Syd, who she also recently collaborated with for the sultry single, “Dirty Laundry”. We caught up with Malia to find out what she was listening to for recharging, energizing, and chillin' out while on tour.
