British soul-singing soon-to-be queen, Mahalia is a force the likes of which music is rarely blessed with. Though she has been on the scene for a couple years, last year’s release of the blowup single, Sober has placed her in a position ready to take a crown left undonned since Amy Winehouse.

 

A voice powerful enough to grab the attention of the entire music scene, a relatability reminiscent of harmless childhood crushes, and an approach so unique and versatile that any fan of music is instantly made a fan of Mahalia, are just part of what makes her so special. Add her impressive instrumentalism and pure songwriting capability to the list and you’ve still only just scratched the surface.

 

She recently released a new single, the uplifting and heartwarming Proud of Me featuring a fellow young, talented Brit - 23-year-old rapper and songwriter Lil Simz, and the song is another step in the right direction for both artists. 

Please don't be blind enough to sleep on this talent

INTERVIEW WITH REAUX MARQUEZ

The Nashville Hip-Hop artist is a bridge between the past and the present where rap's most sacred tenants, rhythm & poetry, coalesce with his vision for modern social progress and  damn good vibes. 

INTERVIEW WITH AARON TAYLOR

We spoke on the creative change of pace, on the process of piecing together what’s next, on performance, collaboration, and influence. His responses duly read of honesty, humbleness, and soul.  

INTERVIEW WITH BOBBY EARTH

Born in and permanently inspired by Houston, Bobby Earth finds heavier inspiration only at the crossroads of soul music and love.  

INTERVIEW WITH TESSELLATED

Splitting time between his home and Los Angeles, wide-ranging Jamaican artist of sunshiny vibes and warm-weather anthems, Tessellated is impossible to box in.
