Mahalia’s striking voice gets the full attention it deserves on Borrowers, a new track from the Birmingham native’s upcoming EP Never Change which will be released via her own label on 11 December.
Performing alongside a bare, solo piano accompaniment, Mahalia’s effortlessly soulful vocals have space to shine and all the time they need to draw the listener in to her reflective lyrics.
Mahalia is no best kept secret by any stretch, having already opened for Ed Sheeran, Emeli Sande, Kwabs and Lianne La Havas on their tours and, more recently, she featured as guest vocalist on the title track from Rudimental’s UK chart-topping album We The Generation.
As well as looking out for the Never Change EP, the follow up to her debut Headspace which she released at the age of 14, Mahalia has a packed schedule of live dates taking place in November and December. Check out the full line up below.
