We had the good fortune of connecting with Maliah and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Maliah, what led you to pursuing a creative path professionally?
ive been creating music since i was a child, with lyrics and poetry, it transformed me into the person i am today. music is magic to me and i will never stop sharing

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
growing up as an only child music was and is my best friend, it helps me share what i have to say. Being a singer has lots of challenges , i have had many people growing up telling me that i wasn’t good enough and that i would never make it. but i feel like im doing a gosh darn job with being myself and creating what i want to create.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
This is a good question, i love sushi like a-lot so i would take them to katsuya in los Angeles, and i really like walking around melrose its fun to look into shops! you dont always have to buy everything you see lol, and of course our la sunsets are beautiful.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
shout out to my parents! for showing me good music from an early age, and always helping me towards my goals.
