Mahalia on Friday 22nd November 2019

Based in Birmingham, England, Mahalia is Mahalia Burkmar, an alt-R&B/soul singer and songwriter who counts Erykah Badu and Lauryn Hill among her biggest influences. A native of Leicestershire, she started writing songs and playing the guitar as a preteen. Burkmar drew the interest of major record labels by the age of 13, and released her first collection, Head Space EP, in mid-2012. After taking some time to finish school and hone her sound, Mahalia re-emerged in 2015 on Rudimental's single 'We the Generation' and performed with the group on Later... with Jools Holland. Her second EP, Never Change, followed that December.

In 2016, Burkmar had an acting role in the U.K. crime film Brotherhood and released her debut album, Diary of Me, on Asylum Records UK, a division of Atlantic Records. She followed it in 2017 with appearances on festival stages in the U.K. and a series of collaborative singles, including 'Hold On' featuring Buddy, the Maths Time Joy-produced 'No Pressure,' and in early 2018, 'Proud of Me' featuring Little Simz. Following the singles 'No Reply,' 'Water,' and 'I Wish I Missed My Ex,' Mahalia issued the five-song Seasons EP in late 2018. 'Do Not Disturb,' 'Grateful,' and 'Simmer' followed in early to mid-2019, before the release of debut album Love and Compromise in July of that year. Featuring production from DJ Dahi and Sounwave, the LP matched Mahalia's buttery vocals with a shifting set of romance-led lyrics.
