The unconventional rise of Hawaiian-born Malia J has seen her tour the world as a classical oboist before discovering "her voice." Trained at Interlochen Arts Academy, Malia's debut cover of Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” was selected for the opening sequence in Marvel Studios’ Black Widow. The song exploded to #1 on Spotify Global Chart, #1 on iTunes Alternative Chart, #3 Amazon Music and #4 on Shazam Global Chart being the first cover of the song that the Nirvana estate has ever permitted to be used in a film.

Black Widow is not the first time Malia’s voice has been featured. In 2018 she won a Clio Award for the Season 2 trailer for the Emmy and Golden Globe-winning Hulu series The Handmaid’s Tale for her cover of Buffalo Springfield’s “For What It’s Worth.” Malia is currently putting the finishing touches on her debut album.
