A confident and charismatic woman struts up to a microphone and brings the house down with an earth-quaking voice, head-turning lyrics and sass and swagger to spare.
Self-positive, sex-positive and in pursuit of inclusivity, Malia Civetz pushes buttons by way of powerhouse vocal delivery, sharp songwriting and a thoughtful overarching message. Equally ponderous, provocative, passionate and compelling, she asserts herself and presents a new female pop paradigm.
A tireless journey from a childhood spent in Hawaii to graduating from the Popular Music program at the USC Thornton School of Music set her on the road to realizing this ambition. Post-college, she linked up with powerhouse songwriter Ross Golan and ubiquitous producer and songwriter J Kash. Signing to Friends With Pens founded by Golan and Kash, she initially made waves on the independent single Champagne Clouds. Ryan Seacrest personally debuted the track on his KIIS FM show and predicted, “You’re going to hear about Malia—a lot.” Taylor Swift championed it on her Apple Music and Spotify "Favorite Songs" playlists and it eventually generated 20MM+ streams. The follow-up, Little Victories, leaped past the 3MM mark as she joined JoJo on the North American Leaks, Covers, and Mixtapes tour. Signed to Warner Records, Malia made her major label debut in 2020 with her critically-acclaimed single Broke Boy, which garnered praised from Paper Magazine, Flaunt, REVOLT and many more. Malia’s debut EP, The Flip, is out now.
