Previously captivating audiences at Laneway Festival and selling out headline shows in Sydney and Melbourne, Mahalia is geared up for an encore.

With a remarkable 12-year journey in the music scene, Mahalia’s artistic prowess has garnered global attention. Collaborating with giants like Stormzy, Burna Boy, Little Simz, JoJo, Kojey Radical, and more, Mahalia effortlessly intertwines soul, sleek ’70s, and contemporary R&B in a mesmerizing symphony.

From her breakout year in 2019 with the release of her debut album, “Love and Compromise,” to receiving accolades such as a Grammy nomination for Best R&B Performance, a Brit Award nomination for Female Solo Artist, and two MOBO Awards for Best R&B/Soul Act last year, Mahalia’s star continues to ascend.

Her latest studio album, “IRL,” featuring hits like ‘Terms and Conditions,’ showcases Mahalia’s raw and honest songwriting, a departure from her previous releases. The album, described as “bold, vulnerable, classic R&B” by NME and a “glittering gem” by The Guardian, is a testament to Mahalia’s evolution as a superstar.

Not just a musical force, Mahalia is also the founder of ‘Mahalia Presents,’ a platform for emerging R&B artists. She is an advocate for her community, having taken on the role of ambassador for the Dr. Martens Tough As You mentor program alongside Kojey Radical, working towards improving creative opportunities for under-represented emerging artists.

As Mahalia touches down for her most extensive Australian tour yet, fans can expect an unforgettable live experience, featuring her chart-topping hits and tracks from “IRL.” The “In Real Life Tour” promises to be a powerful and emotional journey, with Mahalia’s star set to shine even brighter in 2024.
