#MusicMonday is all about exploring musicians new and seasoned. This week I wanted to highlight an artist that is really making her mark in the industry, Malia Civetz. Malia initially made waves on the independent single Champagne Clouds. Ryan Seacrest personally debuted the track on his KIIS FM On Air With Ryan show and Taylor Swift championed it on her Apple Music and Spotify Favorite Songs playlist. Malia also opened for JoJo on her Leaks, Covers & Mixtapes tour in 2018.
The songstress has been ready for the big stage ever since she was little. 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. Malia got her big break when she caught the eye of Ross Golan (Selena Gomez, Ariana Grande, P!nk) while performing in college and signed to Friends With Pens, Golan’s partnership with J Kash (Maroon 5, Charlie Puth).
Now that she released her debut EP titled The Flip, I decided to have her on IG for #MusicMonday. I learned more about her journey, meeting President Obama, and touring with Jojo.
