TINA MALIA

Bio

Vocalist, multi-instrumentalist, composer and producer, Tina Malia is emerging as one of the most phenomenal artists of our time. Her music mirrors her unique and unconventional approach to life - a love for adventure and tireless commitment to the expression of beauty.

Classically trained in piano and voice by her mother, Tina spent her early days drenched in musical discipline. Reflecting on this period in her life, she recalls, "In my early childhood, I was studying classical musical rigorously. But, by the time I figured out I didn't need to train four hours a day that discipline was already instilled in me. And, by the time I was 11, I had decided that music would be my life."

After finally discovering the sonic world outside of her classical lineage, she began her apprenticeship while listening to some of the iconic female pop stars of our time. After picking up the guitar and studying sound engineering, she began her career as a recording artist by producing her three albums: Shores of Avalon, Jaya Bhagavan, and The Silent Awakening.

Based in the fertile San Francisco Bay area music scene, Tina Malia has performed worldwide sharing her diverse range of musical styles with countless audiences. She has collaborated with some of the greatest artists in a variety of genres, including pop, kirtan, world and electronic music, and with luminaries such as Kenny Loggins, Bonnie Raitt, Carlos Santana, India.Arie, Idan Raichel, Jai Uttal, GuruGanesha and Bassnectar.

"The relationship that I have with music is otherworldly," Malia shares. "My experience with music trumps any experience that I have on the physical plane. I don't know what else I would do if I wasn't doing music."

When asked how she sees herself making a difference to humanity and in contributing to the healing of the planet, Tina reveals that she hopes to become more socially active in the future. Knowing that she can make any kind of music that she wants, Malia observes that her fans insist that her music transforms their lives. "So - for now, as a musician," Tina declares, "I want to make music that gives people a little bit of comfort. It's a harsh world out there and if my contribution is to help people forget about that and remember something else for a moment, then that's what I'm going to do."

Malia is currently working on a new album scheduled for release in the summer of 2011.
