[New York, NY - October 2, 2013] This past summer, singer-songwriter-musician Mali Music piqued the interest of many with "Ready Aim," his poignant and powerful major label debut single and video. Now, ByStorm Entertainment and RCA Records are providing the world with a preview of what's to come from their prolific new artist with Mali Is..., a five-song sampler currently available for listening at http://www.malimusicofficial.com.
"Mali Music is captivating. I'm moved by his truth as a man, sharing his experiences of life through song. There are artists that feed your soul; Mali Music feeds your heart and spirit. I'm blessed and honored to work with artists that make a difference and create quality music," says Mark Pitts, CEO of ByStorm Entertainment, the same label imprint that signed the now critically-acclaimed Grammy award winner Miguel.
The songs featured on Mali Is... exemplify our inner voice at its most vulnerable as Mali Music navigates the complexities of life. "Heavy Love" longs for a deeper lifetime connection. "Beautiful" celebrates love and the appreciation for people in our lives who mean the most. "No Fun Alone" reminds us that the trappings of success don't guarantee happiness. "Fight for You" tells us to look within for confidence and strength during the most challenging times. Once that confidence and strength is found, it's "Ready Aim."
Throughout the years, Mali Music has emerged as an underground favorite for his arresting mash-up of contemporary R&B and inspirational story-telling. He made national television waves at the 2011 BET Awards with a rousing performance on the Music Matters stage and returned this year as a featured performer on the network's first ever BET Experience Music Matter Stage during the BET Awards weekend. Additionally, Mali Music was tapped to perform at this year's Essence Music Festival in New Orleans.
