BeBobAlooza winner to offer fans a taste of new music
Over the past couple of years we’ve had the privilege of working with some amazing clients, but
we’ve never been prouder now that one of our favorites is ready to embark on the second half of what has thus far been – a short – but very promising career. Our own Malia Grace (née Malia LiVolsi) is currently working on her début EP with famed Austin-based producers Matt Noveskey (Orb Studios/ Blue October) and Johnny Vogelsang. She is planning to release seven songs in the spring of 2015 following a Kickstarter in January, which will help raise funds to complete the EP. To celebrate and kick off the upcoming effort she recently announced that she would be performing a preview show at Austin’s One-2-One Bar Dec. 29! Please find her full statement below:
I want to welcome my friends, family and fans to the next stage in my music career. As many of you know, I am currently working on my debut EP. I’ve enjoyed entertaining at local venues, parties, churches and even college and professional sporting events, and now I’ve discovered how special it is to put your own music on record to share with the world.
Over the past couple of months, I have been blessed to work with two amazingly talented producers, namely Matt Noveskey (Orb Studios/ Blue October) and Johnny Vogelsang. Under their guidance and with the synergistic input and participation from an all-star roster of local musicians whom I have been fortunate enough to cross paths with, I am putting together seven very special songs to share with you all in the spring of 2015.
Already, the songs for the EP have drawn some praise. A couple of months ago, my songs won the 2014 edition of BeBobAlooza, a prestigious songwriting contest judged by its Emmy award winning namesake Bob Cheevers, Sara Hickman, the president of the Texas Songwriters Association, and many other talented musicians/songwriters. I am beyond honored to have received this award, and cannot wait to share my music with you all!
In the coming months, we hope to complete and polish the effort for the EP. We will be holding a fundraiser via Kickstarter in January to help us complete the project and deliver the best product we possibly can. Until then, this month is all about celebrating the end of what has been an extremely special year for my team and me and about inviting all of you who have shown your support for me in so many ways over the years along for the ride.
Of course, no celebration would be complete without a party – so I’m throwing one! December 29th, I will be playing songs from my upcoming EP as well as some old favorites at Austin’s One-2-One Bar from 11 p.m. until midnight with a full band backing me up.
Please join us for a drink or two and some music that I guarantee will cure any case of the Mondays! Thank you all for your continuous support. I love every one of you and am so glad to share this life-changing experience with you.
