Malia Interview

Muzique Magazine Interviews Malia

Muzique Magazine. Where are you from? 
Malia. I was born in New Jersey, but I was raised in Queens, New York. A couple of years ago we moved back to New Jersey.

Muzique Magazine. How did you come by your stage/band name?
Malia. Though I was born as Muskaan Shah, my parents always called me Malia. When I had finally asked why they never called me by the name on my birth certificate, they told me that in Swahili, the name “Malia” meant “Queen” — something they always thought of me of. They told me that they had come across the name after they decided on the name “Muskaan,” which means “smile” in Hindi. And thus, I kept my stage name as “Malia Shah.”

Through Injuries and Introspection Comes An “Angel”

In the “Land Down Under” exists a crossroads where adult contemporary, pop, rock - and a touch musical soul - all collide in one cutting-edge swirl of sound. It is at the very center of this vortex that you’ll find Australian poet, composer, and singer, Andy Michaels. While he has been successful in many other parts of the world, he is just starting to break out in U.S. Within Andy Michaels: Revisited, his latest release, he is giving brand new fans a chance to catch up with his addictive and inimitable collision of sound and style.

In Australia, Andy has drawn crowds in the tens of thousands. He’s performed on TV, while backed by a twenty-piece orchestra, in front of over a million viewers. Michaels never planned a career in music. It was after a car accident that resulted in severe injuries and a subsequent long recovery that he learned guitar and put his poetry and musings into melody and song.
