After support from Future Bubblers, Help Musicians UK, PRS & MOBO as well as being featured as one of Clash Magazines Artists Set To Rise, Mali sets to continue the journey in the rest of 2023 and beyond. Hayes’ music is perfumed with vibrant real-life stories and is coloured with honesty and soul, also described as a Jazzy-Nu-R&B type Neo Soul. After gaining experience singing backing vocals for Tito Jackson, JP Cooper, Mica Miller and more, it has further inspired Mali’s soulful sound.
After recording and self-releasing her Debut EP, Quiet Silence, in late 2016 with her producer and mother, Mali hit the scene running as she joined Gilles Peterson’s Brownwood talent discovery programme (Arts Council England funded) - Future Bubblers which saw Mali performing at The Jazz Cafe and also sought a slot at Gilles’ new festival - We Out Here! Mali went on to receive the Future Bubblers x MOBO Awards Help Musicians fund in late 2018 to further her career and development.
After various radio airplay (BBC 6 Music - Gilles Peterson, BBC Radio 2 - Jamie Cullum, BBC Radio 1xtra / Selector Radio - Jamz Supernova, Jazz FM - Jeff Young and more), numerous support slots (Lady Blackbird, Bilal, Jamila Woods, Alfa Mist, Poppy Ajudha, Blue Lab Beats, Sons Of Kemet, Yazmin Lacey and more) and a collaboration with Foreign Beggars and Maverick Sabre under her belt, Mali continues to establish herself as an artist of real vision, dedication and drive.
