He’s an artist- as a singer, songwriter, and producer; Malik has been ready to paint the music scene for years. Now, he has all the colors in his palette to turn his aspiration into a work of art. With his new single “Crazy” from his debut EP, Before Dawn, already becoming a fan favorite on Reverbnation and drawing comparisons to last summer’s smash hit “Closer” by Ne-Yo; Malik is only a brush stroke away from success.
“I am a musician for the people…” spoken from the confident young artist. “I write songs that connect to the simple yet universal things in life: happiness, love, lust, family, hardship, courage and triumph. I love music because I know there is a song for every moment”.
Born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Malik graduated at the top of his class from Martin Luther King High School and attended the University of Pennsylvania. Yet the rigorous academics and his visual studies major did not impede his love for music. Performing on campus, Malik cultivated a strong following and reputation as a debonair crooner. Before long, he parlayed his many talents into founding Keysong Music Group (KMG), an independent recording label that’s mission is to connect feel good music to all audiences. As the first act on the KMG roster, he has worked restlessly creating Before Dawn. Inspired by a conversation with his father, Before Dawn represents a resonance that no matter what someone is going through in life, good or bad; they have the comfort of knowing that when the sun rises, a new day begins. With songs like the melodic “So Much” and the frenzied “Daylight”, Malik is more than ready to share his art form to the masses.
Malik’s video for “Crazy” was directed and produced by 2Cents Production- an award winning independent production establishment popular for The DL Chronicles and producing and directing projects for: Tavis Smiley, Magic Johnson, Nick Cannon, Jody Watley, and Shanice Wilson.
As Malik begins to illustrate his future, he will no doubt become one of the rising stars of the pop/soul and indie music scene.
