For the last few years I have been following the progress of Norwich blues singer Malaya Blue as she grows from strength to strength. Her last album ‘Heartsick’ I thought was excellent but her latest offering ‘Still’ has raised the bar even higher.
The album is a song writing collaboration with Dennis Walker – it was a case of back to school for Malaya, learning to write all over again. The lady has proven herself to be a quick learner, the new album is a real treat for the ears.
But you will have to wait to hear it in full. Today Malaya released the single from the album ‘Down to the Bone’ – its sassy, bluesy and delivered to perfection. The team have spent a lot of time getting it just right and the wait has been well worth it – a beautifully hand crafted album which deserves airplay far and wide.
I had the very great pleasure of chatting with Malaya recently. What started as a short video interview ended up being quite a long chat indeed. We decided to split it in two, in part one we talked about collaborating with Dennis Walker and that sassy new single….
