Mahalia Barnes was born into the Australian music industry. Despite being the daughter of Australia’s most successful vocalist Jimmy Barnes, Mahalia has firm ideas about her own music – and much of it revolves around old school soul.
At age 15, Mahalia began her career touring and recording as a backing singer for her Dad. Since then she has worked for and alongside many artists, both Australian and international, including Roachford, Mica Paris, Sweet Pea Atkinson (Was Not Was), Disco Montego, Diesel, David Campbell, Blue King Brown, Kid Confucius, The Hands, Jackie Orszackzy, Tina Harrod, Tim Rogers (You am I), Guy Sebastian, Gary Pinto and many others.
Mahalia also began singing clubs and doing her own original shows with friends such as Jade MacRae with whom Mahalia wrote the track It's A Shame from the Soul Mates album, as well as Gonna Take Some Time – a top 40 single from Jimmy Barnes Double Happiness album. She also co-wrote Feel, a song which featured on Jade MacRaes Debut album.
It's in Mahalia’s blood to put on an amazing performance every time she steps on stage and Lizotte’s will be no exception.
