The eldest daughter of singer Jimmy Barnes, Mahalia has been obsessed with soul music since her teens. However, being the daughter of Australia’s most popular singer presents its own set of problems.

“That’s why I have taken my time,” says Mahalia, now in her early twenties. “I needed to make sure I had the sound that I wanted and that I could make an album that’s not just like Dad would make or like anyone else would make.” For the past decade she has been singing with the Jimmy Barnes band as a back-up and featured vocalist. Then, about eight years ago she started doing her own gigs in soul and jazz clubs around Sydney.

“In the last year I’ve done supports for Lionel Richie, James Morrison and the Roots – completely different styles but they’ve gone down really well,” she says “but I’ve really enjoyed doing a whole bunch of shows in smaller places like the Night Cat in Melbourne where I’ve invited down other singers and done a revue type show and they’ve all gone really well.
So hopefully there isn’t a venue that won’t ask us back when we take the
new album on the road.
