Carolyn Malachi’s unique approach to music combines Jazz, Hip Hop, Spoken Word, and lots of imagination. Dubbed “sweet songstress” by BET, the independent, Grammy nominated artist and great-granddaughter of pianist John Malachi counts Yasiin Bey (formerly Mos Def), Radiohead, and Sarah Vaughan among her greatest influences.
She released Revenge of the Smart Chicks in 2008 and Revenge of the Smart Chicks II in 2009. Both albums reveal the inner workings of Smart Chicks which Carolyn Malachi defines as “decidedly authentic women.” Her 2010 release, the “Lions, Fires & Squares” EP, earned a 2011 Best Urban / Alternative Performance GRAMMY Award nomination for the single, “Orion.”
“Sunshine”, a childhood sobriquet, seeds the artist’s philosophy: “My aunt often says, ‘Sunshine, remember your power’", the power of the mind to give life to infinite possibilities.
Microsoft featured her motivational “Beautiful Dreamer” video on Windows Media Guide. Her “Free Your Mind” video supports The School Fund’s global education efforts. The artist joined forces with Fiat to encourage safe driving, and BET presented Carolyn Malachi at its 2012 Leading Women Defined Summit.
Says the Huffington Post of Carolyn Malachi’s ‘Onward and Upward’ approach to music, “She’s not waiting for some moment in the future.”
