The 20-year-old singer and composer, photographer and poet Malva loves the music of Warhaus as much as that of Nina Simone. But she counts Patti Smith among her idols first and foremost. Not so much because of the music, but more as an artist, woman and person. Followed by Mascha Kaléko, Simone de Beauvoir and dodie, because of whom she started with music at the age of 12. Then, in November 2022, she got off to a brilliant start with her debut "Das Grell in meinem Kopf" - as they say and write.
What followed were effusive reviews, from "amazing" (Jörg Feyer, Rolling Stone) to "strong" (Andreas Müller, "Soundcheck" on RBB) to "impressive" (SZ) and "heart-warmingly beautiful" (Deutschlandfunk), as well as numerous radio features and a few selected TV appearances (including "druckfrisch").
And of course one should not completely ignore the considerable number of concerts, because, although after two Corona years the rush on the live stages was immense in 2023, Malva could consider herself lucky to receive numerous requests and offers. She played her first gigs abroad in Austria as the opening act for her friend Oskar Haag, toured the Bavarian provinces with her great idol Jesper Munk and quickly sold out her own vinyl release show in advance at one of her favourite Munich clubs, the Milla. Several festival appearances followed in the summer, with the absolute highlight being the "Heimatsound" at the Oberammergau Passion Theatre, where her set was recorded by BR. For some time now, Malva has been working on new songs for her next album, which is expected to be released in spring 2024.
