On August 8, Singer Mali is set to release her single, “My Nature,” a thought-provoking song that addresses the pressing issue of climate collapse and delves into questions around human nature and the drive to tamper, meddle, manipulate, master, and conquer the world around us.

In “My Nature,” Singer Mali anticipates the devastating impact of natural disasters, such as the Canadian wildfires and the subsequent record-breaking temperatures that have now become a harsh reality. Singer Mali shares, “With ‘My Nature,’ I aim to challenge the prevailing mindset that views progress as the constant interference and manipulation of the natural world. Through this song, I encourage listeners to pause and reflect on how our actions are shaping the world and whether they truly contribute to its betterment.” Singer Mali’s insightful reflection emphasizes the importance of recognizing that events in one corner of the world can have far-reaching effects thousands of miles away, bringing awareness to the fragile balance of our planet.

Singer Mali is a singer/songwriter, performer/composer based in Boston, MA. For over a decade, she has been the primary songwriter, lead vocalist, and frontwoman for the avant-chamber pop/art rock band Jaggery. Jaggery was selected for Boston’s Outside the Box Festival and a commission to create a Leonardo da Vinci-inspired song cycle by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. As a solo artist, Mali has toured internationally and composed works for dance (Luminarium Dance), experimental theater (Liars and Believers), and in collaboration with painter Steven Bogart (Ten Paintings, Ten Songs). In 2018, she was a featured speaker for Princeton composition Ph.D. students and served on a panel for a New England branch of NPR Music’s Tiny Desk Contest.

Singer Mali will release her debut album, Lodestone on September 22.
