Malika Coleman

You may recognize her as the woman who brought down the house in her latest show at Sammy’s Patio, or you may even be a fan already. That’s because Malaika Coleman is starting to turn heads in the Boston music scene as one of the city’s up-in-coming artists.

Coleman describes her style as R&B with a pop edge. She’s inspired equal parts by artists such as Brandy, Jojo and Janet Jackson, and pop artists like Beyoncé, Britney spears, Rihanna, and Jennifer Hudson. Whatever category you put her in, Coleman is the full package: soulful singer, talented dancer, and accomplished songwriter.

The fact that Coleman composes all her own music sets her apart. She says she bases all of her lyrics off of personal experiences or stories she has heard from friends and family. Sometimes she’ll start with a lyrical idea and other times with a catchy beat or a hook. Coleman says she has been writing songs “as long as I can remember,” and the experience shows. Originals on her SoundCloud are generating hundreds and in some case thousands of plays. Clearly, people are taking notice.

Coleman hopes to become a big name in the music world, and she’s working hard to make her dream come true. By day, Coleman studies communications at Bunker Hill Community College and works helping teens at a non-profit. In every spare moment, she is hard at work scheduling shows, writing new material, and studying at Bristol, where she has been a student for almost a year.

At a recent show, an excited fan came up to Coleman and expressed how one of Coleman’s songs helped her thorough a difficult time. The fan knew every word by heart and excitedly tweeted Coleman on Facebook and Twitter. To Coleman, having this kind of impact is what being a recording artist is all about. If she keeps going at this pace, there is no doubt that Coleman will continue to influence more and more fans in this way.
