Carolyn Malachi, a soulful singer backed by drums, piano and bass, combines jazz, hip hop, spoken word and lots of imagination. In 2013 the artist whom MTV calls “one of five R&B artists to obsess over” – released a full-length album. GOLD includes FM/XM radio hit “All Right” and “Fall Winter Spring Summer,” which NPR named to its 10 Songs Public Radio Can’t Stop Playing list. When asked whether she prefers rapping to singing or spoken word poetry, Malachi replies, “Ultimately, the music comes first, because music is freedom.”
In January 2013 Carolyn launched the #IAM Campaign in partnership with The School Fund (TSF), Carmelita Group, and Chegg. This innovative campaign fused tech, commerce, and music to address one cause – global access to education. Says Carolyn Malachi, “Each of our paths is unique. Music is the intersection where we pause for collective conversation.” Carolyn also earned a Grammy award nomination in 2011 for Best Urban/ Alternative Performance.
