People with positive energy are always the ones you want to be around. That's probably why singer/songwriter Malea Boss is so much fun to hear. The first thing you notice about this exuberant Southern belle is her easy going style in the way she introduces you to her personal experiences. On stage as well this style translates into a real treat for the audience.

Born in South Carolina, Malea got a gentle but consistent push toward her musical career from her father who was a music minister. Malea has been involved in chamber choir, church choir, and various musicals throughout high school. So getting up and singing her heart out is not new territory for Malea. She says, “I feel at home on stage, so every stage I step foot on becomes my home during that performance.”  Malea has had the opportunity to perform in a variety of places, from her hometown church in Lexington, SC to boardwalks and homeless shelters in New York City.  “I sing all the time so wherever I am is my stage.  I’ve even been known to sing in the aisles at Wal-Mart and in the school bathroom!”

Coming to Nashville is always the destination for anyone wanting to make it in country, and Malea is no different there. Her rise, though, has been met with several different good influences helping her take the right directions. One of those influences was the chance to record a song written by Martina McBride and veteran songwriter Buzz Cason for her debut album, 'Malea: All That I Have'(available on iTunes). You hear a lot of different influences in Malea's voice, including Martina's. Each song she sings or writes tells a different but to her important tale. She says, “Country music is about stories. Some of those stories can be meaningful and still be fun. I never choose a song that I can’t relate to in some way, shape, or form. My music will always reflect who I am.”

Malea is now performing on bigger stages and has made the move to Nashville to work full-time on her music career and promote her debut album, 'Malea:  All That I Have'.  Malea knows with God on her side, anything is possible. “Everyone has dreams and goals. I am just going for mine to the extreme!”
