Maureen Malcolm-Gourley, known by her stage name Malba, is an enigmatic Scottish singer-songwriter, sound artist, and podcaster who fearlessly delves into the depths of human experience.

At the core of Malba's artistry is her warm and haunting voice. With a vocal style that is equal parts soulful and ethereal, she effortlessly weaves her way through intricate and theatrical arrangements and her delicate alt-folk soundscapes create a mesmerizing atmosphere, transporting listeners to another world.

As Malba continues to push the boundaries of her artistry, her soulful vocals and thought-provoking compositions cement her status as an artist with a message. With each song she creates, she invites audiences to embark on an introspective and cathartic journey, giving voice to emotions and experiences that are often left unspoken. Her music serves as a powerful reminder that through vulnerability and art, we can find healing, strength, and our own authentic voice.

In 2024 Malba will release her debut album 'Uncovery' and venture into other artistic mediums, with a one-woman show, a book of poetry, and artwork in the making. Her voice now resonates not just in her music but through various creative outlets, following on from her exhibition and EP ‘Transformation’ in 2016.
