I make music from the hear to heal the mind.
Introduction

Singer, Songwriter, and producer are just some of the labels to describe Chaquis Maliq (Shuh-Kees Mah-Leek). Representing the new breed of women artists taking ownership of their musical paths by leading the songwriting and production of their musical creations, Chaquis Maliq is redefining the playing field as a multi-talented creator.

But before this San Francisco Native could even fathom engineering and producing her first two albums, The “Demonstration Vol. I” and“Veracity”; Chaquis was first a poet and theatrical spoken word artist, with piano playing background. It wasn’t until Chaquis relocated to the DMV (District of Columbia, Maryland,Virginia), that all her musical avenues dispersed from her heart and mind.

Already inspired by Soul, Funk, Gospel, Jazz, and Alternative music, Chaquis always admired guitar players. In 2011 Chaquis discovered a new love, which created her warm melodic, sweet blues,and honey jazz sound. The credit goes to her classical acoustic guitar aka Mr. Maliq. Entering this new chapter of her acoustic urban folk journey, Chaquis will release her first guitar project, “Harmonies of Me,”  in Spring 2013. Although it’s a new beginning for Maliq, she still intends to create music to uplift her listeners and keep them encouraged.  

Highlights in her burgeoning career include her first place award in 2008 for vocal excellence in a showcase sponsored by the National Association for Black Female Executives in Music and Entertainment (NABFEME). And, in 2009, she received media attention as the sole performance artist to be featured in coverage of the Captial Hip Hop Soul Fest on NationalGeographic.com, the web platform for the international publication National Geographic. Maliq also performed at the Black Family Reunion-Washignton D.C. and the International  Soul Summit in Atlanta,GA and more to come.
