Mal Magorel bio


Don’t let the title of her debut album fool you – there is nothing askew when it comes to Winnipeg-based singer/songwriter Mal Magorel’s buttery smooth sounds.

Mal’s jazz, funk and soul-infused vocals can be heard in all corners of her hometown, from the seediest nightclubs to the classiest corporate events. The powerhouse performer has worked with many of Winnipeg’s finest musicians (including Ron Paley, Danny Kramer, Jonathan Alexiuk, Christopher Berti, Ariel Posen and Helen White), and has established her place as a cornerstone of the local music scene.

When not sharing her original tunes and soulful covers with café, cabaret and club audiences, Mal also showcases her sensual chops as half of acoustic duo Acoustic Soul, gets the party started as a frontwoman for numerous wedding and event bands and explores her alternative side with electronic dance outfit Vesely Couture.

Mal is ecstatic for the August 21 release of Malfunktion – a project three years in the making. The album blends a lifetime of musical influences into a style all Mal’s own, with an eclectic mix of pop and soul spanning from Motown-esque to the sly, smooth sounds of 90s pop/R+B.

Mal has crafted 10 original songs showcasing her passion and fiery attitude, ripping subject matter from the pages of her diary to bring music fans stories of love, heartbreak, connection, perseverance, sadness and determination.

Malfunktion is the manifestation of a 32-year love affair between a woman and the magic music can bring to life.

And Mal can’t wait to see where the relationship goes next!
