Last Friday, I had the immense pleasure of photographing the beautiful and talented Malia Civetz at the USC performance venue Tommy's Place.

Malia is a powerhouse vocalist. Her onstage energy and funky grooves had the crowd dancing and singing along through her set. From Stevie Wonder and MJ to some extremely catchy originals (that could easily go Top 40 if released), the song choice was as prime as the performance.

Enjoy some photographs below:

Malia was backed up by her equally talented and rockin' band consisting of Karina DePiano, India Pascucci, Rowdy Kanarek, Jonathan Sim, Casey Barth, Danny Wirick, Michael Armstrong, Justin Klunk and Gabe Martin. Each of these musicians is talented, kind, and a joy to be around. Keep doing what you love!

Speaking of love, I absolutely love the song "End of the Road," written by Casey Barth and performed by Malia. She sang it at this show and I haven't been able to get it out of my head since. Watch out for this upcoming songwriter.
