Singer, songwriter, and producer are just some of the labels to describe recording artist Chaquis Maliq. Representing the new breed of female artists taking ownership of their musical paths by leading the engineering, songwriting and production of their musical creations, Chaquis Maliq is redefining the playing field as a multi-talented creator. Gifted with incredible vocal ability that has been compared to soul legends like Stephanie Mills and Chaka Kahn, Chaquis Maliq has emerged as a forerunner on the indie music scene. Born and raised in California, Chaquis began building a buzz around her music when she relocated to Baltimore, MD in the mid-2000’s and began working with east coast artists as a songwriter and singer. She first appeared on the single “Crazy” by rapper Jamma Wun and later sung on and co-wrote with him the song “Struggles” which later appeared on the 2009 album Oddly Romantic (available on iTunes and Amazon.com). While continuing to collaborate with Jamma Wun and numerous hip-hop and soul artists across the United States on projects as a vocalist and producer, Chaquis eventually produced her own CD The Demonstration Vol. I. This new project was the first product of her own independent label, QuiSound Entertainment she founded in 2006. Always inspired by the composing, production and writing skills of musical legends Prince, Aretha Franklin and Earth, Wind & Fire, Chaquis also went into producing her first CD project influenced greatly by new soul artists Missy Elliot, Andre 3000, Lauryn Hill, and, Lupe Fiasco. Their out-of-the-box artistry and very visible commitment to excellence in their craft motivated her to create a top-notch product. “I've been promoting, booking, producing, managing, critiquing, and engineering myself and my craft from day one for about three years,” Chaquis shares. “Music speaks to me by default. Songs come from a place that I can't see, smell, or touch.
