Malachi Eastling is an independent singer, songwriter and guitarist who made his professional solo recording debut earlier this year with the single “Sundown.” Although the song was his first official release, it represents a much larger catalog just waiting in the wings. With over 200 songs under his belt, the prolific tunesmith is ready to share his music with the world.
Originally from Wisconsin, Malachi Eastling has traveled to Southern California, Nevada and Hawaii. His music is inspired by the life he’s lived along the way. He’s been homeless in both LA and Vegas, and at separate times tragically lost his father, sister and brother. The singer now lives and makes music happily in Iowa with his girlfriend, pianist/vocalist Katie Yaddof.
“Contagious” is the brand new single from Malachi Eastling, released worldwide via all major streaming services on August 5, 2022. A solo acoustic guitar opens the melancholy acoustic dark pop tune as it introduces the song’s central staccato chord progression. An ensemble of strings and keys enters the mix as the singer steps to the mic with the melancholy tale of a toxic relationship.
