About Malachi

Malachi's songs blow modern country music backwards, invoking nostalgic feelings of historic family ties, railroads, and heartland America. He's forging his own brand of hopeful, relatable Americana, pulling from personal experience to connect with audiences on a deeply human level. The songs are written with a captivating honesty rarely found in modern music. He’s also an open, vulnerable songwriter: From the richly narrative lyrics to the melodic hooks, his work is infused with compassion and authenticity.

In July of 2021 he dropped his dynamic debut EP “Fearless”. Produced by GRAMMY-nominated, engineer/producer Matt Coles. Fearless celebrates the growth that can result from adversity.

With his single “An American Hero,” Jaggers conjures the wide open prairies where heartland music was born. It weaves an anthem dedicated to those who sacrificed their lives for our freedom. Inspired by his grandfather, who worked on the railroad and served in the Navy in World War II. In the fall of 2022, “An American Hero” was up for consideration for the GRAMMY ballot along with his most recent single “What Are You Waiting For?”

  • You'll be hooked!

    “Malachi played for my private party in August. My guest were wowed by his performance. He is one of the most engaging, talented performers I've ever seen. My guest happily tapped their toes, danced and sang along with all of his covers and were awed by his originals. If I could, I'd have him here every month. Treat yourselves...go see him at one of his gigs...you'll be hooked!”
