Singer and songwriter Mallary Hope's brand new self-titled 7-song EP is already out. Released by Curb Records, the new set features powerful anthems such as "My God," worship staples such as "You Will Make a Way" and the heartfelt ballad "Pray for You."
With a powerful voice and a big dream, a hopeful 17 year old Mallary Hope left Cohutta, Georgia for Nashville to pursue a career in music. After countless hours of hard work and knocking on doors up and down music row, she established herself as a notable songwriter, with songs cut by popular artists like Faith Hill, Sara Evans, Lauren Alaina, Jana Kramer, Danny Gokey and Katie Arminger.
Though she was finding some successes as a songwriter, it wasn't until Mallary's transition and focus on Christian music that she really found her voice, a format that allowed her to make music that illustrated where she was in life, and truly make an impact on those listening.
"The transition was incredibly natural for me. Above all else, I'm a child of God, and my music has always reflected my life. For a while being 'Mallary Hope the singer' was all I was, and I looked toward that to find my identity. When I wasn't finding the success that I wanted, I began to really question who I was, why God created me, and my desire to create music vanished. It wasn't until I was listening to Christian radio while pregnant with my first child that I had this overwhelming sense of urgency to create something important with music that will touch and inspire other people.
I decided to use the gift He gave me for His glory. For the first time in my life, I didn't need validation from other people. I found my validation in Christ."

Mallary has started "Hope for the Day," a regular video series on social media with stories from her own life lined with positive messaging and hope for the viewers.
"I am finally doing exactly what I was put on this earth to do, and for the first time in my life, I finally don't feel any pressure - I am letting God take the reigns and be in control. If my music reaches just one heart, that's enough for me."
