Pat Moore:

Pat Moore’s voice has a warm and expressive quality, as perfectly suited to a rich ballad, as it is to an up-tempo power song. She moves easily from the storytelling of the singer/songwriter genre, to the lonesome sound of traditional country and bluegrass. Born and raised in Ottawa, Ontario, she grew up in a house filled with music, from show tunes to Peter, Paul, & Mary, and Gordon Lightfoot; and later jazz masters like Ella Fitzgerald and Ray Charles to bluegrass legends like Bill Monroe, and Flatt and Scruggs. As a young girl she would sing harmonies with her sisters while doing the supper dishes – songs from the Momas and Papas, and Simon and Garfunkel. 


Ottawa Showbox calls Malak 'one of the most powerful and beautiful voices in town'. US born, Egypt raised, and now calling Ottawa home, Malak was immersed in diverse musical influences from a young age. Since winning multiple vocal competitions throughout Egypt and Europe, including Greece, Germany and Italy, Malak has turned her youthful passion for music into a flourishing music career. At 21, Malak is completing a degree in music performance and songwriting at Carleton University and has garnered many accolades for her songwriting and musicianship.
