As a child, she also spent several years living in Korea, as well as growing up with her Grandparents in Long Island, New York.

Malea is a graduate of the Manhattan School of Music. After appearing on Broadway in ‘The King and I,” Malea moved to Los Angeles. Malea’s career took a new turn as she toured for years supporting acts as diverse as TRAIN, Shawn Colvin, and Gavin DeGraw.
