Malachi Cush

We are delighted to introduce a new artist on our site.

Malachi Cush from Donaghmore in Co.Tyrone  was selected from thousands of applicants to take part in the BBC Fame Academy Production in 2002.  He joined eleven other young talented singer/ songwriters in the quest to win the coveted prize of a recording contract and a foot on the road to fame. 

Following his success on the show by reaching the top five, Malachi released his debut album with Mercury/Universal.  The album entitled ‘Malachi’ entered the UK top twenty album chart earning a silver disc by selling over 100,000 copies.

His self-penned single ‘Just Say you Love Me’ held the number one spot for five weeks in the easy listening chart in Thailand resulting in a showcase visit to Bangkok in November 2003.  Malachi was mobbed by enthusiastic fans on his arrival and spent a hectic seven days doing television and radio interviews along with a concert tour.

On his return to the UK Malachi was constantly in demand.  He became involved with the BBC Children In Need Project sharing a stage with Girls Aloud and Westlife on a live nationwide broadcast from the Odyssey Arena in Belfast.  He embarked on a solo tour of Ireland in early 2004, the highlight of the tour being the the Waterfront Hall concert in Belfast.  He is now a familiar voice on BBC Radio Ulster regularly standing in for Hugo Duncan and George Jones.  Big Buzz Magazine awarded him most popular Irish radio personality for 2005. He currently hosts a daily radio music programme with Five FM and the Sunday show on Six FM, The Malachi Cush Juke Box.   Patron of the Autism charity Impact Trust, Malachi is often seen and heard on stage helping to raise funds for this worthwhile cause. He was invited by the NSPCC in Northern Ireland to participate in and help promote a charity single in 2004. In December 2005 he  performed at the Young Voices concert in the Odyssey Arena Belfast and played the lead role of Charles Charming in pantomime with the Bardaic Theatre company.

Malachi’s co-written song ‘Until we meet again’ was selected as one of four potential Ireland Eurovision songs and was performed on the Late Late show on RTE in Februay 2007.  The public vote placed it in the runner up position.

Having received the award for Best Irish Newcomer at the Irish World Awards in London in February 2005, Malachi was anxious to go back to recording Irish traditional and folk music he grew up with.  His new album ‘Celtic Heartbeat’ with Emerald Music  now on general release, reflects those feelings, giving fans the opportunity to hear him at his best.  With two more albums planned this year, Malachi will undertake an extensive tour in the Autumn.
