Mahalia Barnes has been in and around music her entire life.

Throughout her childhood years she was exposed to everything from Ray Charles, Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett to Ike and Tina Turner, Aretha Franklin, Donny Hathaway and Stevie Wonder, all of which helped shape her into the powerhouse soul and blues vocalist that has jaws dropping every time she picks up a mic.

Hard Expectations was recorded at Freight Train Studios in Botany and mixed at Apple Street Studios in Berrima and features US guitarist Kirk Fletcher (The Fabulous Thunderbirds) playing on all tracks and blues/rock powerhouse, Joe Bonamassa, taking the guitar solo on Move On. The title track, Hard Expectations, was written by Cold Chisel’s Don Walker and has already been added to national ABC Local Radio playlists.

The album features 9 original songs written by members of The Soul Mates, as well as the title track, Hard Expectations, and covers of Curtis Mayfield’s Hard Times and The Pointer Sisters’ You Gotta Believe.
