Malice & Mario Q&A

Your names: 
Malice & Mario Sweet.

Where are you from? 
Seattle, Washington, USA.

Who else is in your band?
My wife and I.

How would you describe yourselves?
We would describe ourselves as a smooth eclectic mix of neo soul, R&B hip hop and funk. 

Who are your main influences musically?
Malice's main influence is Erica Badu and Mario's main musical influence is D'Angelo. 

What do you hope to achieve in music?  
We hope to achieve a positive feel-good vibe that makes people dance and look at life for the beautiful canvas that it is. We make music that we love in hopes that it evokes human emotion. 

What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why?
The highlight of our career so far has been touring with our larger conglomerate 'The Physics' all throughout the United States. Selling out both LA's 'The Key Club' and New York's 'Bowery Ballroom'.

And what’s the moment you want to forget?
Only we probably most likely want to forget it would be our very first performance as a duet. We had so much nerves that we barely could relax and enjoy ourselves. From the crowd response it went well but we were more nervous than we ever been. It was a great growing experience but definitely a moment we will never forget because it was our first time performing live. 

If you had to pick just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why?
It would have to be our very first song that we ever released 'Speed of Light'. The song beautifully illustrates our love and our ideology on exploring life in love as a couple. 

Where can we listen to it?

Anything else you’d like to say about your band/music that I forgot to ask?
You can expect more music from us in the future as we continue to grow in life & love.
