LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 23, 2012) - Singer/Songwriter/Multi-instrumentalist Tina Malia debuts today her highly anticipated pop/electronic album "The Lost Frontier." Malia delivers a rawness and authenticity through her extraordinary voice as well as in her storytelling. Each song on "The Lost Frontier," which is the first pop/electronic album to get the RealSing.org stamp of vocal authenticity (realsing.org), is powerful on its own: the sensuous single "Serendipity," the global electronic introspection of the title track to the building dance beat of "Undercover" and the inspirational groove of "Spark." Upon each listen, something new is learned, as each of the 10 original tracks is part of the greater whole, which at the end of the day is an affirmation of love, of hope, of responsibility for ourselves and each other. Because this defines Tina, she is the first indie artist to be named an Ambassador of Peace for the new global brand Army Pink (www.facebook.com/armypinkgirls.
"'The Lost Frontier' is about acknowledging and understanding creation and decay, hope and despair, beauty and destruction and remembering that we have the power to choose what we do with that knowledge," said Tina Malia.
