Singer/songwriter/guitarist Malina Moye has carved out her own lane amongst the new breed of Rock artists and has been considered a pioneer among the new generation of lead guitarists. Live, Moye delivers an electrifying stage show with an intoxicating fusion of Funk and Rock, and she is the first left-handed female player to be included on the legendary Fender Guitars' impressive roster of endorsees. Her critically acclaimed debut, Diamonds & Guitars, reached number 35 on Amazon.com and iTunes respectively. Diamond & Guitars showcased an eclectic pallet of music while preserving its mainstream appeal which put her on the road as an opening act for Robin
Thicke, as well as legendary rock group Journey. Moye has seen some radio success landing several singles on the Billboard charts, including her Top 10 single "Alone
" staying on the charts for over 32 consecutive weeks.
In 2012, Moye was the first female player to join the critically acclaimed Experience
Hendrix tour and then again in early 2014, alongside players such as Zakk Wylde, Buddy
Guy, and Kenny Wayne Shepherd. Last year, Guitar World Magazine named Moye as one of "the top 10 female guitarist to know," and a "female Jimi Hendrix
who rocks her ass off." During her 2013 Summer European tour, Malina played "God Save The Queen
" on guitar to honor the Queen
of England at the coveted Goodwood Festival of Speed. She also performed at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame tribute concert for pioneer Chuck Berry
with artists such as Joe Bonamassa, Merle Haggard, and Ernie Isley to name a few. Making history, Malina was the first African-American woman to play the National
Anthem on guitar at a professional sporting event; Vikings vs. Cowboys—the most watched NFL game of the year. In January 2014, Malina received the "Next Generation" She Rocks Award in the company of other industry leaders and winners such as Sheila
E., Janie Hendrix and Grammy Winner Gaby Moreno.
Malina will perform at the House of Blues in West Hollywood on October 11, 2014 with upcoming tour dates in select markets and throughout Asia in November to be announced soon.
