Groundbreaking guitar goddess Malina Moye has scheduled the release of her new EP, Rock & Roll Baby (WCE/BDG/Sony RED), for October 14, 2014.
Singer/songwriter/guitarist Malina Moye is a pioneer amongst the new generation of lead guitarists. Live, Moye delivers an electrifying stage show featuring 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.
Moye has performed with some of the most celebrated music icons in the world, including a Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Tribute performance for pioneer Chuck Berry, she headlined a sold out show with Chaka Khan honoring Stevie Wonder, as well being 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.
Diamond & Guitars showcased an eclectic pallet of music while preserving its mainstream appeal putting 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.
Her new six-song EP features Moye on vocals with her signature guitar and includes a sexy cover of Jimi Hendrix’s iconic song, “Foxy Lady,” as well as long-time collaborator Bootsy Collins on current single, “K-yotic.” Featuring songs produced by Grammy-nominee Grant Nicholas (Ne-Yo, Mya, Jon B), the EP will be available at digital retailers for $4.99 as well as a limited run physical release.
