Critically acclaimed rocker Malina Moye is carving out her own genre-busting path with her sultry fusion of blues, rock and funk. Hailing from Cleveland, Ohio, Moye’s commitment to music, fashion and philanthropy have put her on an international platform. Her memorable melodies and astute lyrics are accentuated by her commanding lefty guitar riffs. The title of her 2018 EP, Bad As I Wanna Be, encompasses the sentiment in her songs and celebrates Moye’s unshakeble determination. With charisma, fire and heartfelt music, Moye brings her audiences to life.
2012 was a year of historic firsts for Moye—she became the first female to join the Experience Hendrix Tour and the first African American woman to play the National Anthem on guitar for a professional sporting event. Her unique style and sound has been praised in magazines including Billboard, Vogue, People and Guitar World. She has wowed audiences with opening performances for Robin Thicke and legendary rock group Journey. In 2012 she honored the Queen of England by playing “God Save The Queen” at the Goodwood Festival of Speed for the Queen’s sixty-year jubilee. In addition to appearing on world renowned stages—like SXSW, Bospop, and the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame—Moye continues to empower future generations through campaigns such as “Girl Rock Nation” and DriveHope.org.
