Malina Moye has been on the charts long before her solo debut. She served time on Sony’s writing team for about two years and has worked with such Grammy award winning greats as Prince, Sounds of Blackness, Kelis and R. Kelly.
Moye was nominated for Los Angeles Music Award’s “Best R&B Artist of
The Year” and went on to win “Best R&B Video of the Year.” She also garnered eligibility for eight Soul Train and Lady of Soul Train Music Awards. An Alicia Keys with an electric guitar, Malina is the first African American left-handed, female guitarist endorsee to join the Fender Guitar stable, joining the ranks of Eric Clapton and John
Mayer. She is featured in the soon-to-be-released UK documentary “Stratmaster: The Greatest Guitar Story Ever Told” and has recently been recruited by Prince Charles as a UK ambassador for the Prince’s Trust.
Following her daddy’s advice to “work the stage like a man”, Malina has paved a niche for herself as an energetic entertainer who goes all out at shows and is known for her dynamic stage presence. Her debut album “Portrait of a Woman” is set to be released on her own label WCE Records.
WCE stands for “walking, commodity, entertainment” and basically this means that she can be branded not only as a musician but a writer, actress and model. Yes this sister raised a pretty penny by putting out a calendar of herself to finance her musical endeavors. Not bad for a woman who arrived in LA practically penniless and had to survive off of two tacos a day.
