Pop-Rock maven and international guitar superstar Malina Moye is set to release her new album “Bad As I Wanna Be” in March 2018 on WCE Records and has unveiled the striking album cover that projects Moye as a warrior princess with her weapon of choice—a Fender Stratocaster. Moye states, “The record’s sound is a reflection of my DNA growing up in Ohio and Minnesota. Being influenced by the Minneapolis sound, I can’t help but blend Funk, Rock, and Soul.” She adds, “I’d like to think I’m concocting my own musical identity within today’s music landscape and have always looked at myself as the next generation of that sound with the goal of evolving and creating something contemporary.”
When asked about the themes of the album, Moye reveals, “When I was writing ‘Bad As I Wanna Be,’ I kept coming back to a celebration of self. This record is for you. If you feel underappreciated, overlooked and like you just don’t matter, then celebrate yourself—be your own superhero. This album was a personal letter from me to whoever will listen.”
Malina concludes, “It’s about redefining the status quo and being unapologetically you. Because of where we are as a nation, it’s obvious there are still underlying prejudices in America’s DNA. I feel sometimes it’s important to start a conversation about issues that are important to you like the absence of diverse woman in certain areas of the music industry.
With accolades from Huffington Post, Billboard Magazine, and Rolling Stone, the new album will not only have you dancing but thinking as well.
Malina Moye has carved out her own lane among the new breed of Rock artists with her unique blend of Funk, Rock, and Soul. From honoring the Queen of England and playing on Experience Hendrix Tours to being featured at Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s tribute concert for music pioneer Chuck Berry, Moye has been considered a premier guitarist with Guitar World Magazine, which named her one of “the top 10 female guitarists to know.” Her record “Rock & Roll Baby” has garnered three Billboard charting singles on various charts in the Top 40.
