Who is Malina Moye?

Malina Moye is an American singer-songwriter, lefty guitarist, and entrepreneur who fuses R&B, Soul and Rock. Fender guitars recognizes Malina as one of their first African-American left-handed upside-down female endorsee to join the fender family. She founded WCE Records in 2004. After releasing her single "Girlfriend" and cross-marketing it with her new calendar "Spend 12 Months With Malina Moye: Hot Fun in California Sun," she caught the attention of critics alike, who dubbed Malina a "Madonna-like ingénue of marketing". This helped land her song, "Girlfriend", on the R&B Hip-Hop Sales Billboard listing at number 43 for one week. Recently, Guitar World Magazine named Moye as one the ten female guitarists in the world to know.

Moye's next single "Alone" released independently peaked at number 10 on the R&B Hip-Hop single sales charts, number 93 on the Hot R&B Airplay charts, and number 27 on the Hot 100. She has appeared on national TV shows including Weekends at the D.L., Emeril Live and morning shows such as Good Morning Chicago and Showcase Minnesota. In 2007, Moye was featured in the UK documentary Stratmaster: The Greatest Guitar Story Ever Told, alongside guitar legends Robert Cray, Mark Knopfler, and Jimi Hendrix, Moye has also been seen on the catwalk and on the silver screen.
