Flipping a Fender Stratocaster upside-down, acclaimed singer/songwriter/lefty guitarist Malina Moye fills a void in the entertainment industry. Lauded as a musical pioneer and one of the world's top guitarists by Guitar World Magazine, Moye has carved out her own lane in today's music scene as one of the few artists in history able to straddle both Rock and Soul genres, and has become one of the world’s premier guitarists of this generation. Her brand of music, fashion and philanthropy has made Malina one of the most visible artists in the world.
With the Rock visionary’s latest release Bad As I Wanna Be, Moye encompasses a gumbo of Funk, Rock and Soul. The well-crafted songs display memorable melodies and astute songwriting. Critically acclaimed and a commercial success worldwide, the album has landed at the top of several Billboard charts for over five weeks, receiving accolades from Billboard, People Magazine, Guitar World Magazine, and many more. Parade Magazine states that, "Moye has proven herself once again as an über-talented, electric guitar power house, and NPR’s The Current states that Malina is reinventing the Minneapolis sound.
“During my process writing this record, I kept coming back to the celebration of self and the overall climate of where we are as people. If you feel under appreciated, overlooked and like you don't matter, celebrate yourself—be your own super hero. That’s what ‘Bad As I Wanna Be’ means to me,” states Moye.
Several songs on Moye’s last two albums garnered positions in the Top 40 on several Billboard charts. Malina makes her big screen acting debut in the much buzzed about film The Samuel Project to be release in theaters and on Netflix Worldwide in 2018.
With accolades from publications such as Billboard, Guitar World, and Vogue and having graced the stages on some of music's biggest stages—SXSW, Bospop, and the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Malina Moye brings a unique brand, charisma, and emotion to music unlike any artist in the world today.
Taylor Seaberg is the lead guitarist and songwriter for "Seaberg," a hip-hop, alt-jazz, and neo-soul band featuring Justin Halverson (bass), and Carlos Kelley (drums). Often soulful and punk driven, the group carries a vibrant energy. Under their former name of "People Will Dance," Seaberg's in-studio performance of their song "Vibes" was featured in City Pages' Local Frames and the Local Current blog's Friday Five music video roundups. Seaberg has also performed at an MPR sponsored album release show for Chastity Brown's "Silhouette of Sirens" at The Fitzgerald Theater, a Greenroom Magazine sponsored show for Oshun, as well as Minneapolis Institute of Art's Third Thursday Art + Lit events.
