Malina Moye Shares Story of Struggle to Songwriting, Singles, Success

When guitarist and songwriter, Malina Moye, first moved to California from Minneapolis to pursue her passion for music and performance, she had just $20 in her pocket. She washed up in gas stations. She slept in her car between the front and back seats with clothes covering her so no one would notice her face. These were the early days before the Billboard chart-topping record, Bad as I Wanna Be, and recent viral single, “Enough.” For Moye, it was a good thing then that she wasn’t seen there in her car. But she’s come a long way since then. Now people can’t help but notice Moye. And she’s using that newfound attention to help others gain the notoriety and consideration they deserve, too.
