Fresh from her sold out European tour, singer/guitar heroine Malina Moye is sure to make tongues wag with her new video “K-Yotic.” The exciting new video premiered exclusively on GuitarWorld.com, and it launches on Vevo as of today.
Malina is joined by two legends: Rock & Roll Hall of Famer William “Bootsy” Collins, who lends his distinctive visual style to the clip, and “K-Yotic” also boasts an appearance from drummer Frankie “Kash” Waddy. Both Bootsy & Kash were members of James Brown’s band before splitting off and joining Parliament/Funkadelic.
The “K-Yotic” video was created by indie film director and Spielberg protege Marc Fusco, who states, “I knew working with an amazing performer like Malina and the colorful Bootsy Collins, we could stretch the boundaries of reality with the K-yotic music video. So there’s a an Alice In Wonderland/Wizard of Oz vibe that adds a lot of fun and humor to the whole thing, yet it still remains sexy as hell.”
Malina Moye’s musical narrative boasts an impressive resume that includes making history as the first African-American woman to play “The Star-Spangled Banner” on guitar at a professional sporting event, all the way to performing at tribute concerts saluting legends Chuck Berry and Stevie Wonder. She’s performed as support to artists as varied as classic rock veterans Journey and current #1 hitmaker Robin Thicke. No stranger to the Billboard charts herself, Malina most recently was requested by Lord March and the Royals to play the British national anthem (God Save the Queen) on electric guitar on top of the palace roof at the Goodwood Estate for the Festival of Speed honoring the Queen’s 60 year reign.
Recently released as a digital single, “K-Yotic” is the first taste of Malina’s upcoming album, Rock ‘n Roll Baby, scheduled to be released in early 2014 via WCE Records, Distributed by BDG/ RED Distribution, LLC (a division of SONY Music Entertainment.)
