Moya :

Born and bred in Poole, Dorset, Moya grew up on her mother’s music collection, a combination of Motown, soul, jazz and disco: “All the big Motown and soul artists have played a big part in moulding me into the singer I am today,” says Moya.  Her first foray into music was with her sisters, before joining a Saturday stage school at the age of 6, where she had her first taste of performing.  As a teenager, Moya continued to write music and perform at open mic nights, before finally deciding to move to Brighton last year, to pursue her career full time. 

After some serious song writing, including sessions in Sweden, Moya released her first EP, featuring the debut single, ‘Telling Tales.’ The track stormed onto regional radio stations up and down the country, and wowed Youtube and The Box regulars with an astonishingly accomplished underwater video, filmed for nothing in a borrowed swimming pool. This was followed by a cover of Primal Scream classic ‘I’m Losing More Than I’ll Ever Have,’ released as part of an acoustic EP, available at her live shows.

Her debut album ‘Lost & Found,’ was released last summer as a soft release, along with the singles, ‘Lost & Found’ and ‘Making Me Fall.’ Taking the airwaves by storm in October, ‘Making Me Fall’ spent 4 weeks on the BBC Radio 2 A-List, with interviews and countless plays across the station, including The Chris Evans Breakfast Show and Ken Bruce. Fearne Cotton loved the single, featuring it on her Radio 1 show and even Hollywood blogger Perez Hilton was won over, branding Moya ‘the female Bruno Mars.’ Other highlights included features in The Daily Mirror, The Daily Star, Reveal Magazine, along with fashion shoots in More Magazine and Bliss. 

She released her killer follow up single, ‘A Little More Love’ this April, going straight onto VH1. It quickly made Record of the Day and blanket press soon followed with The Independent including Moya as a One To Watch. The Metro gave her a page in their style section and the single was praised everywhere from Q, Star Magazine, The Huffington Post, Digital Spy & MSN. All of which meant the video for ‘A Little More Love’ has rocketed to over 560k views, pushing her total video views to over a million.

Focus is now on the next single, and a re-packaged album, to include ‘A Little More Love’ and the upcoming new tracks – due out later this summer. 

Then there’s also the small matter of her first arena tour… Having already played alongside the likes of Rizzle Kicks, Newton Faulkner, Karima Francis and Jack Savoretti Moya went on to support ex-Razorlight Andy Burrows early this year. She then supported Simply Red legend Mick Hucknall, winning over crowds across the country and helping her nail her biggest gig yet – Special guest of Rod Stewart on this new arena tour. Kicking off in June, it’ll see Moya playing her biggest venues yet, including 2 nights at the O2. 

‘I am unbelievably excited to be supporting Rod Stewart,’ says Moya. ‘I never thought I would be able to play arenas so early on in my career and I feel really privileged to be supporting such a legend!’

‘These past few months have been pretty amazing, but I’m even more excited about what the rest of this year could bring.’
