After a whirlwind 12 months touring across Europe and the UK, supporting the likes of Rod Stewart, Blondie and Mick Hucknall, being A-listed on BBC Radio 2 whilst amassing over a million YouTube views, Moya is delighted to finally announce her first headline tour.
To round up an already incredible year for Moya, she is now set to headline 10 dates across the UK, including shows at London’s Roundhouse Theatre, Edinburgh’s Pleasance Theatre and The Birmingham Temple commencing November the 30th.
Moya’s breakthrough came late last year when her single ‘Making Me Fall’ spent 4 weeks on BBC Radio 2 A-List gaining support from the likes of Ken Bruce, Chris Evans and even Radio 1’s Fearne Cotton, it was no surprise critical acclaim was quick to follow with backing from the likes of The Independent, Q and The Daily Mirror.
Moya, only 22, kicked off the year touring with ex-Razorlight star Andy Burrows. If this wasn’t a golden opportunity in itself, Moya then nabbed the support slot for Simply Red front man Mick Hucknall’s UK tour. Whilst playing to thousands across Ireland and the UK with Mick, Moya went one step further securing her place as a special guest for Rod Stewart’s 14-date UK/EU arena tour, including two nights at London’s 02 Arena.
When the tour ended Moya was delighted to personally invited back for an extra 9 shows in September, by Rod himself. “Touring with Rod has been the biggest moment of my career so far” “He’s such a dynamic performer, I’ve learnt so much from watching him, It’s made me a better performer.”
It would only be fitting that after supporting two British icons her own UK headline tour would soon follow. Across the 10 dates Moya will be playing songs from her 2012 debut album, Lost & Found, along with showcasing brand new songs, taken from her upcoming mini album, set for release later this year, including the new single ‘Come and Get It,’ which has been receiving critical acclaim since premiering with the Daily Telegraph.
