Auditions have begun in Santa Monica, California, for musicians to appear on pop / jazz singer Moira Cue’s upcoming new blues album, to be produced later this year.
RECORDING ACADEMY Director / C.E.O. NEIL PORTNOW shook hands with Moira Cue during Grammy week, and wished her success in her work. Clive Davis’ office stated that Moira Cue’s new song ‘California’ on her demo is very memorable, and that they couldn’t get it out of their head. America’s Got Talent called the song ‘A hit.’
MOIRA CUE, whose last L.A. performances were at the THE KNITTING FACTORY and THE MINT, began her performance training at THE SCHOOL OF THE ART INSTITUTE OF CHICAGO through the CHICAGO CIVIC OPERA. She was last under tutelage with vocal coach legend GLORIA BENNET who trained GUNS & ROSES front man AXL ROSE among other stars.
In addition to a successful acting and singing career, Moira Cue is a master painter, having shown at some of New York City’s and Chicago’s finest galleries. With over 1,000 paintings to her credit, she has wowed the art world with her ‘1 million kisses,’ and an installation of 365 miniature paintings, for her ‘Painting a day’ series. With works in the collection of celebrity / collector MADONNA, and real estate mogul GRANT CARDONE among more, Moira Cue’s artwork has been compared by critics to her influences of FRIDA KAHLO, GUSTAV KLIMT, and PICASSO.
Influenced musically by jazz legends such as BILLIE HOLIDAY and EARTHA KITT, as well as BJORK and Madonna, Moira Cue’s first full length offering is destined for iconic status and greatness in the world of music.
