About MISHAL MOORE:
NYC based Singer/songwriter Mishal Moore and her band, The Fantastic Souls, spent 2010 performing to audiences across the east coast of America. From ‘spotlight’ performances such as Musikfest (in Bethlehem, PA), to opening for artists such as Zee Avi. Garnering critical acclaim for her live performances at some of New York’s legendary venues such as The Knitting Factory, SOB’s, Living Room and Arlene’s grocery (to name a few), Mishal has received dynamic responses.
Mishal is currently preparing for her album release. Her third, highly anticipated album ‘Bleed Out’ is due for release under Strictly Rhythm/Warner/Ill Friction Records in June 2011. It was produced by 2010/2011 grammy nominated Kenny Dope and features her singles, ‘It Ain’t Over’ and ‘Oh Lord’, which was licensed by Vanity Fair in their 2010 promotion of the Oscars.
