About moi navarro
For Moi Navarro, aka “moi”, growing up, music was never too far from home and a guitar was always within reach. Both of his parents were singer songwriters in the early 70's. moi is an independent artist, in music for eight years, based in Riverside, California and has since gained a prominent regional, statewide, nationwide and world wide fan base. His diversity is more than just skin-deep. The music is interwoven with influences of funk, rock, soul, folk and jazz. moi’s ballads are very emotional, they tell a story and invoke tremendous feeling, portraying sincere transparency, letting you see into his soul. Music, to moi, is best described as a marriage. “Marrying a set of meaningful lyrics with an intense, unique and beautiful melody, is the key to a great song”.
Moi easily reaches a wide variety of people with his passionate music, straight-forward lyrics, and unique stories. The purpose and direction of his music, is to connect with as many people as he can through words and melodies. Being able to communicate with others on how he feels inside through his music, comes to him as second nature. It just flows.
An up-and-coming voice in indie rock music, Moi has earned a massive grassroots following through hard work, determination, and constant touring throughout the past eight years. Through his journey, with countless hours of practice, “you fall, you get up, you fall, you get up”, moi continues to grow, and is blessed that through every stage, people have been touched and encouraged by his music.
In January 2008, moi signed a publishing deal with Wake Music Group and Grammy Award winning Producer Ric Wake, one of the music industry's top producers in the world.

Recent reviews of the EP include: “Those of us who were blown away by his previous albums were left shaking our heads in disbelief at the notes that Moi forces into submission in “Listen to Love” and “The pure vocals found in the NYC Sessions EP are unmatched in the 21st century.
