As the sexiest troubadour on the folk circuit, Moorea Malatt is known as The Naked Folksinger. This L.A. County born self-proclaimed 'valley girl' honed her songwriting in a hippy college town and then her particular brand of performance in the booming cabaret-burlesque scene in her chosen home of Seattle, Washington. Her goal is to merge the naughtiness, comedy and wit of cabaret theater with the stuffier, more serious folk scene she came of age in. Moorea leads a musician's double life and can be seen playing an upbeat set fully clothed and bouncing joyfully on a songwriter's coffeehouse or small theater stage and then later the same night - naked covered by her Martin at one of your city's finest cabaret dinner theaters. As the traditional troubadour, her strumming and picking is solid, her projection and enunciation crystal clear, which is fortunate since you will not want to miss a word of wit or nuance. You are enchanted with her sweet and innocent voice, until she grabs you by the collar with her varied and sometimes racy topics: deviant sexuality, global warming, sadomasochism, Jewish culture, reproductive organs, hypochondria, torrid affairs, and of course, Jesus. Eight years of experience as a touring musician, two studio albums (Love and Lack Thereof and Cut and Color) and a live album (The Naked Folksinger, LIVE) set Moorea up for the 2008 release of Quickie, an acoustic album of her most 'intimate' love songs linking sex and love to peace, politics and happiness.
