WILD CARD - PRESS RELEASE
Reclaiming the throne: Moana A and LAIN on being a “Wild Card”
French Caribbean-born singer/songwriter/globetrotter Moana A joins forces
with producer LAIN on “Wild Card," a female empowerment song with a
modern western vibe, set to be released on January 17th.
Wild Card is a song that fits perfectly with the currently ever-present theme of
Female Empowerment. The attitude-driven track starts with the words: “I won’t close my
mouth, my eyes, my heart. I’m a lady but that’s not all. Not on display, I’m a doll. I am loud,
boy. I’m a scandal,” setting the stage for 3 minutes of unapologetic energy and swagger.
The belty vocals drive the message home that women don’t need permission to be whatever
and whoever they are, while keeping an element of fun in parts like the sing-along bridge.
Moana (that is her real name, sorry Disney) became a natural Wild Card
while growing up on a sailboat in Saint Martin. Her first album “dotted” was crowdfunded via
IndieGogo in 2013, and followed by an endorsement deal with Daisy Rock Guitars.
Based in LA, she regularly makes time to tour the world: Abu Dhabi, Indonesia,
India, the Mediterranean region, the Caribbean, and all over the USA.
She’s also a singer for the YouTube hit kids’ show Badanamu.
With “Wild Card,” she asserts her position as a confident artist
who doesn’t need to “fit the mold.”
LAIN is an LA-based writer and producer from Mexico City. His sound combines
indie-electronic and pop elements, paired with orchestral undertones. Jose has worked
with Mayssa Karaa (Grammy-nominated singer / Sony Classical), Fato (Pepe Aguilar,
Alejandro Fernández), Carlos Castro (Selena Gomez), Roxanne Seeman (Earth, Wind & Fire,
Barbra Streisand), Dalton Diehl (Aaron Cole), and RIVVRS (Primary Wave).
He has written and produced music for Silver Gun Records premiere artists, such as
Nadia Chechet and Kennedy Williams, and LA-based indie rock band Paper Girls.
Let this song be your anthem when you need a little boost and convincing
that you are more than enough, and that “nobody else dictates your life.”
