Growing up in the same household as two music teachers and performers meant that most of Molly’s youth was spent falling asleep to the twang of Deep Purple’s Smoke on the Water ; or to the sounds of singing students ascending their scales and to those evenings spent wishing she was old enough to attend her mother’s gigs. Molly’s family life has always revolved around writing, performing and teaching and this has contributed greatly to her love of music and her desire to build a career from it. Molly penned her first song at the age of ten and now at twenty, she’s amassed ten years’ worth of writing, recording and performing experience.

Since Molly’s professional debut in 2008 at 17 and fresh out of high school, she’s written and recorded a debut EP, “Cause and effect”; travelled to the USA and performed unofficial showcases in Austin during SxSW (South by South West) 2008 and 2009; performed a handful of solo shows in New York, including Googie’s at The Living Room lounge (named as one of the top 40 best music venues in America) and The Bitter end (New York’s oldest ‘Rock’ pub); travelled to London to meet with publishing company District 6 (Jamie Cullum, Amy Winehouse) to discuss her future within the British music industry; received interest from two major labels; been awarded the Australian Youth Week “Industry Award” by Marcia Hines for 2010 ; garnered nominations and finalist placings in Music Oz and the National songwriting competition; contributed her own chapter to upcoming novel by author Amanda Cole (I hate Cinderella, You are my future) “Who Needs Prince Charming?” (a book packed full of inspirational Australian women and their tips on life, love and getting what you want); funded her first official tour, the “Sometimes” solo tour, which included shows in regional NSW, the ACT and VIC; started recording her sophomore EP (due for release this year) and most recently, Molly accepted her invitation to perform at the Romerías de Mayo World festival of Youth arts in Holguin, Cuba in May 2011.

Molly’s music is alternate pop laced with undertones of soul, rock and jazz. Her voice is crystal clear with a maturity that belies her youth. She’s inspired by such artists as Dusty Springfield, Cilla Black, Sarah Vaughn, Janis Joplin, Tom Waits, Jack White, John Legend and The Beatles, but is influenced most particularly by Jamie Cullum.
