Sunday Sessions this week are brought to you by LA based singer/songwriter Molly Moore, a genuine chameleon who writes songs from deep within. In her recent tracks like Natural Disaster, Hallucinating and Break, she moves seamlessly from lighter folk-influenced sounds through to darker and sometimes edgy pop that comes from a variety of influences. Her songs beckon and feed off of a large audience of diverse listeners. Although her sound is unique, if you could compare her to any star today we would say Ellie Goulding or Lana del Rey. Others have even compared her to the highly regarded 90’s singers like Suzanne Vega, Joan Osborne and Lisa Loeb. Molly’s current influences include newcomers Sam Smith and Banks.
Molly has caused quite a stir recently with her haunting, addictive track Natural Disaster. EDM Girl had this to say about it:
“Molly Moore’s track Natural Disaster is quite fantastic. Her voice is strong, and the production behind the track compliments it nicely. The chorus really sets the track apart, and gives the track a bit of edge. The lyrics are meaningful, and you can hear the life behind the words.” Take a listen below and see what you think.
As you may expect, developing these styles comes from an early age. Molly hails from the Bronx and grew up in Westchester, New York. Fast forward to adulthood and Molly has moved to Los Angeles, initially as a writer. But response was swift and her songs Ready For Love and Hollow were picked up and transformed into uncharacteristic EDM successes by Canadian Felix Cartal and veteran Dutch duo Dubvision.
Molly signed with manager Ric Aliberte and has worked with a variety of producers, mainly with Steve Dresser to help hone her sound. Molly has been working closely with singer/songwriter Brandyn Burnette (Sony ATV, with songs recorded internationally by Jake Miller, Auryn, Hedley, and others), with whom she travelled to Sweden and Norway in May 2014 on a songwriting junket for BMG.
All we can say is that we look forward to much more of Molly Moore !
Molly has chosen a beautiful smooth Sunday Session playlist this week:
1- Local Natives – Ceilings
“I’ve been a huge fan of Local Natives for a while… I love how their lyrics so beautifully capture a split moment in time and the weight/meaning of that moment. This song, to me, is about insecurities/vices and how they can capture you, but also about how the right kind of love can set you free from all of them.”
2- Rhye – Open
“This song pulls at my heart strings… It is poetry, really. A love song that reminds me of my love every time I listen. And the video is wonderful.”
3- Brandyn Burnette – I Wanna Be (Free)
“This is a very special artist you will want to attune yourself to early on. I Wanna Be (Free) is a song I had the honor of being a part of… Whether we are chained by stress, substances, relationships that are unsatisfying emotionally, spiritually, physically…. One thing I think a lot of people today can agree on is ‘We Wanna Be Free’.
