Molly has toured the world as a bassist, guitarist, and singer—joining the backing bands of Atlanta’s indie songstress, Faye Webster; west coast troubadour Sam Outlaw; and Austin Texas’s boozily existential poet, David Ramirez, as well as providing her uniquely fragile and captivating harmony vocals on over 50 records in just a few years. Molly later teamed up with longtime friends Juan Solorzano and Zachary Dyke, both having made their marks on Nashville’s indie music scene as producers and multi-instrumentalists themselves, to properly record and release another record of her own.
“Molly Parden, a longtime favorite of the NPR pop critic [Ann Powers.] The breakup songs on Parden’s new EP are melancholy, but there is a ‘dreaminess’ to it.”
She made her late night debut this past April; watch her perform “Feel Alive Again” on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
For all its unapproachable beauty, the heart of Molly’s music is humble and profoundly human. They are songs that remind us that heartbreak isn’t simply another marketable human emotion, but is more like a familiar place—a sacred space within all of us. We are all born with a deep sense of loss, and great art has a way of articulating our personal tragedies— both the ones we’re born into, and the ones we write and direct ourselves. It makes listening to “Rosemary” feel like falling into a dream or a distant memory— a beautiful reminder of something we’ve known all along.
