1. Hello Molly, can you tell me a little bit about yourself before you became a country musician?
I grew up in a sports family – I played basketball competitively most of my life. Growing up, I assumed I would play basketball in college and maybe be a coach one day. It wasn’t until I was 14 years old when the doctors found an eight-inch tumor in my femur bone, that I had the opportunity to step away from basketball for a little while, and dive into music.
2. What is the background story behind your latest single “Lovin’ You?”
My latest single “Lovin’ You” is a song that holds a lot of emotion for me. I’ve dated a few guys over the years, but this relationship was different. The high school boyfriends, although at the time seemed incredibly serious, just weren’t. Dating someone in college, someone who you see every single day and spend pretty much all of your time with, is just different. Spending so much time with one person and giving so much of yourself makes the end burn just a little more. After the breakup, I was in that bitter stage for a while, feeling like the whole relationship was a waste of time; especially since it was my first year I was attending college. I wished the whole thing had never happened. As the song says, “If I could hit rewind, I’d undo lovin’ you.”
3. What made you decide to create a lyric video for “Lovin’ You?”
Initially, a music video sounded ideal for this song, but considering the pandemic, it just wasn’t going to work out right now to have a production crew. The lyric video was a nice alternative. I write with a lot of unfiltered emotion; I want my fans to connect to my songs and to hear how I’m feeling and think “Ah someone else feels that way too.” When writing “Lovin’ You,” it was no different – these lyrics are raw and real and now everyone can see them in the lyric video!
4. Is there anything else new coming up with your music in 2020?
YES! I have been talking with my team and we have some exciting news to share soon about a NEW single! It has been so much fun to share “Lovin’ You” and have such amazing feedback, but I am ready and excited to get some new music out there for my fans.
5. What was one of the first country album you ever bought?
I grew up in the Carrie Underwood/Taylor Swift era – I remember getting Carrie Underwood’s “Some Hearts” album in 2005 and Taylor Swift’s first album in 2006. Carrie and Taylor are still two of my favorites to this day!
6. What is your recording process like when creating new music?
I am honestly still amazed at how talented studio musicians are. I write these songs alone in my bedroom, and I usually have somewhat of an idea how I want the instrumentals to sound, but each and every time that I’ve stepped into the studio to record, I am blown away by what the musicians and my producer create. It is a surreal feeling to watch your song come to life. I don’t think I will ever get tired of that feeling.
7. How would you describe your music?
One word I would use to describe my music is “real.” And I’m not saying that other music is fake – lol! But when someone is listening to my music, they know that it’s raw and personal, yet relatable. Pairing a catchy tune with sincere lyrics makes for good music, which is exactly what I strive for. My songs have a country vibe with some rock n’ roll flair.
8. What is one of your favorite quotes?
“It ain’t about how hard you hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward.” – Rocky Balboa
I have been obsessed with Rocky since I was little – they are such inspiring movies!
9. Is there anything else you would like to share?
I am so grateful for my team, family, friends, and the fans for supporting me and my music the way they do. Going for your dream can be scary, but the people in my life make it so worth it!
