Artist: MISS MOLLY SIMMS
Who: Glowing singer/songwriter who came to prominence as the leader of Bible Belt Sinners, a fun and flashy Midwest rockabilly band, started a successful solo career three albums ago (check her Spotify page) with a wider stylistic range. Known for her roughneck operatic voice which packs a lungful of dusty soul and straight-shooting lyrics, her music feels equally at home either hitchhiking across the windswept Texas Panhandle or boot-stomping in a greaser’s roadhouse in Detroit.
Info: The new LP boasts 10 original tracks acting as a heartfelt road trip through the rustic struggles of a working class prodigal. The familiar sights pass by: love, loss, drinking, dying. But Molly navigates this age-old, blues/country terrain with a rock ’n’ roll beat, revealing both a hard-worn grace and a lonely courage beyond her years.
