Just a day after completing a degree in Sound Arts in Minneapolis, Molly Dean hopped a plane and spent the next six months in Alaska convening with nature and writing new music. Molly returned to the lower 48 with restored energy and a battery of new songs and immediately jumped back on the stage. Always known for her unique, genre-defying live performances, Molly continues to captivate audiences, incorporating the RC 50 Loop station into her shows to create rich sonic tapestries.
Now writing for both guitar and piano, the primacy of her sultry vocals continues to drive her songs with sincerity and delicate passion. Her music has been described as a “deceptively simple” and her presence “enrapturing”-a songstress that eschews archetypal female folkisms with sexy, subtle rebellion.
Molly Dean has performed multiple times on A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor, in addition to opening for revered artists such as The Bodeans, The Honeydogs, Keri Noble, Michelle Branch, Pat Donahue, Billy McLaughlin and Daphne Willis.
Paula Carley is a Minnesota grown artist with roots extending across the plains and into the mountainous west. Her sincerity and skill as a guitarist, songwriter, and singer, invite each listener into a space where life is acknowledged and simplicity is appreciated. Performing mostly original songs and a few of her favorite covers, this listening experience is sure to be moving, soothing, or simply, enjoyable.
