Molly Stevens grew up in Macon, GA, singing in church and at many revivals led by her grandfather, a celebrated preacher around the Southeast. Growing up in Macon, home to the Allman Brothers and Otis Redding, among others, Stevens never knew a time when southern rock or soul wasn’t floating through the air. “Singing was just always a huge part of my life,” says Stevens. “I’d get off the school bus and my mom would have a dress waiting for me and before I knew it I was headed off to sing at a revival of some kind. That was my childhood. When I was about 10 I played on stage with Johnny and June Cash and didn’t even know who they were at the time! But I love saying I “opened” (wink) for them. ”
Stevens studied theatre in college and moved to New York City shortly thereafter with acting aspirations. It wasn’t long, however, until she realized music was her true passion. Armed with a vintage 1950s Gibson acoustic given to her by her grandfather shortly before he died, she moved to Nashville in 2009 intent on turning her passion into a career.
Molly has toured with acts such as Lindi Ortega, Darlingside, Billy Joe Shaver, Mindy Smith, Griffin House, Angie Apparo, the Indigo Girls, Christian Lopez, Natalie Stovall and The Drive, Elizabeth Cook, Bonnie Bishop along with many others. Molly is a powerhouse vocalist who lays her soul on the stage for all to feel. Complimented by raw and real lyrics that capture the audience, she reels you in to the depth of her heart as she sings about her story. She has performed at all venues across the country such as Rockwood Music Hall, Eddie’s Attic, and The Evening Muse as well as many festivals including the CMA fest two years in a row and 30A Songwriter’s festival.
Honesty always attracts a crowd, and its proven to be a career changing tool for Nashville based Carolinian Casey Clark. A firm believer in the power of a well crafted tune, Clark is on a relentless journey to capture the stories and scenery of rural America before they are wiped away.
Showcasing these stories is a 5 song EP with Grammy Award Winning Engineer Matt Ross Spang (Jason Isbell, Drive by Truckers, Margo Price). From steel stomping Jesse James inspired robbery song “Train;” to hard working beer cave anthem, “Get My Chair Out,” Clark continues to sing his charming southern truth. Trust me, your ears are better for it!
