Molly McKinna

Inspired by modern and old-school folk, 20 year old Molly McKinna takes the ambience from modern alternative music and brings an introverted look into personal, yet relatable experiences, inviting you to visualise your own storylines within the soundscape.

“Her voice is like a touch…” - ForgottenBee, Online podcaster

Alongside influences such as Joni Mitchell, Gabrielle Aplin and Fleetwood Mac, Molly Also captures inspiration from the surroundings from her upbringing by the sea-side of Brighton; through intricate picking on the guitar, unique vocals and ambient instrumentation.

Originally documenting her development as a musician by posting ‘bedroom covers’ onto social media and YouTube, Molly soon grew as an artist writing her own songs, leading to her newly released debut EP ‘Cold Love’ featuring 5 original tracks.

‘Cold love’ documents the difficulties and emotions being in a young relationship- Molly shows an honest approach with the raw emotion shown in the lyrics as well as the poetic ‘storytelling’ theme each song and the EP as a whole carries.

This debut release is just the start for Molly as she continues to work on new repertoire, both solo and a number of collaborations with talented songwriters and producers. Expanding her sound as an artist and meeting her soft, melancholic vibes with chilled electronic tracks and alternative duets.

Following the release of ‘Cold Love’ Molly has many more singles up her sleeve she will be gracing her audience with, as well as a second EP, towards the end of 2018 right through to 2019. She then hopes to be confirming dates for her debut headline tour towards the end of the year.
