About Molly:
Molly is a musician, song-writer, and performing artist with a history of many projects and collaborations. As she grows as an artist in creating solo work she continues to explore the truths and constructed realities of what it means to be alive as a woman of color navigating old and new territories through sound and space. Her unique past and desire for a sense of absolute freedom not only inform her emotive style of singing but also narrate her thought-provoking lyrics making for a moody, eclectic, colorful, and soulful mixture of voicings. realmolly.com

About Blushing Monk:
Blushing Monk loves exploring the different sounds and styles found within jazz history, from Monk to MMW, from Ellington to Kneebody, all while putting our own spin on the genre with our blending of modern swing, hip hop, and fusion. Formed in 2017 under band leader Dutcher Snedeker, this group has performed at various West Michigan venues and festivals, including GRandJazzFest 2017, West Michigan Wine and Jazz Festival 2018, and Willowsong Music Festival 2018. blushingmonk.bandcamp.com/releases
