Molly Sullivan


Molly Sullivan (Cincinnati)

Molly Sullivan is a fascinating study in contrasts. On her two releases to date — 2012’s Bad Weather (Musings) and 2013’s Winter ‘13 — and with her increasingly anticipated live appearances, Sullivan has taken the trappings of standard singer/songwriter fare and elevated them to the level of esoteric art happenings. More than a few people were surprised by her Singer/Songwriter win at this year’s Cincinnati Entertainment Awards ceremony, but those people clearly had not yet experienced Sullivan’s experimentally masterful approach to material that, at its heart, is front loaded with infectious melodicism, heartfelt lyrics and emotive vocal interpretations. Molly Sullivan’s fans can’t wait to hear what she comes up with next.
