Award-winning singer / songwriter and guitarist / producer Molly Bancroft has tasted quite a bit in her life so far as a musician. Molly Bancroft creates a soulful and hypnotic sound, mixing the energy of rock, with a strong pop sensibility and electronic and orchestral influences that mesmerize the listener with catchy, hummable melodies.***
Molly started her musical journey early on in life, playing jazz sax and piano, starting her first jazz combo at age 14. Later on, Molly moved to Boston with a bunch of pawnshop instruments and a 4-track recorder and settled in Cambridge, as a regular in the open mic circuit, recording her first 7? single “Birds Fly Free/Walk Away” on Portland Oregon’s T/K Records, produced by Andy Hong.
Molly moved to Atlanta and formed LIFT, an alt rock band with major critical acclaim. Lift released 3 CDs and toured nationally with Indigo Girls as well as the years on the indie club tour circuit on the East Coast.
Soon after, Molly released her solo debut “Get Closer,” which won Rockrgrl Magazine’s Rockrgrl Artist of the Year Award (for her creative half-rap tune “Hey, Cheri”). The follow-up was a back to basics song-oriented EP called “Red Dirt Diaries.” Molly’s music soon found major placements in TV shows, and at the same time, Molly performed solo shows opening for artists such as Lori Carson and Marshall Crenshaw.
Never content to stay in one genre too long, Molly ventured to new territory, linking up with huge DJ producers Gabriel and Dresden and co-wrote and performed the hit “Tracking Treasure Down,” along with other tracks on their artist debut CD. That success (a #1 Billboard hit) led to more collaborations, including Italy’s Gianluca Motta (”Not Alone”) Spain’s John Shelvin, Dutch DJ Phynn, and “Fountains of Youth,” with Loverush UK, and others.
Currently, Molly is wrapping up a new album which merges her electro-pop soundscapes (think Sia and Imogen Heap) with shoegaze guitars with a sexy combo of beats, electronics, and shimmery orchestral arrangements.
With constant melodies and music bursting through, Molly offers an inspirational and grooving soundscape to daily life.
