"When I first heard Molly’s music, it hooked me. They have a great voice. Really cool songs. Obviously those things matter a ton but Molly also seemed to really have the other thing that is vital to being a musician and that’s the desire and work ethic to get yourself out there and do the hard work of getting your music heard by folks. I’m a fan and I can’t wait to see where the path Molly chooses and follows takes them next." -Will Hoge
