You never advance in your knowledge if you can’t step away, critique and advance from what you’ve already accomplished. I built a lot of the sounds and audio imaging from scratch, and there was a lot of vulnerability and trial and error along the way. It was a comedic process at times, but very rewarding.

Interview by Jacqueline Jax
host of A.V.A Live Radio
Band Name: MOLLĒ
Song name: 11:59
Music Genre: Alternative Pop
This song is a conversation with the last minute of the day. My lyrics tell the story of someone who is looking on their past or back at a part of life that’s coming to a close. The song challenges time and asks us why it’s so easy for time to move on yet it’s so hard to move on and heal.
My music is..
made all in house. Self written, arranged, performed, sang, mixed, and mastered by MOLLĒ. One thing that is over looked is an artist who can also produce, but also a female artist who can produce. A huge influence in my life is Imogen Heap. Her depth and creativity shines a light on something that just pushes to the wayside

How do you think this release represents your current direction..
For me it’s not only wanting to write honest lyrics about real life situations that most people can relate with and feel comfort knowing they are not alone in it, but also producing honest music that makes people feel something. My musical influences are very broad, and I pull from many directions, but the one thing that translates is emotion.
Where do you create your music…
A lot of what I’ve done has been at a studio in a small town about an hr out of Nashville, TN. A great friend of mine who was a part of the recording process has a wonderful home studio tucked away up on a hill and I spent the majority of the writing, tracking, and production process there. All the editing was done in Nashville.
A lot of what I created was organically written. I built a lot of the sounds and audio imaging from scratch, and there was a lot of vulnerability and trial and error along the way. It was a comedic process at times, but very rewarding.
The record is still in post production, but along with that, I am co-writing with a few different music producers in town to broaden my music inventory.
How do you stay focused and balance creating with life..
It can be difficult, especially if you’re traveling or promoting another project. I think it’s natural to go through stretches of time where you have creative dry spells but I feel like in those particular times, you learn a lot and use that time to grow. You never advance in your knowledge if you can’t step away, critique and advance from what you’ve already accomplished.
As far as life, It can be hard at times with traveling and feeling lonely, but I’m learning to find a balance.
Music Advise that matters..
Be vulnerable with yourself when you create. Stay out of your head and don’t pay attention to what other people may think of you. Will every idea you try be brilliant? No. But if you can’t allow yourself to have to relationship with your craft, like any relationship, you won’t grow. Be okay with trying things that may not work.
I live in…
I am from Los Angeles, which is a pretty free and liberal city when it comes to art and entertainment. But I’ve been living in Nashville over the last few years, and even though a lot of Nashville has been routed in Country music for many years, it’s starting to evolve. It’s a musicians town, and I think people are starting to wake up to the variety the city really has to offer. It’s truly exciting to watch unfold.
