Make room, Roches and Wailin' Jennys, Red Molly has earned a place among
the elite female trios - John Platt, WFUV
If one word describes the new Red Molly CD, Light in the Sky, that word
is joyous. Once again, with the
tick-tight arrangements, crystalline
vocals and caramel harmonies that the Boston Globe praised, Red Molly
creates an album with gorgeous a cappella ballads, bluegrass-tinged folk
and a touch of jazzy western swing, all done up in Red Molly's trademark
three-part harmonies, signature dobro licks and inventive arrangements. The
title sets the theme for the 14 tracks: optimism, joy, and excitement for
Red Molly knows about optimism and joy. The band's fans, referred to as "RedHeads", have always responded to the sense that the band is a group of friends, sharing songs in their living room. That's exactly how it felt in 2004 when the original members of the band, Laurie and Abbie sat around a campfire at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, singing and talking about their favorite songwriters. Knowing they had stumbled into something extraordinary, they formed Red Molly and spent the next seven years on the road. Red Molly is Laurie MacAllister (guitar, banjo, bass), Abbie Gardner (dobro, guitar) and the newest member Molly Venter.
Since its release in October 2011, Light in the Sky has climbed up the Americana charts and is now at number 10!
