Join us for this Friday’s Songwriters in Round with Molly Kollier, Edgling, and Ella Running-Rabbit!

Molly Kollier:

Molly Kollier’s music has travelled through the desert and the Rocky Mountains to become what it is today. Drawing influence from strong and intelligent songstresses such as Jenny Lewis, Regina Spektor, and Emmylou Harris, her music swings the pendulum back and forth between country-influenced folk and sultry jazz, and her lyrics always keep listeners on their feet. Molly Kollier is like a bird and a lion at the same time; her delicate falsetto quickly crescendo’s into heartbroken belting. Come to one of her shows to experience the spicy sweetness of this desert queen’s original songs.

Edgling:

One free folk of the forest, edgling is a singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist. Leitmotif of nature, human experience, ancient traditions, spirituality, and the broad spectrum of heightened change in the world…Born of the dew, traveling heart. Followed many paths, came to the realization of a different path… closer to the ancient ways.
