Sun 1 September 2019 - 7.30pm

Molly Sarlé, one-third of revered Appalachian folk trio Mountain Man, plays The Band Room direct from the End of the Road Festival in Wiltshire, en route for Scotland...

From the cliffs of Big Sur to the North Carolina backwoods – Molly Sarlé brings open-hearted, unflinching songwriting perfect for late-night karaoke comedowns, plaintive morning walks, and conjuring the spirit world. West Coast incantations with a warm, Appalachian glow.

Her debut LP (due out in 2019) is a collection of songs by a woman who was born understanding that her ability to feel – deeply and without shame – is her greatest strength. It is the result of a free and open-hearted devotion to the search for passion, and the complete, unwavering depiction of truth. Molly’s songs observe their own kind of internal logic, always a few steps behind or ahead of where you expect them to be – occasionally funny, always uncannily real.

The work on her upcoming album began in a trailer on a the pacific coast and continued with stints in Los Angeles and Durham, NC. Recorded in a church-turned-recording studio in Woodstock, NY, a minimal but carefully assembled palette of guitar, bass, and percussion form the foundation: an orchestra of unrecognizable atmospherics bounce off the high ceilings—but Molly’s delicate, expressive voice is always at the centre.
