Molly Venter

molly-ventnerWith a strong voice the texture of fine suede, this Austin-based folksinger puts prose to music, sung strong and sweet with a great vibrato, straight from the heart.

Venter accompanies herself on rhythmic acoustic guitar, evoking echoes of Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell and Tracy Chapman—with a gritty edge and visceral intensity. Lyrics about self–awareness, regret, forgiveness and love: soul searching with a musical map. Great backup on bass guitar in “Afraid You Don’t Know” by Ned Evett and drums by James Fisher in “Walking Backwards.”—Corinne Brown
