Molly Sterling: Healing Through Music
On this week's episode, we bring you a very special conversation and performance with musicians very close to our hearts: Molly Sterling and Laura McCabe. Molly has just released her second single "Stripped Down" which you will hear performed live alongside her first single "Plain Static" as well as the song "I am but a Man."
Molly Sterling who is only 20 is a Dublin-based singer-songwriter and has been creating music for as long as she can remember. A wordsmith and songwriter by nature, her music is moulded by dark and affective lyrics, wrapped up in grounding piano riffs, and a vocal that is overflowing with exposed emotion - delivering every note and syllable with precise detail, giving the listener the feeling that it has been honed from somewhere buried and unfathomable. Laura is Molly's cellist as well as her manager and Artist Manager and Booking Agent with Frank Music MGMT.
We first saw Molly and Laura perform back in March 2017 at their very first gig together at the Cobblestone and have been following them closely ever since.
In our conversation, we cover the journey since that first gig, the experience of the band coming together and playing at festivals such as Other Voices, Hard Working Class Heroes and Vantastival among others, as well as Molly's own journey of facing her demons through music and healing through it.
You can catch Molly and Laura playing this Friday at Whelan's as part of the "We've Only Just Begun" Festival https://www.facebook.com/weveonlyjustbegunfest/ We will be there so come say hi. You can also catch us doing a live podcast during the Dublin Podcast Festival on October 4th at the Sound House where we will interview the poet and spoken word artist Stephen James Smith. We are on a double bill with the Pod Sqwod. Grab a ticket https://bit.ly/2Omz0s9
