Molly Moore made the move to Los Angeles since our last feature. Her songs “Ready For Love” and “Hollow” were picked up and transformed into uncharacteristic EDM successes by Canadian Felix Cartal and veteran Dutch duo Dubvision. She signed with manager Ric Aliberte (Billy Idol, KISS), and has worked with a variety of producers, mainly with Steve Dresser (signed to songwriter/producer Busbee & BMG) to help hone her sound. Molly has been compared to the 90’s singers like Suzanne Vega, Joan Osborne and Lisa Loeb. Molly Moore and Brandyn Burnette will perform a free showcase for BMI on Monday, March 2, 2015.
