Biography

Featured in Modern Drummer and Drumhead Magazine!

Singer-Songwriter Molly Tentarelli was born into a musical family; her father’s band was signed to Warner Bros. and Atlantic Records, while her mother was a recording artist for MCA Records. 

Molly started writing songs around age four. She grew up listening to artists such as Joni Mitchell, Steely Dan, Todd Rundgren, Laura Nyro and Rickie Lee Jones.

Following extensive guest and background vocal work for several established artists, Molly traveled the world as a background vocalist for Jarrod Lawson. While she visited 17+ countries in two years of touring, she also began recording her debut album with producer, Mark Hudson. 

Hudson’s belief in her music urged him to call in a few favors, and soon enough the likes of David Sanborn, Will Lee, Vinnie Colaiuta, Dave Weckl, Del Atkins, Pedrito Martinez, Oli Rockberger, Gregg Bissonette, Timothy B. Schmit, Ricky Z, Jason Sutter, Jim Cox, Anton Fig, Leland Sklar, and Chris Botti were all part of the project.

Molly Tentarelli’s self-titled debut album was released on Ropeadope/Atlanta Records in 2018. The album is an autobiographical musical journey of her life. It is about her love, her heartbreak, her sense of humor, her art, and most of all… her music. Molly is currently working on her second album. Stay tuned!
