From her history-making win for Guitarist of the Year at the 2017 IBMA Awards to 1M streams and counting on Spotify, all signs indicate that MOLLY TUTTLE is the next in a line of storied performers like Vince Gill and Alison Krauss who used their consummate musicianship to break boundaries in bluegrass music and blossom into mainstream performing artists, appealing to fans in country, Americana and pop.
On her debut solo EP RISE, Molly reveals the scope of her diverse influences. Produced by Kai Welch (Abigail Washburn, Bobby Bare, Jr., the Greencards), the seven-song collection builds a bridge from bluegrass to Americana as Molly breaks free without breaking ties, singing and exploring what her six-string acoustic guitar can do.
In some circles she is the poster child for what Spotify considers “Indie Bluegrass” as the dominant streaming platform chose to feature her on their popular playlist of the same name, but they also added her tracks “Save This Heart” and “Lightning in a Jar” to two influential mainstream Americana playlists: Acoustic Love and Afternoon Acoustic.
