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.
While her first love was clearly music – she started writing original songs around age four – she also had a love of ballet and began her formal training at the age of seven. Eventually she attended an Arts Magnet High School in Portland, Oregon, spending half the day studying music and dance, leaving for contract work in Los Angeles when it came.
Following extensive guest and background vocal work for established artists like Ozzy Osbourne, Molly traveled the world as a background vocalist for Jarrod Lawson. While she visited 15+ countries in two years of touring, she also began recording her first album with her godfather, 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 debut album was released with Atlanta/Ropeadope Records on February 23, 2018.
