A Personal message from Dark Eyed Molly CEO & Cofounder, Eric Moore:

Hi there,
We logged a lot of miles on the road of American music in 2012. The road took us to lots of gigs and kept us in school. From a friendship founded on folk, Jo and I meandered down the road of 20th century American music.

We spun through decades and time zones; roaring in the twenties with Bessie Smith in Philadelphia and we struck it up real good a little later with Memphis Minnie. The road took us out to wartime Kansas City, too. Big Joe Turner sends his best.

Swing was in full swing, eh; and Duke Ellington was even touring with Django Reinhardt. Jonas Summers our guitar player knows Django really well. Smokes the same cigarettes… we took it all in… in Chicago we got our mojo working with Muddy Waters, Koko Taylor and Little Walter.
(by that time, we had already picked up our friend Elrod on harmonica). Shoot, we found ourselves sounding almost modern when - whoah! - Dark Eyed Molly sounds really good… and really different. We’ve also taken time to develop our songwriting, so that’s another new thing.

We’re growing real fast, but we can still hear those Memphis church bells and the yinzers. We haven’t left home. Our home just feels a little bit bigger. Our expanded sound & songbook is an uptempo blues and swing that keeps us one foot on the dance floor and the other in the dirt. ‘Cause we’re following our passion, and chasing our kids…

Hope to see you out there,
