"NY Entertainer of the Week- Molly Adele Brown"

Want to know what it’s like for an up and coming country star pursuing her dream in the Big Apple? She has a new single and video out titled, “Weather the Storm” and a new album being released soon. Take a look at singer/songwriter Molly Brown.


upfrontNY: What’s it like pursuing country music in New York? Would you consider a move to Nashville?

Molly Adele Brown: I grew up in New York, just outside of the city, so it was a natural progression for me to migrate into the city to pursue my music. I love living and working there! I teamed up with songwriters Nefertiti Jones and Jimi Bones two years ago and jumped into the New York City grind. There is a different pace in New York and it’s in my blood. Last summer I went into the studio with fellow performer Nicole Trubish and along with JonesBones Productions we wrote, produced and mastered a song in less than 7 days – talk about a whirlwind! That being said it is a little more difficult to reach the country audience from New York. Nashville is the heart of country music and I can certainly see myself moving down there but for now I have the best of both worlds. I go down to Nashville about once a month to meet with different writers and producers while still keeping my main home base in New York.



upfrontNY: I know you have a love for Luke Bryan. If you could duet with him which song would you choose?

Molly Adele Brown: It would be fun to do a classic country duet with him like “Jackson” by Johnny Cash & June Carter or “Islands in the Stream” by Dolly Parton & Kenny Rogers but honestly I would be content onstage dancing alongside Luke Bryan to “Country Girl Shake it for Me”! That is one of my favorites! He is a true performer that has the ability to set the tone no matter who the audience or where the venue. He engages his audience making every show an experience, you feel like you are with him at a party!



upfrontNY: Is “Weather the Storm” based on a true story?

Molly Adele Brown: “Weather the Storm” is based on every serviceman and woman’s story, not one specific story. I just feel like we can’t say “Thank You” enough to the people who put their lives on the line every day to defend our freedom. The inspiration for this song came one evening while I was watching news coverage on yet another incident overseas that involved the tragic loss of life and I just kept thinking “Everything seemed so simple back in the day”. That one line was what crafted the rest of the song.



upfrontNY: Can you tell us about your latest LP album, “Red, White and Booze”.

Molly Adele Brown: “Red, White and Booze” was the first album that I produced with JonesBones Productions. Every song was co-written with Nefertiti Jones and Jimi Bones. The collaboration started while I was still in college and they loved and encouraged that spunky side of me. We carefully crafted 4 songs that we thought would speak to the young, college crowd that I was a part of. “Chug” is a great college anthem, it basically talks about getting ready for a frat party! Now that I am post-college I am looking at my brand a little differently. I’m still trying to keep my “fun-loving, spunky, party vibe” while also looking to grow into a mature artist. It’s exciting and a little scary at the same time.



upfrontNY: What can we expect from your next album?

Molly Adele Brown: My next album is going to be a compilation of 6 songs; some new, some re-mastered, with a fun unexpected cover thrown in to mix things up. Along with my JonesBones collaborations I have written a new song with Jonathon Edwards and Mike Phares out of Nashville. That song is called “Perfectly Lonely” and is about being content with where you are in life as it relates to relationships. That is definitely a reflection of me growing up! This album is being produced in Nashville so it’s got even more of a country flare, which I love. Recording down there has given me a better insight into the direction of “new school” country music. All in all, I’m really excited about this project and the direction that I’m heading. As I said earlier, I’m looking to keep my brand intact as I take it to the next level. I continue to grow and mature as an artist every day.



upfrontNY: You have a love for coffee shops, is there any one in particular in NYC that you would recommend to someone visiting the city?

Molly Adele Brown: I LOVE COFFEE!! Yes, I am sipping a dark roast as I answer these questions!! There are plenty of great, local coffee shops in New York but I have to say my favorite is Dtut. What I love about this spot is that it has the most cozy feel with great music, no headphones needed (unless of course I am listening to new mixes or searching new artists). Another secret about this spot is that after 5:00 pm it turns into a bar! After working on your computer all day you don’t have to go far to start your Happy Hour, how can you beat that??


upfrontNY: What do you believe separates you from other country performers when you’re on stage?

Molly Adele Brown: I believe that one of my strengths is my stage presence. I LOVE performing and being on stage, it is so much fun. I am not afraid to take a risk and I am not afraid to be imperfect. While I take my music and my career very seriously, I work hard on it every day, I don’t take myself that seriously. I’m a little quirky and my goal is for my audience to have fun along with me. I’m also very driven and passionate about what I do, that fire inside keeps me going no matter what challenges are in front of me and I think that translates to my live performances.



upfrontNY: When you aren’t singing or writing songs what do you like to do?

Molly Adele Brown: I love to ski, both on the slopes and on the water! When I was 4 years old my Dad put me on little pink, plastic skis and I was attached to a harness while he skied behind me. I was hooked and was soon bombing down the slopes of Mt. Snow, Vermont on my own. A year or two later he bought a small set of water skis, basically the size of large planks and I was up and going on the water. I remember how excited I was when I was finally able to “drop a ski” and slalom on one ski around the bay. Whether skiing down a mountain or across a body of water I love the feeling of moving fast with the wind in your face, it makes me happy!



upfrontNY: Who inspired you to pursue a career in music?

Molly Adele Brown: My Family! I grew up watching my parents grow their construction business from the ground up. I watched both my sisters pursue careers in what they love. I love to perform and was originally planning to pursue a career in the theatre, I was Broadway Bound! I am still a theater geek but while in college (and after a chance meeting with Nefertiti Jones) my country music career was born and I haven’t looked back. I know it sounds cliché but my family supported me and encouraged me to follow my dream, there was never a question of “What is your back up plan”? My Dad once said to me “If you have a back up plan then you won’t succeed – you just need to work hard and never give up”. I lost my Dad the summer I graduated from high school and those words have stayed with me ever since. He loved what he did and he made me realize that if you are doing something you love then you are successful in more ways than one.



upfrontNY: If you could compare your sound to any artist, who would it be?

Molly Adele Brown: I would say I’m a compilation of a few artists. Let’s say you take Kacey Musgraves personality, mix it with a dash of Miranda Lambert’s attitude and a pinch of Carrie Underwood’s heart, then you will get me! But more importantly I’m hoping to create my own sound that will speak to an audience so I can continue to do what I love….

"Chatting with Molly Adele Brown: Country Music and Luke Bryan"

Chatting with Molly Adele Brown: Country music and Luke Bryan SPECIAL
LISTEN | PRINT
BY MARKOS PAPADATOS AUG 2, 2016 IN MUSIC
Up-and-coming country singer Molly Adele Brown chatted with Digital Journal about her career, future plans, influences and Luke Bryan.
She is drawn to country music since it tells a story. "I love how each song takes you on a personal journey and gives you a beginning, middle and end. I am able to let out emotions and feelings through country music, not all genres of music give you that capability. To me that is what sets country music apart from other styles," she said.
On her plans for the future, Brown said, "I plan on shooting for the stars. My family has given me the strength to keep my head up and power through any struggles that come up with the life of being a professional artist. Right now, I am focusing on gathering a fan-base while I am writing original material. I find that if I set small goals each day before you know it you have accomplished that and even more. "
Her latest EP Red, White & Booze is available on iTunes. "This EP is a compilation of my first four full-mastered songs. This mini-album takes you on a journey through some of the best highs and lows of my life in the past few years. Now I am working on new material that I am looking to release in the new year," she said.
Brown's greatest musical influences range from Jimmy Buffett to Luke Bryan and reigning CMA "Female Vocalist of the Year" Miranda Lambert. "Growing up every Saturday my parrot-head parents would wake me up to the sounds of Jimmy Buffett blasting through the house. At the time I thought they were the craziest people to walk on earth but as I got older I began to appreciate the fun yet laid back feel that Jimmy manages to capture. As I explored the music world I was able to take influence from other artists such as Luke Bryan and Miranda Lambert," she explained.
Speaking of Luke Bryan, she listed him at the top of her list as her dream male duet choice. "I know we would crush a bottle of whiskey and tear down the house. He puts on a show that leaves you wanting to dance and it would be a blast to be up on the stage with him dancing my butt off," she said.
For her fans, she concluded, "Hang on tight its going to be a bumpy and thrilling ride. I have a passion and work ethic that no one can stop and know that in the long run it will all pay off."

"P’ville Singer Among Leaders in National Online Music Competition"

Molly Adele Brown has had a knack for getting noticed. Growing up in South Salem as the youngest of three girls in her household, Brown wasn’t afraid to stand up in front of her family and perform. It’s something that she learned to do naturally.

“When I was younger I was definitely the one that was looking for attention. That was me,” Brown said. “I grew up in a family of three sisters, so there was a lot of singing and dancing at home.”

Her love for performing led to dance lessons as a young child, then roles at the Lighthouse Youth Theater Company’s production of “A Chorus Line” and in “The Music Man” and “A Christmas Carol” at Westchester Broadway Theatre. Brown also participated extensively in theater at her high school, St. Luke’s in Connecticut.

As a teenager, she displayed her musical side by taking out her mother’s old guitar to play–before her mom bought her one of her own.

Brown, 21, a theater performance major at Wagner College in Staten Island who will be graduating this spring, has since added singing and songwriting to her repertoire.

The latest step forward for the country music lover was her decision last fall to enter a new national online music competition called Bands4Good Challenge, a North Carolina-based program that looks to help aspiring artists further their careers while raising money for children’s music programs across the United States.

The competition requires contestants to submit a sample of their work to be judged by a panel of recording industry professionals ranging from producers to singer/songwriters. Brown was one of 12 finalists selected in the Adult Open Division.

Scoring for the finalists, which concludes on Wednesday, consists of a combination of judges’ evaluation, online public votes and monetary donations by the public made to the charity of a contestant’s choice.

Brown, the daughter of Renee and Charles Brown, founders of the Armonk general contracting firm C.W. Brown, said when she learned of the competition it sounded exciting and a good way for more people to listen to her music. But it also was in line with her mission of having her music help others. She chose to benefit Little Kids Rock, a New Jersey organization that partners with public school districts in mainly disadvantaged areas to bring music programs to children.

“When I was younger I worked really hard to make it a point to help out others and I am happy to see how I can still keep giving back while doing what I love,” said Brown, whose family downsized and moved to Pleasantville after her father passed away a few years ago.

At the end of last week, Brown was sitting in third place. The winner receives career development and coaching, recording studio sessions, performance opportunities and introductions to industry professionals.

Regardless of what happens with the competition, Brown may have received her biggest break during a college internship at the Casting House in Manhattan. Her mentor, whose husband is in the music industry, had a conversation with her about what she wanted to do after school.

When Brown told her about her musical aspirations, she was asked why she wasn’t writing her own music. That was the impetus for Brown to start writing her own lyrics, many of them about her own feelings and experiences, which can be an intimidating process, she said.

The couple began writing music to accompany some of her lyrics, which has helped Brown to refine her sound. So far she has a full book of lyrics and has finished recording five songs.

“It’s all about making connections in this business and I just was fortunate to have this one,” said Brown, who started enjoying country music by listening to Luke Bryan, Kacey Musgraves and Carrie Underwood.

Sometime after graduation, Brown hopes to make more connections by heading to Nashville and being part of the scene in the country music capital.

She also intends to keep as many options available by keeping her eye out for additional theater roles.

“I’ve been very, very lucky in that I’ve been able to do what I love to do and go at it full throttle,” she said.

Bio

Meet Molly Adele Brown, the 23-year-old blue-eyed, Country singer-songwriter, who loves her red cowboy boots and breathes country music. She has a four-door Dodge Ram red pickup truck and can be seen driving through the city streets blasting country music on any given day.
Originally from Westchester, New York, Molly graduated top of the Theater Performance program at Wagner College, and has since been training in Manhattan. She has had the pleasure of studying many different acting techniques, ranging from vocal technique and song writing to film acting and musical theater performance. Molly believes there is always more to learn, and she loves the challenge of taking on something new.
In the spring of 2014, Molly met Guitarist/ Songwriter Jimi K Bones (Joan Jett, Blondie, Enrique Iglesias, MNF) and Songwriter / Casting Director Nefertiti Jones (Lilith Fair, Electric Purgatory, House Casting), along with their partner Brian McGee (Rolling Stones, Cyndi Lauper, MNF). They knew immediately that it was a match made in heaven. The three of them saw the power and passion Molly had for country music and were able to help Molly find her own unique sound!
Molly has an amazing sense of humor that comes through in her lyrics, demonstrating the fun of being a carefree girl in her twenties. This is definitely true of her songs, “Chug” and “Mr. Right.” But, Molly holds nothing back while singing “In Time”, a heartbreaking ballad where she shares the intimate details of the sudden loss of her father in 2011.
While writing new music, Molly has been involved in country-wide competitions. She is currently a top 50 semi-finalist in the 2015 NASH Next competition. Additionally, her song “Mr. Right” landed her the runner-up status in the “Fan Favorite” category for the Bands4Good Competition. This competition has helped to raise money for charities while popularizing music from up-and-coming artists. She was featured in The Examiner on-line issue in January 2015 and The Westchester Press in 2014.
Her latest bar anthem, “#SummerSundays”, written in honor of the infamous Boardy Barn, debuted on WRIV radio station and Boardy Barn this past summer. The entire song was written and produced in 7 days.
