The Live (Mostly) Demos (available at shows only)



Sassy Molasses' Moriah Haven Lawson is known to put the sass in Grasshopper Juice. The mandolin virtuoso and record label "intern" has played with the likes of Wonky Tonk, Billy Wallace and the Virginia Blues, family bluegrass act Lawson Reunion, and occasionally gigs with Chick Pimp, Coke Dealer at a Bar.

Moriah performed solo and with three bands at the 2009 AYE Music & Art Festival. She has shared a stage with such notables as Rachel Goodrich, Peter Rowan, Jessica Lea Mayfield, The Macpodz, The Rumpke Mountain Boys, and The Pomegranates.

Now, she has joined forces with Thom Curran (Formerly of the Atriums) on bass, and Michael J. Hamilton (The Flux Capacitors, Vaudeville Freud) on drums to folk up your lonely little world.

Culling out every influence they've hidden in their delicious nooks & crannies, they truly create something unique, yet, oddly familiar. Grabbing inspiration out of every genre spanning from country blues, Patsy Cline, funk, bluegrass, to even a tad bit o' metal, composed with a twisted pop sensibility. Teaming all that with Moriah's steamy, smarmy lyrics creates one hot, delicious mess you won't soon forget.

The Sassy Molasses "4 Ep's Project" is in its developmental stages. Lawson Reunion's sophomore release is currently in post-production, Lawson contributing Vocals and Mandolin.

"On mandolin, Moriah Lawson had my “musician crush” vote for the night. Amazing to watch. Barefoot, with brown straight, short hair hanging in her face, her fingers move in a mad blur, and she’s the real thing." - C.A. MacConnell, CityBeat
