10 questions with Molly-Anne

Bristol's fastest rising folk star Molly-Anne answers a few quick-fire questions

10 questions with Bristol folk musician Molly-Anne

Gloucestershire-born musician Molly-Anne has firmly established herself on the Bristol circuit in the past year, fusing elements of country, folk, indie and soul to create her own incredibly moreish sound.

Molly-Anne’s simultaneously sweet yet grown up vocals are accompanied by her own acoustic guitar and harmonica. Drawing on her own experiences, Molly-Anne pens deeply personal lyrics, which can be heard in the intimate delivery of her vocals and vocables.

Nitelife debuted her brilliant demo track Young Fever last year, which has since received airplay on BBC Introducing, and 2018 has seen her gigging relentlessly across the South West. You can catch her this month supporting Noble Jacks at The Louisiana.

Those questions

1.) What have you learned today?
Today I learnt that eggs are not classed as dairy, they are classed as poultry. Weird huh?

2.) Favourite track of all time?
Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright – Bob Dylan.

3.) It’s 3am and the party is winding down, what track do you play to get everyone going again?
Original Nuttah – Shy FX. A Bristol anthem!

4.) Who are your top three acts right now?
Laura Marling, Philippa Hanna and Miranda Lambert.

5.) If you couldn’t work in music, what would you be doing instead?
I’m a yoga teacher in training and a barista during the day. My dream is to tour my music internationally, but I’d settle for making wicked coffees and teaching yoga if that doesn’t happen.

6.) What was the last book you read?
The Bhagavad Gita, to further my spiritual education!

7.) Favourite thing on TV?
The Assassination of Gianni Versace. I very naughtily skipped ahead to episode seven, even though we’re only up to episode two in the UK. I’m such a binge-watcher if I get hooked on a good programme, possibly a little out of control…

8.) Are you afraid of anything?
I’m absolutely terrified of spiders and that horrid feeling you get if your teeth rub together. Ewww!

I was in an all-female punk band when I was 13, we rocked.

9.) Tell us something people don’t know about you…
I was in an all-female punk band when I was 13, we rocked.

10.) What are you doing tomorrow?
I’m off to see The Electric Swing Circus live. Should be a great show.
