LISTEN TO RECENT WORLD CAFE SESSION HERE
SIDE B “YOUR PARTY” HERE
Today Texan chanteuse Molly Burch, compared to Golden Era Hollywood starlets like Judy Garland and Loretta Young (FADER) releases her new 7” entitled Ballads via Captured Tracks. This is her first release since her wildly successful 2018 album, First Flower. Burch explains, “A-Side ‘Only One’ was recorded at the same time as First Flower, but it didn’t quite make sense on the album. Both this and the B-side ‘Your Party’ fit together in a nice way, I think. I decided to call the 7” Ballads as an homage to the powerful female vocalists I idolized growing up. Seems sort of classic. Both songs really embody what I love to do – sing with emotion, and drama, and romance, taking as much time as I need.”
Earlier this week Burch was on NPR’s World Cafe playing three of her warm, powerful hits. NPR comments on her performance saying, “I don’t know how to describe what the word smoky means in singing, but I think you know it when you hear it. My guest, Molly Burch has it in spades.”
US tour dates including LA, NY, Washington DC, and more.
