With her lilting and lucid voice, Molly Tuttle speaks softly, but when she creates music that is truly original and unmistakably hers, her quietness turns charmingly bold as her rock-solid bluegrass songs take on a brash, but beautiful originality. A virtuoso multi-instrumentalist and award winning songwriter with a distinctive voice, Molly has turned the heads of even the most seasoned industry professionals. She began performing on stage when she was 11, and recorded her first album, The Old Apple Tree, at age 13. Molly has appeared on A Prairie Home Companion, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, was featured on the cover of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine, won first place in the prestigious Chris Austin Songwriting Competition at Merlefest and last fall received a Momentum Award from the International Bluegrass Music Association in the instrumentalist category. This year, she is nominated for 3 IBMA Awards, earning her the distinction of being the first female to be nominated in the Guitar Player of the Year. Molly’s lovely voice, impeccable guitar playing, and sensitive song writing make her a star on the rise.
"....Molly Tuttle....sings with the gentle authority of Gillian Welch, yet plays astoundingly fleet flat-picking guitar like Chet Atkins on superdrive. -Paul Zollo, American Songwriter Magazine
