Molly Durnin: Born To Play
About Molly Durnin
Stories in Sound
Molly Durnin is a singer-guitarist with an engaging stage presence. She has been performing non-stop as a full-time musician for ten years, making her a rarity among female artists. She has garnered accolades as a singer-songwriter due to the breadth and depth of her writing, and she has paid her dues as a cover artist at countless venues and watering holes across the U.S.
Molly’s songs draw from the heart of Americana – country, blues and folk yet every song is uniquely hers. Her songs are clever and amusing, honest and hard-hitting, tender and heartfelt. Everyone agrees “she has that special ability to take you there.” Armed with a battered Breedlove guitar and a treasure trove of memorable choruses, she’s got everything she needs to rock the house.
A native of the Northeast, Molly has lived in both the South and the Midwest. Raised in rural NY, she began singing in the “518” music scene of the Capital Region, where she released her debut CD entitled Run in 2012.
Molly has earned praise for her original songs at the renowned folk venue Caffe Lena in Saratoga Springs, NY. She has been both a street singer at the City Market in Charleston, SC, and a hard working mainstay at honky-tonks throughout the Quad Cities of Iowa and Illinois.
Molly is currently living in Charleston, SC with her two Siberian Huskies, where she sings at local hot spots, both as a solo act and with backup, performs her original music at listening venues, and tours nationally on a seasonal basis.

The Davenport, Iowa singer/songwriter has developed a singular, percussive style on her battered Breedlove, proving they both have staying power. “My guitar is my identity,” she says unabashedly. “It gives my poetry a melody.”
