2018 Countdown | Molly Tentarelli

Atlanta Records head A&R cat Brian Hurst seeks quality at every turn. He carefully selects only the finest, and this year he added another gem to the collection. Molly Tentarelli caught attention on tour with Jarrod Lawson, yet back home in Portland she was busy creating her debut album. Sharing the songs with her godfather, Mark Hudson, the game was on. Together they connected with the likes of Will Lee, Vinnie Colaiuta, Dave Weckl, Del Atkins, Pedrito Martinez, Oli Rockberger, Gregg Bissonette, Timothy B. Schmit, Ricky Z, Jason Sutter, Jim Cox, Anton Fig, Lelan Sklar, and Chris Botti. Now that’s a lineup - Molly’s self titled debut is a wonderful collection of songs that fully express her style.
