Go behind the scenes in Molly Burch‘s new video “Try”. Filmed in Texas’ vibrant Dripping Springs, director Alex Mechanik showcases Molly in her element while recording her debut full length album Please Be Mine, out February 17 on Captured Tracks. “Try” debuted over at Uprox.
Come March, Molly sets out on her first lengthy North American tour with Ought’s Tim Darcy. Highlights include several performances at this year’s SXSW festivities, Brooklyn’s Union Pool, Chicago, D.C. and more. See below for a full list of dates.
Growing up in LA with a writer/producer father and a casting director mother, Burch’s childhood was filled with old Hollywood musicals and the sounds of Patsy Cline, Billie Holiday and Nina Simone. After finding her voice in adolescence, Burch packed up to study Jazz Vocal Performance in Asheville.
Molly’s timeless voice is the first thing you’ll notice on Please Be Mine. It’s smoky, with an incredible range, effortlessly evocative of her early influences. After relocating to Austin after college, Burch began to write her own music in earnest, with the lovelorn Everly Brothers and Sam Cooke as her songwriting guides. Burch and boyfriend Dailey Toliver connected with Dan Duszynski of Cross Record, and they recorded all the songs on Please Be Mine at his idyllic studio in Dripping Springs, TX.
