„SONGS & WHISPERS“ – Circuit 10/2015


MOLLY CONRAD (USA)
www.mollyconradmusic.com
Molly Conrad was born and raised in Iowa, heavily involved in theatre, but recently moved to Nashville,
TN to pursue her passion in singing and songwriting. She has written over 70 songs, toured the midwest to celebrate the release of her studio album “One-sided”, and is preparing for an EP release and southeast tour. After having played at over 50 venues in the U.S., Conrad is stoked to travel overseas for the first time and share her music with an entirely new audience in October. Her sound has been described as “refreshing” and “enchanting”; she continues to find new ways to express her feelings, emotions and humor.

------------------------------- German version ------------------------------

Geboren und aufgewachsen in Iowa war Molly Conrad lange in das örtliche Theater eingebunden, bevor sie sich schließlich dazu entschied in Nashville ihre Leidenschaft für Gesang und Kompositionen zu verfolgen. Mit über 70 eigenen Songs und ihrem Studioalbum „One-sided“ bereiste Conrad den mittleren Westen. Musikalisch hat sich Conrad puristischem Folk-Pop verschreiben, der vor allem ihre hinreißende Stimme zum Ausdruck bringt und den Fokus auf ihre geistreichen Texte legt.
Nun bereitet sie sich darauf vor, ihre Musik zum ersten Mal über den Ozean zu einem ganz neuen Publikum zu bringen; immer auf der Suche nach neuen Wegen, ihre Gefühle und ihren Humor zum Ausdruck zu bringen.

Influences: Ingrid Michaelson, Regina Spektor, Radiohead
 


“Molly Conrad’s voice and sensibility stand out clearly from the crowd.
Self-aware without being self-conscious, she does exactly what the audience doesn’t expect. She consistently wins the listener over with what might be called “worldly naiveté.” Wide-eyed and wise beyond her years, you will find her haunting and charming.” -Steve Goodie, Bluebird Café, Nashville TN

“Molly has a unique sound with a beautiful voice. Combine that with her witty songwriting, and you’ve got a wonderful evening out.” -Eileen Eitrheim, Galvin Fine Arts Center, Davenport IA

KING OF THE TRAMPS (USA)

King Of The Tramps is an original roots-rock group from Auburn, Iowa, USA, whose sound calls upon influences from modern roots rock, rhythm and blues, rock and southern, country rock. Their sound has been described as “Whiskey Gospel” and “Midwestern Roots Rock” by critics. The band has released three albums of original music, which have received great reviews and radio play throughout the US and Europe. “Good People” in 2011, “Wicked Mountain” in 2013, and “Joyful Noise” in 2014. Their music has a loose, raggedy, rootsy, bluesy feel to it and will appeal to lovers of Roots, Blues, Southern Rock and Alt- Country music styles. Band members include; Todd Partridge – Guitar and Vocals, Adam Audlehelm – Keyboards, Ryan Aum – Percussion and Ryan McAlister – Bass. 
The King Of The Tramps live show is a foot stompin’, hand clappin’ rock and roll gospel, with plenty of crowd participation, whether in front of a small house concert, or the biggest stage.

------------------------------- German version -----------------------------King of the Tramps sind eine fünfköpfige Band aus Iowa. Mit einer Mischung aus Blues, Roots und Country Rock kreieren sie einen Sound, den die Kritiker als „Whiskey Gospel“ bezeichnen und der den Hörer in die Mitte der siebziger Jahre versetzt. Sing-a-longs und von Herzen kommende Balladen laden zum Mitsingen und Mitklatschen ein und begeistern sowohl auf großen Festivalbühnen, als auch in intimer Wohnzimmeratmosphäre. Neben leichter Kost, wie Lieder über die Liebe oder das Wandern beschäftigen sie sich nicht selten auch mit ernsteren Themen wie dem Klimawandel, der Rolle von Geld und Politik im Krieg oder dem Tod eines unbewaffneten Jugendlichen durch einen Polizisten.
Im Gepäck haben King of the Tramps drei bisher veröffentlichte Alben: “Good People” (2011) “Wicked Mountain” (2013) und “Joyful Noise” (2014).
