    Visit Website

    Singer-songwriter Molly Holm has been an integral part of the Bay Area's sound for many years. She's an unconventional singer who draws from jazz, improvisation, and North Indian Raga (having studied with master vocalist Pandit Pran Nath)

    For almost a decade, Molly was a member of Bobby McFerrin's vocal ensemble, Voicestra, touring both nationally and internationally, and recording, too. She's collaborated with a diverse roster of artists, such as Terry Riley, Zakir Hussain, choreographer June Watanabe, and George Coates's Performance Works. She's also been influenced by Linda Tillery's African-American Roots Music.

    Molly's ears have always been wide-open. She's finally issued her debut recording "Permission", to wide acclaim. Everyone who's taken a class with her has given her five stars.
