Melisande “Molly” Pope is a Brooklyn-based songwriter with a gentle voice and an ear for wistful lullabies and intricate instrumental textures. Raised by a community of classical musicians in Boston, Molly spent her early years absorbed in gloomy piano chords, Guitar Hero, and Garage Band. She is also lead guitarist of cheerful indie folk-rock quintet Yankee & the Foreigners and of mellow retro-rock group White Elephant. After graduating from Berklee College of Music in 2018 and working as a jingle-writer in Los Angeles for several months, Molly decided to change directions and commit to her passion project, and to New York City. She works as a nanny during the week, and spends her weekends traveling the east coast by bus with a guitar on her back, playing new solo material in as many cities as possible.
