Riely OConnor & Molly B. Moon call both South Bend, Indiana and Apalachicola, Florida home, but they are very much “at home” on stages all over the Midwest, South and West. At each performance, they give the audience their unique blend of category-defying original songs. These originals are known for their powerful themes, insightful lyrics and wonderful melodies. From touching ballad to swinging blues, each song is imbued with wit and insight. On stage Riely & Molly deliver the goods with energy and dynamic stage presence.
Molly & Riely’s 2009 CD Who Knows When was included in “Best Albums of 2009” by NPR affiliate 88.1 WVPE’s popular radio program The Back Porch. A new album is in the works and their brand new song Apalachicola Bound was just released in May.
“The work you do over in High Springs is seriously what allows musicians to find lives in music. I think the industry needs more people who truly love what they do, because it shows ”
— Matthew Fowler
