Molly Sarlé of Mountain Man has been working on her solo record for a little while and it’s finally out! The beautiful Karaoke Angel is the Santa Cruz, CA’s native debut album. During our conversation on Basic Folk, Molly talks about her family and where music was in her life growing up. We learn that she L O V E S musical theater and was in several productions in high school. She also talks about the tale of Mountain Man’s origins and how she, an introvert, was approached by the very outgoing Amelia Meath, who insisted Sarle teach her the song she was singing. The incredible harmonies of Mountain Man, however, are different from the ones we find on Molly’s solo work, which was recorded in a church. We dig into a few very interesting topics like religion! sex! and cats!
