Molly Tuttle knew from the time she was 4 that she wanted music to be a big part of her life. Now based in Nashville, this young, incredibly talented and much-awarded musician grew up in a musical household and tried a few different instruments, including fiddle, before realizing that guitar was the instrument that spoke most directly to her. By the time she was 11, she was making music with friends in the local pizza joint, and a few years after that, she started taking songwriting classes. That’s where she learned about Bill Monroe, Hazel Dickens, Gillian Welch, Bob Dylan, and Joni Mitchell and that’s also where she started discovering her own voice as a songwriter.
In late March of 2019, she came by the studios of Beehive Productions in Saranac Lake, NY to share some thoughts about her musical history and also to share some music from her debut full-length album, When You’re Ready.
