What other artists & writers have to say about Molly...
"ive always prefered to listen to molly's records more than anybody else's in our little nervous wreck family.
they just have this witchy mysterious vibe to them that sounds so great when im cooking outside.
and with this batch of songs i really think molly has taken her art even further and opened her heart even wider.
you know its not easy to be a woman in this town or my band.
male songwriters think we know everything, i remember a particular night backstage listening to a male songwriter
giving molly a bunch of advice he probably shouldve been asking her for.....
she listened politely of course , and then she went out and let her music do the talking.
the guy had to follow her and it wasnt pretty.
with this album i feel like once again molly is proving that she lets her music do the talking.
good luck following this one fellas." ~ Todd Snider
“Molly Thomas is unfiltered ‘south.’ She is the feel and the sound of the southern United States. In an America where food chains,

"...As a writer, Thomas isn’t about dressing her messages up; she’s about carving down to the essence of the matter at hand...

“Molly Thomas is no little lady, bemoaning her trials and tribulations at the hands of the wrong kind of man. There's a streak of defiance a mile wide in her voice and, as a writer, she kicks where it hurts and with unerring accuracy.”
Michael Mee - The Hawick News/UKnetrhythms.com
"The album has a slightly gauzy sound, but it's not the production haze often used to cover up the limitations of weak vocalists. It's more the throwback resonance of projects like last year's Jack White-Loretta Lynn album."
Lawrence Specker - Mobile Register
"Thomas was most effective, raising her voice in hymn-like fashion to stun the audience into reverential silence as songs from her "Shoot the Sky" recording trippingly bounced around the interior walls of the historic building. A seemingly natural musician, Thomas, who began playing violin at age 6, can switch from piano to guitar to violin, writing and producing her compositions into a galvanizing form."
