Who is Momma Molasses
This week, I had the pleasure of speaking with country music artist Ella Patrick (Momma Molasses). We have a delightful conversation about music, roots, fun stories, and life during COVID as an artist. Patrick has spent the majority of her life in the world of music. She was born and raised in North Carolina and just a couple years ago moved to Bristol, Tennesse, the Birthplace of Country Music.
From her Facebook Page:
“Momma Molasses’ music interlaces; Classic Country, Folk, Piedmont Blues, Soul, Swing, Bluegrass, and Old-Time which blend into a uniquely timeless sound. Harnessing her rolling contralto voice which scales over homespun finger-picked guitar, her sound is warm, rich, and passionate, with songs that embrace, and captivate listeners, soothing well warn hearts with vulnerable lyricism”
Her music has been likened by listeners to Patsy Cline, “Mother” Maybelle Carter, early (pre-rock n’ roll) Janis Joplin.
Prepare yourselves for an energetic and fun-loving chat with the one and only Momma Molasses!
