Meet Molly Brulé, a genre defying singer/songwriter, and registered nurse, from Somerville.
Molly’s music is emotional, at least it’s delivered that way. You can see that she feels every lyric, every note, in her performance, and hear it in her vocals. There’s a raw honesty in her sweet voice, that takes you to where she is going in a song. She grew up in the country (Vermont), but honed her skills in the city (Boston), so there are influences of all kinds of music in her songs. Her storytelling lyrics are pure country. Her voice is unpretentious and authentic, like a folk singer. Her melodies can be infectious like pop. Music was a part of her upbringing. Her father encouraged his children to learn instruments, and learn to appreciate artists like Fleetwood Mac, Joni Mitchell and James Taylor. She taught herself guitar, as a teenager and starting writing songs in college as an escape. Brulé sights her biggest influences today, as Maren Morris, Ingrid Michelson, Brandi Carlisle, Alison Krauss and Joni Mitchell.
