What happens when a brilliant upcoming musician raised on Bluegrass takes on a Rancid cover?
Make sure to pay attention to her lead guitar work at about 2:25
real country went underground. It doesn't need saving. To tell you the truth, even Dale Watson and his award show seems phony to me.
edit but yeah she can play.
Molly Tuttle is incredible! Lots of her vids show close-ups of her hands, and she’s just amazing!
I'm on board.
First heard this young lady earlier in the year, both albums superb and hope next one released at the end of August is just as good. A huge talent
Whats up with those vocals ???
My take is she is ok.....needs a legit producer in the worst way
Sounded great to me. Opinions vary.
No, just no...
I like that song, but I'm not sure it's "country", but country music doesn't need saving anyway...
Her cross picking is amazing.
She's far from upcoming! She's been around for quite some time now and is well-established in the Bluegrass scene.
She's more bluegrass than anything, so sadly I don't think she's going to 'save" country music.
With that said, Molly Tuttle is one of the most amazing flat pickers alive today.
She's very good and I like her a lot.
She's fairly versatile with her material selection.
Her voice could use some work.
I don't really consider her "Country."
I like Billy Strings a lot, too.
I'm glad they're both out there kickin' things up!
(BTW, check out Tank and the Bangals on ACL. Awesome!)
Country music doesn't need saving. Its demise has been pointed to each time there has been a generation of artists being left behind by the next. There are plenty of "new" performers but they aren't really new. They're just recently being promoted, after attracting a following. That's different from the past where the following came from promotion. Thank YouTube for that. With money behind them, their music and videos have the sound and look of being professionally produced. I like Molly Tuttle. I like her style, modern bluegrass. (Where are the people saying bluegrass is dead?) Olympia sounds a little like a throwback to acoustic music of the '70s. Maybe that's why I like it. I wish I could play that well. Cross picking is impossible for me. I can manage a solo finger style, maybe even flat pick it, but to combine the solo simultaneously with the strumming makes my head explode. I listened for overdubbing and watching her play, it sounds to me like I'm listening to one guitar.
I'm a fan. I like the song. Olympia is a number by a female artist that could work as a male vocal. I could probably play it if I slowed it down a drop and played it finger style. That would still be a heluva a number to learn. It'll be my first download tonight.
Yeah very nice, that lady got game.
I like her record from last year. More contemporary/produced than you might think .
Her and Billy Strings get a lot of folks their own ages at their shows who don’t know or care about the Stanley Bros it Bill Monroe.
I cant get past the vocals.....hers arent great.....but i could probably learn to live with it on an artistic license kinda level.....
The backup vocals are horrible
Fingernails on blackboard bad...
I realize there is no big $$$ in music recording/sales anymore but.....damn....its almost as if they tried to make the backup vocals as bad as possible.....or worse than just 2 random people singing happy birthday.....idk ??
Id almost have to go see her live to confirm they were or werent trolling everyone.....lol
Nothing wrong with her music.
That song is in no way country music at all. Alt-something. But not country music.
We in the bluegrass community have been enjoying her for the last few years. Not lots of female flat pickers out there but Molly can go toe to toe with the best. Sings well too. Tremendously talented young woman.
I just read that the whole album was put together during the lock-down, and she did much of it herself at home.
