Molly Grue Launches the Details of Discussion of an All New Project!

Molly Grue is an all new side project, in which she plans to release the soft rock side of her music spectrum of content. But before this project formed, she has since the 90's been releasing music on and off under another name Krista D. But for now, Molly Grue is the focus for now, even releasing a single titled "Anyway" with an EP to follow soon enough. Molly Grue herself goes into details about her Krista D side of music, along with her all new project as Molly Grue!

1. Please tell us about the history of your project.

Molly Grue is a new side project I've started in order to release the soft rock material from my songwriting catalog. I've been releasing music, on and off, since the 90's, under the name Krista D.

2. What's the origin of the project name?

Molly Grue is a character from the book/animated film The Last Unicorn by Peter S. Beagle.

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

I'm based out of Edmonton, Alberta but I'm not currently a huge part of this scene, I'm actually still more connected to the scene back in New Brunswick, where I'm from originally. A local Edmonton artist that I really enjoy music from is Jay Gilday.

4. How would you describe your style?

It's just straight forward female fronted rock and I tend to sound, unintentionally, like a 90's act, no matter which project I'm working on.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

I released an LP when I was around 16, another eclectic album called "Janes' World", in 2006, and an EP called "Look at me... I'm Krista D" late last year. My most recent release was just a collection of my punky/ska/doo-wop tracks. I now only use my Krista D project in order to release music in that genre.

Dividing up my material to avoid another "mixed tape" kind of release was the reason I began the Molly Grue project. I'll also be releasing an EP of harder rock material under the project name Hooha and the Peter Guns in the near future.

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

Lots, but I'm having a hard time getting on top of my self-imposed release dates. I'm mainly a visual artist, so I prioritize those responsibilities and am in the middle of an artists' residency right now. I was *supposed* to be wrapping up the Molly Grue EP, but just can't find the time to book studio time. I'm hoping to get back at it late August. I've released the single "Anyway" in the meantime.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

I've decided to wait until after I complete the EP before I book things.

8. What plans do you have for the future?

I'm learning that nothing goes according to what I've planned, so I'm just going with the "Que Sera, Sera" approach. I'll aim to release the EP and plan to play a small tour with it- but life and circumstance will ultimately decide what gets done and when.

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

The single is currently available on all digital platforms, you can follow the links at (Follow me on Facebook if you want to know when the EP is finalized).

10. What is it you'd like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

Listeners might like to know that the lyrics happened out of circumstance vs. my trying to write things simply to release an album. Everything is based on life situations and I guess you would say this is my saddest material- so if you're looking for some peppy driving tunes, this EP is not recommended.
