Molly Kate Kestner may be new to the Los Angeles music scene, but she is by no means an amateur. The 22-year-old singer-songwriter's gift for writing paired with her powerhouse voice make it clear she is wise and talented beyond her years and have allowed her to build a strong following.
Kestner was first propelled into the spotlight when her song she wrote in high school, "His Daughter," an
emotional ballad she recorded for her friends and family, went viral. The video earned over 1.5 million views in less than two weeks (and it currently sits at 15.9 million), got her a performance on Good Morning America, and an Atlantic Records recording contract came to follow - something the rural Minnesota native had only dreamed of.
Molly moved to Los Angeles in 2016 and has been busy writing songs for herself as well as for other established artists, such as Kelly Clarkson. She’s released 6 singles, with plans to release more in the coming months. Her first single, "Good Die Young" amassed 700K+ streams in just its first week and her more recent track “Compromise” is part of the global Release Your Renegade campaign for the Jeep Renegade. 2018 will see new music and more shows from the young songwriter, and her continued effort to spread light and connect young people everywhere.
