Last November our friends Molly and Denton got hitched! A few days before their wedding, they stopped by River City Studios to record another River City Session. They recorded an original song titled “Bartending” written by Molly Taylor. Thank you, Molly and Denton for taking the time out of your busy week to join us and share your song. Read more about Molly and Denton’s track below and learn how audio engineer Wesley DeVore, recorded the song.
Give us some background on yourself. How long have you guys been making music?
We have been writing and performing our own music separately for over 15 years now. We started performing together about 2 years ago and we got hitched last November!
“Bartending!” Such a great jam! Can you tell us when you wrote it? What’s the inspiration?
Molly wrote the song because she worked as a bartender for 10 years! If you ever stopped by a bar in Baton Rouge, chances are Molly’s served you!
Does writing a melody come naturally to you?
Writing music is something that comes naturally to Denton and I. We are both individual songwriters with different ways of writing a song. It’s interesting and fun to connect and work with a partner to create a song that you both feel great about.
Do you prefer performing your own music or covers? What’s the difference?
We definitely love performing our own music but we love doing a good cover of a great oldie as well!
How has the Coronavirus affected your craft?
Due to restrictions in place because of Covid-19, we’ve had to cancel over 30 shows for us so far so it has affected us big time. We are ready to hit the road and start performing again!
