Molly Kate Kestner may be new to the Los Angeles music scene, but she is by no means an amateur. The 21-year-old singer-songwriter’s gift for writing paired with her soulful, 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 million] and got her noticed and signed by Atlantic Records – something the rural Minnesota native had only dreamed of.
Molly moved to Los Angeles in February 2016 and has been busy writing songs for herself and other established artists while making her way through the LA, London, and Nashville writing circuits. She released her first song “Good Die Young” on December 2nd, amassing 800K+ streams in just its first week. In the coming months, Kestner will continue performing and will release new music as well as a mini album in the spring of 2017.
