Goodnight Moonshine is Molly Venter’s latest musical project, a collaboration with her husband Eben Pariser. Co-writing often, Eben and Molly explore what it means to be in a healthy authentic relationship; both wholesome and irreverent, they sing of joy and grief in equal measure. Molly’s voice bends from a sweet moan to a gritty shout and back into a playful run in the space of a few bars and “it all goes down like silk,” writes American Songwriter Magazine; “few singers turn first time listeners into eternal fanatics as effortlessly as Molly Venter.” The emotional potency of her voice is surrounded and supported by a lush landscape of harmonies and minimalist orchestrations conceived by Eben on vocals and electric guitar. Molly’s voice has caught the ear of industry giants, and been prominently featured on FOX television, Apple Computers and in Warner Brothers films. Consummate performers, Molly and Eben have also appeared nationally and internationally, performing 100+ shows a year, with their respective bands Red Molly and Roosevelt Dime. Their co-write “Willow Tree” was a #1 hit on the folk charts in 2014 and was featured in USA Today. The group tours as a trio with Adam Chilenski on upright bass.

New York City native Emily Mure first entered the performing world as a classical oboist, playing in some of New York’s biggest concert halls as a teenager. In college, she started writing songs and playing guitar, which gave her a new creative freedom. Drawn to folk and Irish Traditional music, she attended a summer music program at The University of Limerick. Emily fell in love with Ireland and later lived there for 6 months, making her living performing on the streets of Galway. She has two full-length albums and a few singles, including a recently released cover of Elliott Smith’s Between The Bars, as well as a song written for her husband on their wedding day, The Wedding Song. Emily is currently working on her third studio album at Dimension Sound Studios in Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts. She plans to release it in 2017.
