Origins

Molly Jenson 2014 Stagecoach California39s Country Music Festival Day

At age twelve, Jenson was a vocalist in her first band, named "GALS". The band was composed of several of her classmates. For about a year, Jenson was a vocalist with the Christian rock band, Everybodyduck, which toured California for several years playing Christian churches and camps. Other members of the band included Darin McWatters as the lead vocalist, guitarists Josh Blanken, Cory Knapp and Tim Sovinec, and drummer Mike Day.

Music career

She won the award for "Best Acoustic Act" at the 2007 San Diego Music Awards. In April 2007, Teen Vogue Magazine named her "One of the three best new artists on MySpace". In 2007, she collaborated with Switchfoot lead singer Jon Foreman on his solo Spring EP. In May, 2008, she signed to producer Mark Joseph's Bully! Pulpit Records, in a joint partnership with Nettwerk Music Group (home to top artists like Sarah McLachlan, Avril Lavigne and The Cardigans). Her first album on Bully! Pulpit/Nettwerk "Maybe Tomorrow", produced by Greg Laswell, was released worldwide on March 3, 2009, featuring a duet with Foreman titled "Do You Only Love The Ones Who Look Like You." In September 2008 Jenson's song "Give It Time" was selected to appear in the Freshman Survival Kit, which went out to 75,000 incoming college freshman. In the fall of 2008, Jenson's song, "Wait For You Here," was used in the premiere of the new NBC Television show Knight Rider, while another song "Give It Time" was used in the CW show Privileged. More recently, Molly Jenson was featured on Sherwood's third album, Qu on the song "Worn".

Live performances/Tours

Jenson toured in Japan in 2008 and has toured in the United States and Europe.
