Goodnight Moonshine

Sunday, January 18, 2015

Goodnight Moonshine is a collaboration of songwriters Molly Venter of the chart-topping Americana group Red Molly, and Eben Pariser of the explosive Brooklyn quintet Roosevelt Dime. Steeped in the 90's alternative music of their youth, Goodnight Moonshine plays modern folk music with brazen vocals and roots & blues guitar. Imagery-rich stories and bold melodies create a sound that is both celebratory and mournful, reminding the listener of what it felt like to fall in love with a band for the first time.

Goodnight Moonshine

Molly Venter has been making music professionally since 2004, has released 4 solo albums and toured extensively. Her early music was featured on Warner Brothers ski movie "Impact", as well as promotional Jeep material (2005 &06).  Love Me Like You Mean it (2008) was distributed by Barnes & Noble and featured on over 400 listening stations across the country. Two songs from the album appear on all in-store Apple computers for listeners to peruse. Venter also co-wrote and performed the closing credits song in the 2012 indie-film "Audrey". Her songwriting has earned her placings in the Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk Contest and Rocky Mountain Folks Fest Songwriter Showcase.

In the 18 months following the release of Love Me Like You Mean It, Venter spent many a night sleeping in her Honda Element and played over 300 shows. Among those shows were several opening spots for the female-Americana trio Red Molly. When the band asked her to join the line-up in 2010 Venter was positively thrilled.  Having lived in Idaho, California, Mexico, and Austin, TX for 7 years, Venter is now adjusting to life in Brooklyn. Her newest project- a duo with Eben Pariser of Roosevelt Dime, is called Good Night Moon Shine.
