Molly Jenson is a singer/songwriter from Southern California. She independently released her debut album, “Maybe Tomorrow” (produced by Greg Laswell), in 2005.
Jenson signed to Bully!Pulpit Records, in a joint partnership with Nettwerk Music Group in 2008 and re-released her debut album in 2009 with an added duet featuring Switchfoot lead singer, Jon Foreman. In 2010 Jenson was a part of the resurgence of Lilith Fair. In 2012 she began writing/singing for the For The Sender music project which also included fellow musicians Jon Foreman, Alex Woodard, Sean & Sara Watkins (Nickel Creek, The Watkins Family), Jordan Pundik (New Found Glory), Nena Anderson, Jack Tempchin & more. The same year Jenson joined with country artist Sam Outlaw as his backup singer and guitar player. Jenson toured with Outlaw in the US, Canada, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. She acted and sang, along with Alex Woodard and Harley Jay, for the stage adaptation of For The Sender: Love Letters from Vietnam, a continuation of the For The Sender project, which included songs written by Jenson and Woodard. She toured with Outlaw until May of 2018.
In 2019 she received the Speranza Foundation's Lincoln City Fellowship for her music.
And now, Jenson is back with her sophomore album “Goodbye”. Collaborating once again with musician/producer Greg Laswell, Jenson has crafted a collection of songs that challenge all of us to say “goodbye” to the things and relationships that no longer serve us.
