Molly with Charles
Molly with Charles is a Bay Area-based collaboration between singer Molly Arizona and composer Charles Nutrivore. Their style ranges from smooth contemporary R&B to upbeat neo-soul. The band draws a lot of inspiration from the exacting, soulful minimalism of artists like Sade, Frank Ocean and John Mayer, and their live performances have drawn comparisons to popular neo-soul groups such as Hiatus Kiayote, Daniel Caesar and Phony Ppl. Their work is also a testament to the diversity of the Bay Area music scene, with contributions from Vacaville jazz trumpeters, South Berkeley rappers and Oakland guitarists. The duo has released two EPs and is currently working on their first full length album.
Exploring the emotional undercurrents of our daily lives, evoking hope and longing in equal parts, Oakland native Austin Prince makes music that hits listeners between the heart and gut. Creating music to fill his own need for connection and understanding, Austin is influenced by Alabama Shakes, Jack Johnson, and Frank Ocean.
His last single “Sadie” was placed on Spotify’s New Music Friday playlist and has set the tone for what The Deli Magazine called his "minimalistic pop-meets-soul" sound. Back from a 3-week National tour with half•alive, Austin is shaping and building this project and getting ready to release his next single “Jesus When It Rains” in April 2019.
