For my last music interview, I introduced you to Krista Acheson from Krista D. Now she is back with another solo project by the name of Molly Grue. Krista spoke to me about this new project:
Band Name: Molly Grue
Members: Krista Acheson (singer/songwriter) + various musicians
Genre: Soft Rock
Originated From : Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
Discography: ‘Anyway’ (single) & EP to be announced
How would you describe your music?
Lyrically it’s quite melancholy, the topics are addressing themes such as abuse and mental illness.
How did the band form?
It’s essentially a side project that I started to release the softer rock material from my song catalogue. I decided to divide up all my material into 3 projects since, although my songwriting is fairly eclectic, it tends to stick to 3 styles.
Who influenced you within the music industry?
No one specifically, but I’m sure there are many songs and musicians who have unconsciously influenced my writing.
Have you performed live much and what was your favourite gig to play at?
As Molly Grue, no, I’ve not been very active yet, I’ve only performed once at a gallery opening. I’ve just released the first single ‘Anyway’, but am waiting to perform more after I have the EP recorded. I was more active, performance-wise, under my longest running project: Krista D.
What is the best thing about being a singer/songwriter?
I like that it’s an alternate outlet for my emotions. I’m mainly a visual artist so I work through a lot of stuff by painting and sculpting; getting to sing and write about things is also a great release.
What plans have you got coming up in the coming year?
Mainly trying to wrap up the EP! I’ve been so busy with some visual art commitments that I’ve not been able to find time to get into the studio.
