Goodnight Moonshine is Molly Venter's (of the band Red Molly) latest musical project, a collaboration with husband Eben Pariser. The duo, joined by upright bassist Adam Chilenski, will take the Winter Wind stage at The Depot on November 12 2017. Music begins at 7:00 pm. Tickets are $20.
Consummate performers, Molly and Eben, have appeared nationally and internationally, performing 100+ shows a year, with their respective bands Red Molly and Roosevelt Dime. Together, as Goodnight Moonshine, they reveal the addictively captivating and courageous unveiling of the depth of experience between them as a married couple.
Co-writing often, the couple uses the creative process to explore a healthy authentic relationship. Both wholesome and irreverent, they sing of grief and joy in equal measure; Molly gives smooth delivery to Eben's assertions while Eben gives form and focus to Molly's raw passion.
Molly Venter's voice bends from a sweet moan to a gritty shout and back into a playful run in the space of a few bars and "it all goes down like silk," writes American Songwriter Magazine - "few singers turn first time listeners into eternal fanatics as effortlessly as Molly Venter." Molly’s voice has caught the ear of industry giants, and been prominently featured on FOX television, Apple Computers and in Warner Brothers films. The emotional potency of her voice is surrounded and supported by a lush landscape of harmonies and minimalist orchestrations conceived by Eben on vocals and electric guitar.
The music of Goodnight Moonshine encourages listeners to embrace opposing desires, to challenge as well as support each other through inspiration and dissolution, and hopefully to share this journey with their larger communities.
