Molly Thomas has always been a child of the water 🌊 and metaphors of flow,🧘‍♀️movement, tidal change 🌊 and bodily connection 🌗 frequently surface in her lyrics. Born in Ocean Springs, Mississippi, Thomas has made made her home in and cultivated the majority of her musical influences from the southern regions of Alabama, Mississippi, and Tennessee.🌟 A hive for songwriters and artists whose emotive storytelling and beautifully gritty swampy🎸swagger personify the region, the south has been the perfect location for Thomas to grow her self-described Indie Swamp Pop. gulfcoastballoonfestival.com/entertainment/#GCHABF2021 #foley #alabama #gulfcoast #ballooning #hotairballoons See MoreSee Less
