Molly Bolten
Molly Bolten is a musician, songwriter and audio engineer from San Francisco.

A musician since early childhood, she started writing songs when she was a teenager. It should be noted that she also wrote many short one-hand piano pieces starting around age 6, one of which was called “Egyptoin Dance” (not a typo). She learned to groove in college in New Jersey, where she studied music composition and creative writing. During that time, she sang in a sort-of-afrobeat band, Sensemaya Afrobeat All-Stars, and played guitar in a hip hop/soul/jazz outfit, Gorilla Gorilla. In 2013, she formed a super-friend-band out of those two groups and made the Night Kitchen Experiment, the band on her 2014 album All Seats Provide Equal Viewing of the Universe.

In 2015, she released her EP Home Alone.

These days the Bay Area native lives in San Francisco, performing under her name and playing guitar in various other projects. She can often be found in one of three locations: her apartment, the Korean spa or the diner near her apartment.
For the past 11 years LoCura has crafted their own unique musical identity: "Califas Mestizo Music" which is a blend of Latin American and Iberican rhythms such as rumba, cumbia, salsa and flamenco influenced by punkrock, ska, rap, dub, reggae, dancehall with local and global lyrical themes. The band's name ("it cures it") reflects their ethos of making music a remedy, a theme which permeates lyrics such as "la cultura cura la locura," cultures cures the madness. LoCura has released three full length albums, performed in many places around the world and is currently writing and recording music for their fourth album.
