Skinny Molly was founded in 2004 by Mike Estes (formerly of Lynyrd Skynyrd) and drummer Kurt Pietro. What was meant to be a one off tour of Europe has turned into one of the hardest working and popular rock bands out of the southern United States. Skinny Molly now includes guitarist Jay Johnson (Blackfoot/Rossington Band), and Grand Ole Stalwart bassist  Luke Bradshaw. This line up has toured relentlessly, crossing the States and three continents on the strength of their "No Good Deed" debut CD in 2008, which has established the band as popular touring outfit across the USA and Europe.
The music and live reputation of the band caught the attention of legendary Ruf Records label president Thomas Ruf. Skinny Molly subsequently signed a deal with Ruf Records, becoming the second "southern rock" band to be signed in the wake of Ruf's expansion into the genre. At the time of the signing, Skinny Molly was in the studio cutting what would become their new and widely acclaimed CD, "Haywire Riot" released last year. The band hit the road over the next year, playing all over the world. They are now cutting their as of yet untitled third CD, and have begun booking dates for next year as well. 2014 will take Skinny Molly from California and all over the USA to Scandinavia and all points in Europe. This band is on the move and have become a major force to be reckoned with on the Southern Rock scene. Skinny Molly's mantra is "Never let one fan leave a show disappointed" They have made good on that promise, and by all accounts are committed to keep it for many, many years to come. Check out Haywire Riot for the best songs in southern rock since the good ol' days...This is no retro act though. These guys stand on solid songs, unique playing and creative instrumentation and arrangements to make even the most jaded rock fan (or even country or blues fan) a fan for life. Jump on and enjoy the ride. You won't be disappointed!

How I Spent My Summer Vacation 

Since we returned from Finland in May, we have played a decent amount
of shows this summer here in the States and in France. But as you might
know, we've been concentrating on recording our new CD "Here For A
Good Time"  The CD is pretty much what the title says. We picked some
songs we'd played live for fun, and a couple of old songs I'd written a
while back that I thought should get the Skinny Molly treatment and a
second chance to be heard. I also wrote a few new ones, that I wound up
pretty happy with. Here… Read more
