Currently based in Johnson City, TN, and originally from Carthage, NC, Momma Molasses is the musical project of singer-songwriter Ella Patrick. Growing up with a deep love of music, Patrick began playing string instruments at an early age while singing gospel music in church, and learning folk ballads from her parents dusty late 60’s record collection. While in college at Warren Wilson, just outside of Asheville, Patrick studied old-time, and bluegrass music, and later played fiddle for bands in the Asheville area. Two years ago, Patrick decided cook up some songs of her own, with a recipe consisting of equal parts Southern Appalachia, and 1960s folk revival. With her sweetly stirring contralto voice, and homespun fingerpicked guitar, Momma Molasses has been likened by listeners to artists such as Patsy Cline, Mother Maybelle Carter, and early (pre-rock n’ roll) Janis Joplin.

Now with a year and a half of touring under her belt, a self-released EP, and a warm reception throughout Tennessee and North Carolina, Momma Molasses released her new 8 track album “Anthems from a Broken Heart” this past June. Chronicling the process of falling “out of love” and into self-respect, the album is a collection fit for those broken by past relationships, aiming to bring a sense of power, self-worth, and clarity from the knowledge that loneliness, heartbreak, and hope all walk hand in hand.


Momma Molasses will be performing at Preservation Pub on August 18th as a part of the Scruffy City Bar Hop, from 8:00pm-9:30pm and will be followed by the Jaden Carlson Band (Boulder, CO Retro/Funk/Dance/Rock) 10:00pm-11:30pm. Door cover is $5 after 8pm.
