MOLASS is hot and cold, modern and vintage, cool and touching. Surrounded by magical vibes the quartet creates visually stunning stories, which laugh about their own melancholy.
Marissa Möller, the bands vocalist and composer, works for three years at a theater after finishing her acting and musical studies. Then she moves to cologne and founds the band MOLASS with pianist Jan Lammert. Marissa’s poetic lyrics are like diary entries and provide the listener an insight into her world of thought, always accompanied by a groovy soul flair. Pianist Jan complements Marissa’s compositions with experimental poly-rhythms and exciting harmonies and thereby creates sophisticated arrangements. Drummer Lambert Windges and bassist Julian Schwiebert complete the band with their own style of playing and turn it into a dynamic combo
In october 2018 the band releases their self-recorded debut album GREEN SKY, which became album of the month in „Coolibri Magazin“. 2019 MOLASS won the „Jazz Band Challange Viersen“ and played not only at the „Internationales Jazzfestival Viersen“ but also on other well-known festivals like „musikmesse Frankfrut“ and „Jazzrally Düsseldorf“.
