"Though the singer is silent, there is still the truth of the song."  - John Denver

John Denver is not silent . . for those of us connected through his music, heart, friendship and/or global consciousness.  His vision for "a world that works" has fired our souls with an intense urgency to keep the flame burning.  My soul has longed for a way, thus, this CD.  The songs selected for this album stir within the essence of our divine human connection and in this troubled world can be a welcome inspiration.  The truth of the song still lives and will find its way once again into mankind's broken heart.  It is our vision that John's songs will be heard anew through Mack and Mollie's embrace of his message . . . claiming the truth of the song as their own.  The band raises the magical force of this music to undreamed of heights coupled with their fresh passion, deep feeling, power and grace.  John's presence has been felt by all of us during the creation of this CD, much like the mystical quality of footprints in windblown snow.

Love, Karmen

Mollie is a native of Colorado and began singing as a little girl, growing up in a family of musicians. She desired to further her study at the Conservatory of Music in Kansas City, where she studied vocal performance under world-renowned opera singer/performer Michael Cousins. Entering UMKC on both academic and vocal scholarships, Mollie soon graduated with honors. During her tenure at the University, she made a name for herself by performing in many operas, musicals and both jazz and choir concerts with nationally acclaimed conductor/professor Dr. Eph Ely. Not only was she vocally active within the University, but independently as well.

Mollie quickly became familiar with the local recording studios in the Kansas City area, doing television and radio jingles, singing on a variety of albums and several conventions throughout the United States. Most of 2001 Mollie spent performing in Kansas City a lead role she developed in the new Sticks of Thunder high-energy production produced by VPR Creative Group.

Mollie has performed at Coffman and Arrowhead stadiums in Kansas City, the Paramount Theatre, Magness Arena and the Pepsi Center in Denver, the Denver Coliseum, on Channel 9 and on Denver radio stations - most recently a live performance on KYGO to promote her summer concerts. Singing with orchestras, big bands, and with such entertainers as Jay Leno, Vince Gill, Amy Grant, Tracy Byrd, Jimmy Ibbotson of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Jim Salestrom, Jenny McCarthy, and for as many as 60,000 people, Mollie used her vocal versatility. While recording on albums, jingles for television/radio and musicals, she would often be found working a part time job or teaching dance and music lessons.

For the past four years she has performed around the country in the John Denver Tribute concerts to benefit many organizations like challenge aspen, cystic fibrosis, dyslexia, and more. Mollie, along with former friends and members of John Denver's band including Jim Horn, Pete Huttlinger, Chris Nole, Michito Sanchez and Bill Danoff, perform these very special tribute concerts. Mollie knew John Denver as well as Kris O'Connor, who was John's close personal friend, road manager and co-producer for 27 years.

Kris and Mollie produced "Love, Mollie" in 1997 and "Mollie" in 2000. Both albums were recorded in Nashville with musicians that have recorded and performed with John Denver, Faith Hill, Shania Twain, Garth Brooks, The Rolling Stones, Billy Joel, Wynonna, Alan Jackson, Joe Cocker, Elton John, Louise Mandrell, Vince Gill, Travis Tritt, Lionel Ritchie, The Beach Boys, John Lennon, James Taylor, Barbara Streisand, Frank Sinatra, Ringo Star, Josť Feliciano, The Supremes, Trisha Yearwood, George Burns, Andy Griggs, Clint Black, Eric Clapton and Tina Turner to name a few!! The songwriters who approached and gave Mollie their songs to record have written songs for some of the artists listed above.

Mollie has promoted her CD's through headlining in concerts around Colorado and the western states, performing with the same band from Nashville that she recorded with. With a beautiful voice that appeals to all ages and her four-octave range, Mollie has the unique ability to sing a broad range of styles from pop to classical and everything in between! The concerts she gives are examples of her versatility as a vocalist and performer.

 

 

Mack Bailey

You can tell a lot about singer/songwriter Mack Bailey by the musical company he keeps. He once sang backup to Vince Gill and Amy Grant, only to have them sing backup to him a song later. The Grammy winning Jordanaires sang backup on his CD Why I'm Here. Mary Chapin Carpenter sang on his first album - which was produced by Bill Danoff of "Country Roads" and "Afternoon Delight" fame. John Denver once sang with Bailey on stage. And Denver's long-time producer, Kris O'Connor produced Bailey's collection of songs, Through Your Eyes. Three of Denver's former band members, Jim Horn, Chris Nole and Pete Huttlinger played on the album. Bailey is also a graduate of the North Carolina School of the Arts, where he used to jam with Jim Lauderdale.

Bailey's rich melodic voice earned him the Best Male Vocal honors in the Traditional Folk category at the 1992 Washington Area Music Awards. Four times he's been chosen to sing the national anthem for the Baltimore Orioles' home games. He advanced yet another step toward artistic immortality when his song "High Gear" was featured on National Public Radio's irreverent and wildly popular "Car Talk." He has been called "DC area's most perfect tenor."

While other kids his age were locking onto rock music, Bailey was listening to his father's old Limeliters and New Christy Minstrel folk albums. "I played them all the time when I was growing up," he says. "I just loved their harmonies. I loved how their voices worked together. It was fun music. They just struck a chord that could take me away and make me feel great." Later, under the sway of John Denver's music, he taught himself to play the guitar.

Although Bailey would go on to earn his degree at the North Carolina School of the Arts, he transferred briefly to the University of North Carolina. It was here that he got his first taste of club performing, working with the locally popular Blue Moon Saloon Band.

Once out of school, Bailey moved to New Hampshire to become the in-house minstrel for the Mount Washington Hotel. "It gave me a chance to have a different audience each week," he explains. "But I still had a core group of supporters at the hotel."

After four years in New Hampshire, Bailey relocated to Maryland to work as bar manager and weekend entertainer at a friend's restaurant. Here he met the Hard Travelers, a folk group originally formed at the University of Maryland in the 1950s and then reunited for occasional gigs more than 20 years later. Bailey continues to perform with the group and has recorded five albums with it.

Bailey moved on, this time to the renowned King of France Tavern in Annapolis, Maryland. In addition to working as a solo act, he also hosted the "Mack Bailey Folk Jam" series. It featured performances by folk acts that were touring the region. In the mid-80's, Bailey began involving himself in vibrant folk scene in Washington, DC. This led to the recording of his first album, On My Way, in 1988. That effort was followed by Just Another Thursday Night (a live album) in 1990 and a children's album, Friends, in 1995.

As a wandering troubadour in his own right, Bailey has commanded the stages of such famed venues as the Birchmere, in Alexandria, Virginia; Passims, in Cambridge, Massachusetts; and the Bluebird, in Nashville. He has played many festivals, among them Rocky Gap, Philadelphia Folk Festival, Kerrville, Bethlehem Musikfest and the World's Fair in Knoxville. In addition, Bailey has opened for or shared the stage with such notables as Alabama, Vince Gill, Amy Grant, Randy Travis, Chet Atkins, Brooks and Dunn and John Denver. One of Bailey's high points was being asked to fill in for the Limeliters' absent tenor when this beloved group from his childhood played the World Folk Music Concert in Washington.

Bailey composed and performed the soundtrack music for the PBS specials, Block Island - A Gift Of The Glaciers and Smith Island - Land Water People Time. And he co-wrote the theme for the Johns Hopkins Children's Miracle Network telethon.

Each October since the fall of 1999, Bailey has performed in " A Musical Tribute To John Denver," a series of concerts by Denver's band members and friends to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Challenge Aspen and the National Dyslexia Foundation.

Besides writing, performing and recording, Bailey is musically active in several medical and environmental causes, among them Maryland Therapeutic Riding, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, the Johns Hopkins Children's Center, the Chesapeake Bay Foundation. Mack also performs regularly in nursing homes and Alzheimer's units playing group concerts and individual outreach.

Noting both his voice and sense of mission, former Limeliter Glenn Yarbrough dubbed Mack "the next great singer in folk music."
