Molly Joyce’s music has been described as one of “serene power” (New York Times), written to “superb effect” (The Wire), and “impassioned” (The Washington Post). Her works have been commissioned by ensembles including the New World, New York Youth, Pittsburgh, and Milwaukee Symphony Orchestras, and New Juilliard, Decoda, and Contemporaneous ensembles. Additionally, her work has been presented at TEDxMidAtlantic, Bang on a Can Marathon, Classical:NEXT, VisionIntoArt’s FERUS Festival, and featured in Pitchfork, WNYC’s New Sounds, Q2 Music, I Care If You Listen, and The Log Journal.
Also active as a performer, Molly often sings and plays with her vintage toy organ, an instrument she loves due to how it fits her impaired left hand. Her debut full-length album featuring such will be released on New Amsterdam Records in 2020.
Molly has studied at The Juilliard School, Royal Conservatory in The Hague, and Yale School of Music.
