Molly started the violin at three, cello, flute and piano at four and began composing at eight. She won a scholarship to the Centre for Young Musicians from 11 to 18, won the prize for National Choral Composition and played in the LSCO and the LSSO. After studing Music and Composition at Sussex and City Universities, Molly worked at Classic FM and various TV companies. She then started her own company, composing music for film and television and performing live with a 13 piece band. She has worked on award winning and critically acclaimed films; David Slade’s Hard Candy (2005), Michael Winterbottom’s A Mighty Heart (2007) and Road To Guantanamo (2006), Nick Broomfield’s Ghosts (2006), Deep Water (2006), I Am Slave (2010), Poppy Shakespeare (BAFTA nominated), Father & Son (ITV), Stephen Fry in America (BBC) Michael Palin’s New Europe (BBC) and Shifty (2009) BIFA nominated score. As Music Director for the largest concert in Dubai with a 350 piece choir, 95 piece orchestra and some acrobats thrown in, Molly rewrote the Dubai national anthem.In 2009 she sat on the Ivor Novello jury and in 2010 the BAFTA Television Crafts Jury. In May 2011 she was elected to the Board of PRS for Music. As the first new director for over 6 years she now sits on the International and Distribution sub-committees.Her musical tastes are diverse, ranging from Plan-B to Bernard Hermann to Thomas Newman to Stravinsky to Gorillaz…She has a natural interest in how works are published and protected, strongly feeling that the diversity of digital music requires a constant proactive enforcement of the composers rights. In a homogenised age there is a danger of everything original becoming lost, diluted and duplicated. She is very keen to be part of the process which protects and nurtures all that is key to sustaining the rights of the composer and publisher alike.
