Molly Rogers

Violinist | Violist | Vocalist | Arranger | Composer

Molly was born and raised in the beautiful city of Frankfort, Kentucky. When she demonstrated a quick and natural ear for music, she began piano lessons at the age of three and quickly moved on to Suzuki violin lessons at age four.  At nine, she went on to study at the preparatory department at the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music. She has extensive training including time in the Czech Republic, the Cleveland Institute of Music, and summer festivals such as Meadowmount and Tanglewood. Although she is a classically trained violinist, violist, and vocalist, her music is infused with a folk, bluegrass, and jazz performance style stemming from her Kentucky roots where she learned to let loose her improvisational skills. 

Molly appeared on NPR as a young violinist on the radio program "From the Top" and demonstrated technique and music history on a video toolkit developed by PBS and KET.  She was a featured performer at the the Governor's Tribute to Freedom (in honor of the 9/11 victims) and the Governor's Prayer Breakfast.  She has performed all over the world in over 25 different countries and has shared the stage, worked with, or recorded for a wide range of artists including David Foster, Andrea Bocelli, Adele, Kendrick Lamar, Journey, Pharrell, Portugal. The Man, ODESZA, Pentatonix, Andra Day, Bastille, Damian Marley, Kimbra, Kamasi Washington, Yoshiki of X Japan, Iggy Azalea, Feist, and Matt Corby, as well as opening up for Amy Grant as a second-time soloist with the Louisville Orchestra. Her television credits include the Grammy Awards, Carpool Karaoke with James Cordera, the MTV movie awards, the ESPY Awards, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and Late Night with Conan O'Brien. She recently returned from an international tour as a solo violinist with Hans Zimmer for his live show. 

Molly works as a freelance artist and currently resides in Los Angeles where she is available for session work, including remote sessions from her home, and as a composer and arranger for commission. You might catch her as part of her original music duo, Haushold, or as a violinist for the Orchid String Quartet.
