MOLLY STERLING

Self-taught 17-year-old musician Molly Sterling is at her happiest when she’s singing and playing her piano in her County Tipperary home.

When she was little, she used to sing along to her dad’s Eagles, Queen and Meatloaf CDs in the car. She taught herself piano when she was 11 and when she was 12 she entered her first competition and that’s when she was bitten with the performance bug.

Molly now lives in Dublin. Her favourite artists are Stevie Nicks, Hozier, Lana Del Ray and Beyonce. She and songwriter/producer Greg French co-wrote Playing With Numbers as part of her upcoming album. The song was written about the risks people take every day in love and in life, and the experiences of taking the road less travelled.

Do I owe you something
I think I do
They tied our hands
But I cut through
In the arms of the potion
They found our truth
And I made a girl
Abandoned youth and

Made the mess in your vision and
See a debt to be paid
To give a little love was all that I wanted
Give a little love was all my intent and I
Was playing with the numbers and
I didn’t know what it meant

Please don’t remind me
I won’t be your muse
Fragile misguided minds like mine
Only know how to use
Whil I played with white lies and fiction
Unbeknownst to you
I played the victim
Well that was the last time I faced you and

Made the mess in your vision and
See a debt to be paid
To give a little love was all that I wanted
Give a little love was all my intent and I
Was playing with the numbers and
I didn’t know what it meant

I can watch from afar from my art on my
Own all along I was lost I was wild this is
Wrong I can’t force this just watch as the surface
Surrenders it all

Made the mess in your vision and
See a debt to be paid
to give a little was all that I wanted
Give a little love was all my intent and
I was playing with the numbers and
I didn’t know what it meant
