Molyneux's first solo show and release were in 2010, while living in Thailand, amid Bangkok’s burgeoning noise scene and violent unrest. Born in northwest Ohio, at 14 his family moved to middle Tennessee where he would become a staple of its experimental music scene. He currently lives in Denver, Colorado.

Sister Grotto:

Sister Grotto is the moniker of Denver musician Madeline Johnston. She creates loops and ambient textures using delayed instruments and voice, homemade sound objects, and found tape samples. Grotto’s soundscapes are often minimal, using simple instrumentation accompanied by sparse vocals to make delicate, almost mantra-like, anthems for the human condition.

Of Earth and Sun:

Of Earth And Sun's music can be considered ‘ritual drone’, ‘dark ambient’, and 'occult psychedelia'; and has elements of noise, improvisation, and electronic music, with industrial and experimental sound aesthetics. Live performances are theatrical and captivating; ‘walls of sound’, heavy laden with drones, live loops, bone horns, and low haunting vocals, which envelop the audience members. The performances are a means to captivate, deepen the listener’s experience, and create altered states of consciousness, and to viscerally affect the listener's body and brain. The overall sound of the bones and vocals become intense saturated layered drones steeped in delay and distortion, with heavy bass drum loops, which create vibratory effects within self/others and the venue itself.
