Molly Sweeney was born in Sault Ste Marie, Ontario, the youngest of five children. She grew up in Northern Michigan and Cape Cod, Massachusetts, returning to Canada to attend McGill University. Graduating with a degree in Cultural Studies, she found herself eminently well-qualified to bartend. Working at a music venue in the heart of Montreal's indie scene and playing the coffeehouse circuit, she met many of her future friends and collaborators, including composer Sam Shalabi, who recruited her to appear on his 2009 Land of Kush album Against the Day. She collaborated with Shalabi on a number of soundtracks and live performances, and sang the title track from Land of Kush's 2010 album Monogamy.

Molly has appeared with Land of Kush in three other incarnations both on record and onstage, performing two years at Pop Montreal, Suoni per il Popolo, and at the FIMAV festival in Victoriaville. Her multi-octave performances with Land of Kush were consistently singled out for critical praise, with describing her "smoky vocals" on the 60s spy-theme number Bilocations as "without doubt the centrepiece of Against the Day,â and comparing her to âa young Shirley Bassey, alternating between fluttering vulnerability, mournful devotion and empowered passion.â

Molly perfected her performance technique while pursuing her own songwriting, and in 2010 she assembled a band to record her debut album, Gold Rings and Fur Pelts. She and engineer/producer Radwan Moumneh recorded and mixed the songs at the Hotel2Tango Studio in Montreal.
