About

MOLLIE WEAVER

Mollie Weaver began her singing career at a young age surrounded by musicians both in her family and friendships. One of those friendships was with John Denver. John introduced her to his band, and at 16 she began recording and performing with them. Weaver expanded her craft by attending a prestigious music conservatory, where she studied classical voice and learned the art of singing opera. After college, the Colorado native moved to New York City to sing with the New York City Opera and began recording pop songs for television and film including Fox Broadcasting Company and CW Networks. While living in New York she sang on many stages including Jazz at Lincoln Center and Joes's Pub. According to Weaver, two of the highlights of her career happened in 2007 and 2010 when she performed at the legendary Carnegie Hall with guitarist and friend Pete Huttlinger.

Weaver has provided live backing vocals for many artists including Lionel Richie, Martina McBride, and Taylor Swift. Mollie also sang background vocals for Dave Matthews on The Grammy's in 2010 and for the contestants on American Idol in 2013. She has shared the stage with numerous entertainers including Tony Bennett, Noel Paul Stookey, Jay Leno, Amy Grant, Vince Gill and Rhianna.

Most recently, you can hear her background vocals on the new release “Find You” by Zedd which aired during the 2014 Grammy Awards and the 2014 Superbowl and is on the soundtrack to the Hollywood blockbuster film Divergent. Weaver recently was in the studio recently with producer Peter Asher lending vocals to the soundtrack of Rock The Kasbah (starring Bill Murray). Asher also took Weaver, along with Rick Cowling (Ambrosia, Kenny Loggins) on the road where she performed with the legendary producer, Terry Sylvester, Denny Laine, Badfinger and Player.

Weaver is currently living in Los Angeles and has recently partnered with long-time friend Pete Huttlinger to record and perform as Parnassus.

 

PETE HUTTLINGER

Pete Huttlinger has become widely known as one of the most awe-inspiring acoustic guitar players in the world. His unique arrangements and spell-binding musicality and precision have entertained audiences all from Los Angeles to Milan.

As a recording artist Huttlinger has released numerous albums and received wide-acceptance ranging from his critically acclaimed “Naked Pop” continuing to his current instrumental tour de force, “McGuire's Landing”.

Praise from the media has been overwhelmingly positive and Huttlinger continues to expand his musical breadth.

In 2007, Huttlinger made his debut at New York City's Carnegie Hall. He was invited back in 2008 and made his first appearance there as a solo artist demonstrating what audiences around the world know him best for - his fantastic sense of humor and mind-blowing chops all combined to make a full-on, entertaining 90 minutes of laughter and chin-dropping. He performed there again in 2010. In 2004, 2007 and 2010, he was invited to participate in Eric Clapton's Crossroads Festivals.

In addition to his concert touring schedule, Huttlinger also spends a good deal of his time on stage speaking to audiences. He has taken what he's learned from surviving both a major stroke and end-stage heart failure and turned it into “Don't Just Live, Live Well,” a presentation on how he has overcome what seemed to be insurmountable obstacles. “Don't Just Live, Live Well” has been embraced by audiences.

Huttlinger also makes appearances as a side-man. Country/pop superstar LeAnn Rimes has often requested him for her acoustic performances. Including the filming of “Live From Abbey Road,” a BBC TV series taped at the famous London studios. It aired in America on BRAVO! Huttlinger also appeared with Rimes on ABC's “Dancing With The Stars” and made an acoustic recording with her that was sold as an exclusive download through Kellog's. He toured with John Denver for the last four years of John's life and often tours with pop icon John Oates of Hall & Oates.
