Molly McGuire is a singer-songwriter currently based in Los Angeles, California. She is a multi-instrumentalist, but primarily sings and plays bass when performing live.

Originally from Canada, McGuire was a visual artist before becoming a musician.[1]

McGuire relocated from Canada to New Orleans, where she met Dave Catching. The two played together in the Gnarltones, a punk band. McGuire then moved on to her own band, Rhudabega.

After Rhudabega broke up, McGuire relocated to Los Angeles in 2001. There, she, Catching, drummer Brant Bjork and her brother, Brenndan McGuire recorded Demon Crossing in 2003 as Yellow #5. Gene Troutman also contributed.

Next, McGuire formed The Spores, with guitarist Greg Biribauer and drummer Kenny Pierce. They released Imagine the Future and, using McGuire's background as a visual artist, toured with an elaborate stage show.[1] Though they toured as the opening act for the Eagles of Death Metal, they canceled due to infighting.[2]

McGuire has also performed and/or recorded with Mark Lanegan, Mondo Generator, Nick Oliveri, Queens of the Stone Age, and Frank Black.
