MOLLY'S PECK is a blue-eyed soul music group founded in 2016. The independent Berlin based band - led by singer and violinist Julia Selbherr Castelhano (Germany) and guitarist Guilherme Castelhano (Brazil) – blends sweet, slick melodies with the funk-soul rhythm from influences such as Joss Stone, Derek Trucks, and Gregory Porter.
In 2015 they completed their Associate of Arts Degree at Los Angeles College of Music and immersed themselves in some of the most inspiring cities of the world:
Los Angeles, Valencia, London and finally Berlin, where both currently live.
Their debut album "Wrapped in Gold" in 2017 was followed by several single releases, where they gained a great response on social media. With their second studio album "Hope You Don't Mind" in 2020, they successfully connected music to the memories of an important time in their past by including special appearances of their former mentor John Avila (Oingo Boingo), Sammy Avila (Walter Trout, Philip Sayce) and brazilian soul singer Izzy Gordon, while also developing their own sound of MOLLY'S PECK music today.
For the first time they now produced and recorded in their own studio their new EP “At Home” where they audibly process all their frustrations during the pandemic, personal changes, new goals, but also a pulsating motivation in their songs.
