Skinny Molly was founded by guitarist/vocalist Mike Estes (formerly of Lynyrd Skynyrd and Blackfoot) and Nashville, TN studio drummer Kurt Pietro. Originally put together to do a one-off tour of Europe in 2004, Skinny Molly has, eleven years later, become one of the hardest working and popular rock bands out of the southern United States. Solidifying the current lineup in 2008, the band boasts guitarist Jay Johnson (formerly of Blackfoot/Rossington Band), and Grand Ole Opry stalwart bassist Luke Bradshaw. This lineup has toured relentlessly; their first jaunt found them crossing three continents in 30 days on the strength of their debut CD "No Good Deed". Constant gigging has established them as "The band from the South to see" across Europe as well as at home in the States.
