Communist Daughter features founder Johnny Solomon and his wife Molly Moore. In 2007 Solomon moved from Saint Paul, MN to Prescott, WI after the break up of his band Friends Like These. There he began writing and recording under the name Communist Daughter, taking the name from a Neutral Milk Hotel song.
But when he moved out of the Twin Cities his demons followed him. Plagued by his continuing troubles, he spent his nights writing and recording what he thought would be his own eulogy, songs about lost love and lost chances. It wasn't until he met a young singer named Molly that his collection of songs became the beginning of something new. Promising to sing with him if he got clean Johnny began the long road back to music.
Calling his new band Communist Daughter, he moved back across the border and released the debut album Soundtrack to the End in 2010, then checked himself in to treatment. Clean and sober, and in 2013 married to the singer Molly Moore, and with their band, (Adam Switlick on bass, Dan Demuth on drums, Al Weiers on guitar and Dillon Marchus on keys and guitars) they released the EP Lions & Lambs in 2012 and toured extensively.
This show features Johnny & Molly.
