Dublin, County Dublin
Mola are a Rock band, formed in Dublin, Ireland in August 2005 by
David Duggan, Barry Kavanagh, Ray O’Sullivan and Keith Evans. The
bands main influences include Led Zepplin, the Who, the Doors, Free,
Guns N Roses. However, the band are not tied to these influences and
while they tend to naturally groove towards classic rock elements,
they purposefully push their sound in the direction of the modern
music era. This leads to a new interpretation of old sounds, a classic
rock band for the new age, if you will. This sound is further enhanced
by the devotion to fine songwriting standards evinced by the past
icons that Mola aspire to.
The band released their debut album “One Year in the Asylum” in 2009.
The album was produced by Liam Mulvaney (Mundy, The Radio, Cathy
Davey) and Jimmy Eadie (Jape, RSAG, Fionn Regan). The band had to
delay the initial tracking for the album after their studio time was
commandeered by the mighty Bob Dylan. The album was recorded in
Westland Studios Dublin, famous for its work with legends such as the
Clancy brothers and Van Morrison, with later tracking at Asylum
Studios. The album was mastered by Aidan Foley and released online
through the band’s own label.
Late in 2009 Keith Evans left the group to focus on career and family.
He was replaced by Will Mullen, of Denver, Colorado, and the band
returned to the live circuit in April 2010.
“The mission is to drag the passion and feeling that existed in the
rock movement of the late 60s and early 70s, into the modern world.
This is not a trend, there are no creative restrictions. This is about
great songs performed by great musicians with all the passion in the
