Molly Tuttle has signed with Nashville-based Compass Records.

Tuttle is currently nominated for the International Bluegrass Music Association’s Emerging Artist of the Year and Female Vocalist of the Year honors, as well as a history-making nod as the first woman in the 27-year history of the IBMA Awards to be nominated for Guitar Player of the Year.

“I’ve been a fan of Molly’s since I heard her at IBMA’s World of Bluegrass convention nearly a decade ago,” says Compass co-founder Alison Brown. “Molly was still in high school but it was clear that she was a singular player and singer. Since then it’s been wonderful to watch her mature into a great songwriter, guitarist and bandleader. The depth of her musicianship is extremely impressive and I’m really proud of her both for what she is bringing to contemporary bluegrass as well as the example she is setting for the next generation of female musicians. I couldn’t be more excited to have Molly on the Compass roster and I’m looking forward to seeing where her music takes her next.”

Tuttle released her debut solo EP Rise earlier this year. The seven-track project was produced by Kai Welch and features plenty of Tuttle’s signature guitar work. She is currently working on a full-length follow up to be released in 2018.
