  • About Midwest Molly

    Midwest Molly is the captivating country music collaboration between Kate Hathaway, hailing from the country heartland of Illinois, USA, and her husband Michael Turner, a seasoned musician from the beaches of Australia.

    When the two met in the iconic music city of Nashville, Tennessee, they were quickly united by their love for music and each other. Their creative sparks ignited and the MWM songwriting partnership was born.

    Drawing from the rich tapestry of both of their musical journeys, Midwest Molly offers a unique blend of American country with refreshing global twists. This music is a testament to their world travels, industry experiences, and the beautiful perspectives they've gained along the way. The resulting songs are as heartfelt as they are unique.

    “We write our songs for us, to document our journey, to tell our stories knowing that many will connect having had similar moments in their own lives. Others will simply enjoy hearing tales that are not at all like their own.”

  • The Songs

    Kate and husband Michael Turner met in Nashville where they both lived for several years.


    They became a writing, recording and performing team. Their songs are inspired by their lives, musical histories and observations.

    The Recordings

    MWM has been fortunate to have met a lot of world class musicians and producers that have become friends…. especially from the vast Nashville melting pot where they lived and worked…. making it so much easier to bring the songs to full life.

    Vocals / Guitar / Charango

    Kate Hathaway performs as MWM in this new originals project.

    Hailing from the USA Midwest in Illinois, Kate grew up with music in the family including a Grandad with a rich musical history in Chicago.

    Kate has been performing professionally since a young teen and sometimes says she wouldn’t be so good if their winter’s weren’t snowed in for months at home. “I would have probably been at the beach if I lived in Australia….. but I would still take a guitar for the bonfire”.

    Kate leads the show with her ever sweet vocals, while playing guitar and charango.
