Chicago’s Molehill combines guitar riffs steeped in hard rock and blues; a rhythm section versed in R&B, gospel, and rock coupled with the slightest hint of electro rock to create a sound that has been winning people over across the country. Molehill’s co-founder and frontman Peter Manhart moved the group to Chicago from Champaign in 2006, and they released their debut record Rock & Mole in late 2007. Since 2008 Peter has been joined by Trevor Jones (bass), Devin Staples (drums) and Greg Van Zuiden (keyboards and vocals).

Since 2009 Molehill has toured throughout the Midwest and East Coast and along the way has opened for major label acts such as Bret Michaels, Blind Melon, Royal Bliss, and The Elms. In 2010 Molehill showcased at the Millennium Music Conference in Harrisburg, PA and was featured twice in the Red Eye (Chicago Tribune Pop Publication) along with features in numerous local print and online publications.

Sean Brna from Our Vinyl described Molehill as follows: “Drawing upon this ability to instantly alter their energy level, they use being incredibly in-sync with each other as a way to punctuate each song emotionally as well as musically (Nov, 2010).”

Molehill has a sound that is both classic and modern. With a captivating, energetic, “easy-to-like rock” sound (Matt Pais, Metromix Chicago ) Molehill’s live performances are intense experiences that captivate the listener.

Molehill is currently in general rotation on 88.9 WIIT Chicago
