Biography

Molly Alice Smitten-Downes (born 2 April 1987) known by her mononym Molly, is a British singer-songwriter. She was selected by the BBC to represent the United Kingdom at the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest, which was held in Copenhagen, Denmark on 10 May.

Born in Anstey, Leicestershire, Molly grew up in Rothley and attended Our Lady's Convent School in Loughborough. She began starring in stage productions from the age of eight. She studied music at Leicester College and at the Academy of Contemporary Music in Guildford, Surrey, and is an accomplished pianist.

Molly was a member of the British dance music project Stunt, who achieved chart success in 2008 with their collaboration mashup track "Raindrops (Encore une fois)" with Sash!, combining songs "Raindrops" (2006) and "Encore une fois" (1997). In 2009, Smitten-Downes teamed with Swedish producer and singer/songwriter Basshunter, for the collaboration "I Will Learn To Love Again", which is featured on his second UK album Bass Generation.

An acoustic EP Fly Away with Me was released on 18 December 2011. EP track "Shadows" was sampled by grime artist Marger and has been released on iTunes through 360 Records (21 August 2011). "Beneath The Lights", her collaboration with Swedish producer Anders Hansson, was released in April 2013 with Anders' project Dream Beats. "Never Forget", her collaboration with hardcore producer Darren Styles, was written and recorded in 2012.
On 3 March 2014, the BBC announced that Molly would be representing the United Kingdom in the Eurovision Song Contest 2014 with the song "Children of the Universe".
Molly wrote "Children of the Universe" herself and has described her ambition to write music that "breaks down political barriers". Prior to the contest, Molly signed a record deal with Warner Music UK on 1 April 2014. On 4 April, Molly announced that she would release her song "Children of the Universe" on 28 April 2014. It was made available for digital download on iTunes from 15 April. The official video for the entry was released on YouTube on 23 April 2014. At the Eurovision final on 10 May 2014, the song was voted 17th (out of 26 entries) and gained 40 points.

Molly was awarded in 2012 the Best Urban/Pop Act at Live and Unsigned and in 2013 won Best Song at the Best of British Unsigned Music Awards.
