ABOUT US

Molly Hanmer & The Midnight Tokers mix Americana, blues, rock & roll, folk, psychedelia, and even Bossa-Nova that makes it a unique sound in its own right. The Los Angeles quartet is the brainchild of Molly Hanmer, formed in 2015 to continue her musical journey. 


The band is now formed by Molly Hanmer (Lead Vocals, Guitar, Harmonica, Songwriting), John Bird (Organ, Wurlitzer, Piano, Backwards Piano, Vocals), Graham Chapman (Bass Guitar, Stand-up Bass, Vocals) Keith Palmer (Drums, Percussion, Vocals). 


Together they mix a multitude of influences and styles, with their music usually labeled as psychedelic folk-rock. Molly Hanmer & The Midnight Tokers’ style switches it up, making you stamp your boots on the floorboards and clap along on one track; and weep, pull out your journal and express bottled up feelings on the next. 


Molly Hanmer & The Midnight Tokers debut album Stuck In A Daydream was released in Fall 2018, to great reactions from fans and press. The album is the product of Hanmer teaming with two industry pros who share her musical views, producer Marvin Etzioni (co-founder of Lone Justice) and engineer Sheldon Gomberg, a two-time Grammy winner. Having played a great number of local venues in Los Angeles, Molly Hanmer & The Midnight Tokers are now ready to take on bigger stages and adventures.
