Also joining Linda on this record is John Grant (engineer/producer), Billy Kemp (artist/producer), John Thomakos (drums), Jay Dulaney (bass), Hoppy Hopkins (drums/percussion. Such veratile talent combined with Linda's songwriting and soulful voice gives ' Molasses' a rich sound with a deep blend of styles.
