Los Angeles, CA – Molly Jenson's debut CD, Maybe Tomorrow, is still a month away from release but is already garnering significant attention in various media. Her songs "Give It Time" and "Wait For You Here" were recently featured in the TV shows "Privileged" and "Knight Rider," the singer just landed the cover of Risen Magazine joining past featured cover artists like Paul McCartney, Ozzy Osbourne and Billy Bob Thornton, she recently performed three songs on the popular TV show Nightcap and her CD has been hailed by Stereosubversion.com as "the best album of 2009."
But Jenson's friends and supporters have even bigger plans in mind-having just launched an effort to bring their favorite artist's music to hundreds of thousands of new fans using several popular social networks in a campaign they've dubbed "Make Molly #1" or "MM1" for short.
Organizing a grass-roots campaign to recruit fans who will commit to buying her CD during its debut week of March 3rd, 2009, Jenson's fans hope for an opening week of sales that will break records for a new artist and make the Orange County, CA based singer a household name.
When she learned of the effort, Jenson posted a video at her Facebook site thanking members for their support. Other groups have formed at social networks like MySpace and other sites.
Jenson has already been a favorite on the net having been named by Teen Vogue magazine as one of the top 3 artists on MySpace, an honor that helped bring her to the attention of her label Bully! Pulpit Records which is releasing Jenson's debut CD in partnership with Nettwerk Music Group. Since going live, hundreds of people have registered at her site and received a free download of Jenson's first single "Give It Time," in exchange for committing to purchase the CD when it debuts on March 3rd.
"I'm realistic about these things, and somehow I don't think I'll be beating U2 the week our CD's release," laughed Jenson. "But it would be amazing to make a strong showing on the Billboard New Artist Chart. But whatever happens, it's every artist's dream to be supported like this by fans, so I'll be happy if I end up being the #1 artist named Molly, or the #1 artist from Fullerton, or the #1 artist who grew up in San Diego. I'll settle for #1 something!"
"The Obama campaign showed us the power of social networks and has changed politics as we know it," noted Mark Joseph of Bully! Pulpit who first spotted Jenson and signed her to his label. "This is a way for fans and future fans to be a part of making history."
