Molly-Ann Leikin was born in Ottawa, Canada and defected with her baritone ukulele to California during a 58 below zero blizzard. The Department of Public Social Services in Los Angeles seemed to think she'd be a good Emergency Intake worker.
But it was a day job. And all of Molly's clients claimed the father of their babies was a rock star, so it was Molly's job to go after the alleged deadbeat dads for child support. However, instead of Molly helping the underprivileged get off welfare, they got her into the music business.
As a staff writer at Almo Music (A & M Records), then Interworld Music and Chappell Music, over the next ten years, Molly got her songs recorded by almost every pop and country artist on the Billboard charts. Now she has a house full of gold and platinum records, plus an Emmy nomination. She has also written themes and songs for dozens of TV shows and movies, including "Violet," that won an Oscar.
As successful as she is getting her own songs recorded, Molly is also an international songwriting consultant to developing artists. Twelve of her clients are Grammy winners, fourteen more are Grammy nominees, and so far, with Molly's help, 7459 other writers/artists just like you have placed their work in movies, TV shows, on CD's, in video games, commercials, and their tracks are downloaded all over the web.
The author of "How to Write A Hit Song" and "How To Be A Hit Songwriter" and producer of the best-selling MP3 CD "Molly-Ann Leikin's Master Class in Songwriting", and "Sliced Bread", a CD of her hot AC and country songs, Molly practices yoga, collects contemporary art, flosses and lives in Central California.
