Chicago's Molehill doesn’t have the classic, charming origin story of longtime friends chasing down the spirit of rock in a suburban garage. Rather, the hand of fate drew the members into the path of lead singer and primary songwriter Peter Manhart from backgrounds one wouldn’t normally associate with soaring, anthemic pop rock; Trevor Jones, a classical upright bass player with a penchant for distortion, Devin Staples, a drummer in the venerable Chicago gospel circuit, and Greg Van Zuiden - a classical pianist who had only performed solo in the past. In fact, Manhart himself developed his love for performance in a touring Ukrainian dance troupe in his youth.
