My story

Sukey Molloy began working with children in 1985 and embarked upon her career as a children’s music performer and recording artist nine years later. Little did she know that she would one day be winning awards for her work, with three DVDs and four CDs! Growing up, Sukey studied dance and piano at the Hartford Conservatory of Music. She went on to train and perform as a professional modern dancer in New York City and became a member of the Solomon’s Company Dance, performing and touring with the company in NYC and Florida. Following her dance career, and with children of her own, Sukey went on to study Developmental Movement with former Olympian, Garland O’Quinn, Ph.D., and Infant Development with Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen. Sukey has designed and taught music and movement programs in libraries, nursery schools, after-school programs, and elementary schools, and, in 2005, launched her own, Nyack, NY-based PlayMove&Sing program of classes and teacher training workshops. Clients, fellow educators, and fellow musicians encouraged Sukey to record the songs she uses in her classes, and the result was her first CD, Circle Songs! (2005), which won the Children’s Music Web Award. A second album, I Like to Sing! (2007), received a NAPPA Honors Award, her third album, I Am Happy! (2012), received the Mom’s Choice Gold Award and the Preferred Choice Award, and her fourth album, I Am Sleepy! (2102), won the Parents’ Choice Silver Award. Sukey’s CDs are co-produced with Grammy-winner Larry Alexander, who she feels is the ideal person to interpret, record, engineer and master her music. Larry has recorded such artists as Diana Ross, Bruce Springsteen, Willie Nelson, Bon Jovi, and David Bowie. Sukey has produced three volumes of Sukey’s Circle! receiving the NAPPA Honors Award and the Mom’s Choice Award. In addition to recording and teaching, Sukey makes regular appearances with her band, Molloy & Friends.
