With Steady Rush, audiences get a two-for-one sound. Combine Kylie Hartman's Pop/Rock/Singer-Songwriter flare and Molly Fiorentino's mash-up of Mediterranean and Dance Club sounds, and listeners are guaranteed a memorable show. This unique Pop duo is one to remember. From their distinct voices to their prominent looks, these two performers complement each other in true yin-yang fashion. With such contrasting backgrounds, it’s amazing that these two young ladies work together so harmoniously.
Kylie Hartman grew up with a constant desire to perform. Before she was even old enough to be enrolled in school, she was performing in front of cameras. Her flare for entertainment, evident in her bold stage presence, became the hallmark of countless home videos. At the age of 10, Hartman’s dad taught her how to strum her very own 6-string. Throughout the rest of her adolescence, she sang and played in nearly every talent show and local coffee shop. Born in Wisconsin but raised in Colorado, Hartman and her family moved to Idaho when she was fourteen years old. It was there that she graduated high school and enrolled in college.
Unlike Hartman, Molly Fiorentino was born and raised in Boise, Idaho. Fiorentino grew up with every intention of going straight into the medical field after high school. She had never performed, never tried singing, and certainly never considered a career in music. After plans for college fell through, Fiorentino had to rethink her future. With a natural mind for music, and a newfound realization of the industry’s pivotal impact on the world, she decided to go into Music Production. After sharing a few songwriting ideas with a Seattle-based mentor, Fiorentino was strongly encouraged to jump into the vocal booth to experience the recording process from the other side. Seeing Fiorentino’s potential as an artist, her mentor recommended that she develop her unique voice. From that point on, Fiorentino extended her artistry to the performing front as well.
After two and a half years of working on her own, Fiorentino was invited to check out live music at a coffee shop in Meridian, Idaho. It was there that she met Steady Rush’s other half. With fresh resolve to pursue a musical career, Kylie Hartman was in the middle of performing when Fiorentino walked through the door. As soon as they met, the pair was inseparable. They found comfort in knowing that they shared passion and hope in the same belief--that music should awaken all that is good and honest in humanity.
Before their paths crossed in 2009, Hartman and Fiorentino had each been developing as songwriters. Naturally, writing original material became one of their favorite perks of teaming up as a duo. All of their songs come from personal experiences, and from a place of desperation for mankind to be better. For them, the desire to positively affect the world drives them harder than any other motivation. It’s not about money and popularity for these two, it’s about so much more.
