Mama Kin
Summer Tour
Mama Kin's bittersweet melodies soar with stomping piano and swampy beats, all the while traversing the riotous, the raw and the intimate. Already a favourite on the festival circuit with killer appearances at Woodford Folk Festival and the Byron Bay Bluesfest under her belt, Mama Kin draws on her experiences of love, life and heartache to deliver a set that is as engaging as it is inspirational.
This summer Mama Kin will take to the road to nourish the eardrums of music lovers nationally, showcasing tunes from her debut album Beat and Holler, due in store through MGM Distribution July, 2010.
Beat and Holler marks the arrival of a sassy, soulful femme fatale, with hints of Regina Spektor, Fiona Apple and Joan As Policewoman. Powerful and gut-wrenchingly honest, Mama Kin's roots-tinged soul conjures the songbird greats.
Tore My Heart Out, the first single from Mama Kin’s debut album was named iTunes Single of the Week. The accompanying video clip, complete with drum majorettes in suburban streets, scored indie clip of the week on Rage and was named clip of the week by The Daily Telegraph. The first taste of what’s to come from Mama Kin, Tore My Heart Out, resonates with her trademark passion and pathos.
