NOMINATED for an AIR Award for BEST BLUES & ROOTS ALBUM 2010/2013

SHORTLISTED for the VANDA & YOUNG SONGWRITING COMPETITION

Mama Kin Spender is a lightning bolt moment between two long-time friends, co-writers and mischief-makers: ARIA-nominated Mama Kin and producer Tommy Spender. It’s a stripped back duo of brooding guitars, primal drums and howling harmonies, illuminated by a chorus of singers arranged by Virginia Bott (Brighter Later, First Chorus Band of Singers).  Mama Kin Spender’s songs rattle, roll and tremble, from block party to heart rending ballad. With a sound that is as raw as it is joyful, Mama Kin Spender will challenge you to raise your voice in defiance of the status quo.

Mama Kin has shared stages nationally and internationally with the likes of Gurrumul, The John Butler Trio, Katy Perry, The Cat Empire and The Waifs. With a widespread reputation for her unique blend of foot-stomping soul and heart-wrenching ballads, Mama Kin is part raconteur and all-out entertainer.
