Hailing from Australia's deep south, Mama K and the Big Love performed their all original, old school soul and funk (with a dash of heathen gospel) for the first time in October 2014. While recording was their first goal, the energy and passion they exude during their shows is contagious, and their reputation as a live act continues to grow along with their flock of loyal supporters.
There is nothing bland or meaningless within their infectious grooves, and with powerhouse vocals delivering a diverse range of original songs about (but not limited to) stalking, stripping, drug abuse, hypocrisy, addiction, depression, ego and family, Mama K and the Big Love are a band with attitude and substance.
In 2016, Mama K recorded their debut album at Red Planet Recording with producer Stewart Long (Violent Femmes, Luca Brasi). The album was tracked through a 1975 Vintage Harrison 24/32 Recording Console and mixed to a Vintage Studer B67 Analog Tape Deck. "So much can be done with digital these days, but sometimes you just want some romance!" said Stew Long, “We used old gear wherever it felt good."
The first single ‘Moth to The Flame’ was released on February 17th, 2017 and is a story about a stripper and a priest who both exploit their loyal flock of followers with promises of heaven. The song is brilliantly brought to life in the video by acclaimed Hobart actor Jeff Michel, who plays both roles in a masterful cross dressing, hip churning solo performance.
The album ‘Blind’ was released to critical acclaim on March 10th, 2017.
