"a whopping sound... powerhouse call-and-response vocals that have a live, sweaty-club energy... a sound as warm as the hug of an old friend.' 

John Shand, Sydney Morning Herald 4/5/2017


"the girls definitely deliver and the boys in the band are all over it, always in the pocket and thoughtful in their arrangements"

Michael Smith, Rhythms Magazine 18/05/17


Mama K & The Big Love are from the Deep South of Australia — Tassie to be exact — and it seems the location has given them a soulful sound.

A three-woman powerhouse, their vocals are strong and familiar without being derivative. Opener (and single) Moth To The Flame sets a sultry tone but there's much more to the album. There's the call and response glory of title track Blind, the somewhat cautionary Somebody and lovely ballad Don't Be Me. Come for the vocals, stay for the big keys and local tribute to the glory days of soul. Lots of promise.

"On first hearing Tasmania's Mama K & The Big Love debut release Blind my first thought was 'where has this band been hiding?'. Blind has loads of excellent soul, funk & gospel"
