Mama Kin


“Mama Kin’s music exists in the soulful place where art meets the world”
– The Sydney Morning Herald

ARIA nominee, Mama Kin is part raconteur and all-out entertainer. Created at the junction where strength meets vulnerability, Mama Kin’s music oozes soulfulness. Unafraid to mine the depths of the human condition, Mama Kin taps raw emotions and fears, pushing the boundaries of self- expression. Her critically acclaimed sophomore album The Magician’s Daughter followed on from the war-cry that was her debut Beat and Holler, firmly solidifying Mama Kin’s reputation as a purveyor of foot-stomping bass lines and ballads of open-hearted tenderness. Winner of the West Australian Music Award for Folk Act of the Year and named Artist of the Year at Port Fairy Folk Festival this year, Mama Kin was also shortlisted for Australia’s most prestigious songwriting award, the Vanda & Young Songwriting Competition. Mama Kin has shared stages nationally and internationally with the likes of The Cat Empire, Ani di Franco, Katy Perry, Gurrumul, The Waifs and John Butler Trio. As mischievous as she is charming, Mama Kin is renowned for her stirring live shows, where storytelling, intimacy and community reign.
