Mama Kin Spender (Australia)

Mama Kin Spender is a lightning bolt moment between two long-time friends, co-writers and mischief-makers: Mama Kin and Tommy Spender. Both artists in the own right, this dynamic collaboration delivers something greater than the sum of their parts. Their song writing prowess sits front and centre, while Spender’s brilliant production sensibilities bring an effortless sophistication to their tracks. 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). Their debut album Golden Magnetic was enthusiastically received, garnering nominations for an ARIA Award for Best Blues and Roots Album, and an NLMA award, and winning a WAM award, encouraging them towards jumping back into the writing room and studio to create new works.
