Mama Kin - My Friend

Mama Kin - My Friend
Mama Kin's bittersweet melodies soar with stomping piano and swampy beats, all the while traversing the riotous, the raw and the intimate. Mama Kin is equal parts raconteur and soulstress: a sassy femme fatale who draws on her experiences of love, life and heartache.

Drawing inspiration from the songbird greats, Mama Kin's music is powerful and honest. Her debut album Beat and Holler features the single Tore My Heart Out, a finalist in the International Songwriting Competition and she is wooing audiences from Woodford to WOMADelaide and Byron Bay Bluesfest, not to mention sharing stages internationally with the likes of Ani di Franco, Gurrumul, The Cat Empire, The Waifs and Xavier Rudd.

"definitely my favourite and most inspiring album of the year."
**** JMAG (Sarah Howells, Roots N'All)

"Beat and Holler, is strongly individual…varied in feel and tempo, with heart-baringly honest lyrics, this is a piano lover’s dream." THE SUNDAY AGE

"…a highly impressive, soulful outing…her sultry vocals seem influenced by Billie Holiday and Nina Simone….excellent, soulful and feisty." THE WEST AUSTRALIAN

"a rich and luxurious singer…this is definitely a record with depth."

"refined grooves…these are songs of experience, personally and musically."

About this track...

My Friend is classic Mama Kin soul. A heart-baringly honest and intimate ballad, a tribute to the special angels that lift us up and carry us through life, My Friend is Mama Kin at her most raw and open. A re-record, this version features strings, keys and backing vocals.
