Since their formation in 2014, the five piece string band has been fusing diverse musical backgrounds into a sound that bursts at the seams with energy, exuding a pure joy for creating music. Providing a window to the future of bluegrass while keeping the flavor of Americana and Rock n’ Roll alive, Mamma’s honest lyrics and warm, acoustic tones invite listeners back to a time when wooden instruments and sweet vocal harmonies captivated the hearts of America. Experimenting with intricate instrumentals and lively originals, their music brings the genre to new and unexpected places.
