- 1 / 3 RESCUE 'Mama Kin'
- 2 / 3 Was It Worth It - Mama Kin
- 3 / 3 Sun Herald - Mama Kin March 3 2013
As mischievous as she is charming, Fremantle’s Mama Kin is part raconteur and all-out entertainer.
With a widespread reputation for her unique blend of foot-stomping soul, New Orleans-inspired bass lines, coupled with ballads of open-hearted tenderness and stirring live shows, the relationship between Alberts and Mama Kin comes a month before she releases her sophomore album ‘The Magician’s Daughter’ (released February 22nd via MGM)
Songs from her new album brim with her signature soul and raw emotion and mine the very depths of the human condition in search of connection and release. From the rousing guitar-driven energy of The Fire to the subtle ukulele picking of The River As She Runs and the brooding melancholy of Cherokee Boy married with the pop leaning of Rescue, Mama Kin journeys through the full spectrum of emotion. A sorcerer of free will and individuality, Mama Kin has earned a reputation for harnessing strength in vulnerability.
With cinematic sensibilities, Mama Kin unleashes a vigour and depth in The Magician’s Daughter. Brave, bold, and yet somewhat fragile, The Magician’s Daughter slips into the cracks of your subconscious.
Following the critically acclaimed debut ‘Beat and Holler’, The Magician’s Daughter, created with producer Jan Skubiszewski (Jackson Jackson, Owl Eyes, The Cat Empire) is an expansion, in songwriting, production and performance, challenging her trademark sound. Where her debut album Beat and Holler was a soulstress’ war cry, traversing the riotous and the raw, her sophomore album takes us deeper into the human condition, where the magic lives.
