Mama Red & the Dark Blues says
The Wages of Sin

Soaked in sin, fuelled by gin and on their way to high tea with the devil, Mama Red & the Dark Blues bring to the stage a wicked elegance which resurrects the most decadent and dangerous eras of our time.

Described as ‘Alt-Country-Pop with a hint of gospel’, but traversing genres and refusing to be stylistically confined, Mama Red’s eclecticism and originality is part of her charm. She harks right back to the earliest bawdy blues, sinks into soulful R&B via the hallowed halls of country, grabs a little gospel and then gives a slightly ironic nod to modern pop – all within one hour and across one cleverly coherent album. Mama Red’s music is a musical mélange. She borrows from the best of bygone eras, but weaves the sounds into melodies and narratives uniquely her own. Hot harmonies further create her distinctive sound, stamping the Mama Red label firmly on these dangerously different tracks.

And what are the themes of Mama Red’s music? This album is truly a personal narrative – a life well lived, if a little roughly at times. It’s a journey through pain and loss; evolution and emergence, reinvention and new love. Mama Red believes that decadence is an attitude, and she wields it like a weapon, and this album sings straight to the hearts of those who have wrestled with the wrong relationships, waded through self-doubt and addictions and who have come out the other end with grace, power and a story to share.

The Wages of Sin, Mama Red’s new album, will take listeners on a musical journey to Hades via Lost Love Canyon, Near Miss Alley and Shotgun Street – and bring them out feeling like they’ve ridden a thousand miles on a horse named Sorrow, but lived to tell the tale.

With a set of lungs that can simply blow the speakers, and a mutinous posse of Perth’s best instrumentalists, some VERY special guests and some seriously sexy harmonies behind her – Mama Red & the Dark Blues deserve your undivided attention. And beware… if you don’t give it, you may have it taken from you by force. Grab a gin, park your sin and join Mama Red & the Dark Blues on the buggy headed for crazy town.
