Mama Red & The Dark Blues The Wages Of Sin says
After the successful recent release of their Album, The Wages of Sin, Mama Red & the Dark Blues are back at the Ellington, but get in quick as the last show sold out in advance and space is limited!

The Wages of Sin boasts some stellar compositions and works its way from a stripped back, emotionally raw a ‘Capella sound, to rocking roots and country harmonies. Described as ‘Alt-Country-Pop with a hint of gospel’, but messing with genres, gender stereotypes and refusing to be stylistically confined, the band’s eclecticism and originality is part of their charm. They hark back to the earliest bawdy blues, sink into soulful R&B via the hallowed halls of country, grab a little gospel and then give a slightly ironic nod to modern pop – all within one hour and across one cleverly coherent album.

The Wages of Sin 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 universal story to share.

Mama Red & the Dark Blues 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.

Featuring Harry Deluxe - a lead vocalist who can simply blow the speakers - a posse of the State’s most talented musicians 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.

What people are saying about Mama Red & the Dark Blues:

"The arrangements were excellent whether they were originals or covers. Mama Red’s delivery covered gutsy blues to country to pop with a touch of gospel with ease. The crowd left supremely satisfied, eagerly awaiting the chance to download songs soon and perhaps purchase a limited vinyl edition of Wages of Sin hopefully out by Christmas."

“The X-factor is the lyrics.”

David Cusworth – The West Australian

“Harry Deluxe, took her audience from raw and sultry, to harmonious and sweet, with the assistance of an incredibly talented set of musicians - the Dark Blues. The two hour launch dipped into all kinds of emotions and situations, and yes, the vocals only and torch songs were gutsy and brilliant, but I do love a ripping break up song and Come By Sunday is one of those songs you're still toe tapping to on the way home in the car.”
