Mama Red & the Dark Blues – Writing Our Way Home

Thursday 18 April 7.00pm

Ever heard a song and wondered what the real story behind it was? Songwriters make music that tells universal stories, that their audiences can truly relate to and make their own. But like many works of art, these stories often emanate from the deepest, darkest places in a songwriter’s mind, and have a deeply personal meaning as well. Join us for an evening of songwriting stripped bare where we will unpack the raw passion and emotion that culminated in Mama Red & the Dark Blues’ debut album, The Wages of Sin — and the new upcoming album, Long Way to Redemption.

Described as Australian Gothic alt-country blues, but messing with genres, gender stereotypes and refusing to be stylistically confined, the band’s eclecticism and originality is part of their charm. Mama Red & the Dark Blues sing straight to the hearts of those who have wrestled with rotten relationships, waded through self-doubt and addiction and who have come out the other side with grace, power and a universal story to share.

You’ll be charmed by frontwoman Harry Deluxe, Melanie Bainbridge & Therese Cruise on harmony vocals, and Al James, John Wilson and Gregory Brenton – Perth’s most evocative rhythm section. Add a little dangerous didge by Sanshi and a host of incredibly special guests and you have an invitation to an evening you’ll never forget.

Come and hear our stories, and you might just find your own.
