Mamas Gun

Mamas Gun are masters of modern soul music. Their blend of classic and contemporary influences have sparked millions of streams worldwide and garnered praise from The Sunday Times, Billboard, The Guardian, and Uncut Magazine. Collectively, the London-based group’s first three albums, Routes to Riches (2009), The Life and Soul (2011), and Cheap Hotel (2014), spawned Top 10 hits on four continents, including #1 singles in Japan and Hong Kong, propelled by the band’s sold-out tours and funky, full-tilt performances at the Billboard Music Awards (Tokyo), plus global music festivals like WOMAD, Greenroom, Java Jazz, and Pentaport. With the release of Golden Days (2018), Mamas Gun have delivered their defining masterpiece.

A sense of joy and fun, coupled with exceptional musicianship, has always distinguished Mamas Gun from their contemporaries, even as they’ve grown and experimented with each new release. It’s those qualities that catapulted their first two singles from Routes to Riches onto BBC Radio 2 playlists and helped them surpass Madonna as the #1 international act on Japan’s airplay charts. The Life and Soul won more support from BBC Radio 2 and solidified their draw as headliners across Europe and Asia. Cheap Hotel powered the group’s profile even higher, reaching the Top 20 on the UK’s Independent Album Chart with a Top 10 Airplay single (“Red Cassette”).

However, Golden Days is the ultimate reflection of the band’s approach to songwriting and recording. “Everything seems to feel consolidated,” says Andy. “I feel like Golden Days is a high watermark, in terms of the songs, in terms of the camaraderie in the band, in terms of the outlook. I firmly believe that this is the best in the golden period of Mamas Gun.”

With over 20 live dates completed over the summer throughout europe/asia and beyond in 2019, mamas gun head back into the studio this autumn to work on new recordings due for release first quarter 2020. This also includes special collaboration works for their new usa label deal with ‘uniquity records’.
