Listen to the Interview

Born of a lightning bolt moment between two long-time friends, Mama Kin Spender is sheer musical electricity. The collision of creativity in this partnership is infectious.

Both have successful solo careers with Spender and Mama Kin but were struggling with the loneliness and pressure of being a solo artist. They were chatting about it one day and decided to write together, which went really well, and progressed to an album's worth of tracks. 

When they were talking about touring, they didn’t want to tour with a band but also didn’t want to be just the two of them on stage, so they decided to keep it as a duo, but invite local choirs in each city/town that they were touring to join them.

Since, they have been performing with local choirs in places like Mullumbimby all the way through to WAAPA Gospel Choir in Perth and the Adelaide GOSPO choir.
