The Splendour of Mama Kin Spender (MKS)!
Mama Kin Spender (MKS) is a lightning bolt moment between two long-time friends, co-writers and mischief-makers: ARIA-nominated Mama Kin and producer Tommy Spender.It's a stripped back duo of brooding guitars, primal drums and howling harmonies.
The group’s songs rattle, roll and tremble, from block party to heart rending ballad. With a sound that is as raw as it is joyful, Mama Kin Spender will challenge you to raise your voice in defiance of the status quo.
MKS have been flat chat since the release of their album 'Golden Magnetic' in February 2018, cramming in a national album launch run amidst shows at Perth
Festival, WOMADelaide, Summersalt, Nannup Festival, Fairbridge Festival, SOTA, and Woodford Planting Festival. Fresh off the back of their
USA, Canadian and Irish tours, Mama Kin Spender are rounding off 2018 with some Australian festivals and show dates.

"A rich, textural, at times raucous and at times gentle but stirring collection of stories and fables." – The Music.com.au.
+ Special Guest Jacob Diamond
Alt-folk oddity Jacob Diamond sings bold songs about love and death. After years in Perth's songwriting underground, Diamond has recently
emerged as one of the foremost singer-songwriters in the west, furnished with huge melodies and incisive lyrics.
Diamond pens intricate, genre-bent bangers taking all the best bits from a box of 60's compilation CDs, memories of a crowded Catholic childhood, Les Miserables and one reckless detour into jazz-study. Well short of being as confused as it sounds, his work has earned him first prize in The Big Splash band
competition, WAM awards for best folk act (2015) and best male vocalist (2016), the acclaimed release of EPs Chum (2015)
and Um (2017) and national tours and supports.
'...A phenomenal voice, with excellent control and impressive range... the performance definitely promised the young talent to be an artist worth paying attention to.'-
Larry Heath, AU REVIEW.
