Mama Kin Spender

24 APRIL 2019 | The Spiegeltent Wollongong


Mama Kin Spender is a lightning bolt moment between two long-time friends, co-writers and mischief-makers: solo artists in their own right Mama Kin and producer Tommy Spender. It’s a stripped back duo of brooding guitars, primal drums and howling harmonies. Their debut album ‘Golden Magnetic’ came in swinging garnering ARIA and NLMA nominations and a WAM Award. Mama Kin Spender’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 brings the collective, collaborative and chaotic, inviting you to traverse the golden magnetic.
