The Boston Globe calls Hey Mama, “Sexy roots swagger with populist fire,” and they’ve drawn comparisons to Odetta, The White Stripes, and The Band. Come the New Year, The founding members, Avi Salloway and Celia Woodsmith will be taking this fire to work on global peace and social justice projects. Hey Mama will be celebrating their career with The Grand Finale Tour, which stops in the bands favorite venues across the Northeast. (click here for the full story)

It’s been a wild tidal wave; but an amazing experience to ride it with you all. Thanks for all the love and support and we can’t wait to rock out with y’all in style!

Love,

Hey Mama

THE DUBL HANDI SUITE RELEASED TODAY!!!


GET YOUR COPY


The brand new recording, THE DUBL HANDI SUITE is available today!!! The suite is stellar collection of some of our best work to date. Hot off our 40–date summer tour we landed at the legendary Hi n’ Dry Studios for a marathon recording session. As a band we’ve been hitting our stride and wanted to capture the mojo and get it out to the world overnight. The Dubl Handi Suite features the single releaseRunnin’ Back to My Love,” “The Most” with beautiful colors from the Tecumseh Strings, and you’ll hear the sincere dream like ardor in “The White Room of the Night.” The studio tracks are paired with three live favorites from the memorable show at the Paradise Rock Club. The suite is already receiving praise from the press with Boston’s Weekly Dig featuring the band on the cover of the Arts & Entertainment page.

The Dubl Handi Suite is available for download exclusively through our website. There are no middle men and your purchase goes directly to supporting the band!



The first 100 orders will be entered into a raffle to win an original antique Dubl Handi washboard (which the suite is named after) signed by the band. Also enjoy the documentary on The Making of “Runnin’ Back to My Love.”



We’ll be celebrating the release with the Suite Tour which kicks off tonight in our hometown at The Middle East. Advance tickets are available online until 7pm and then available at the club.

SEACOAST ONLINE WRITES GREAT REVIEW!
THE PRESS ROOM TONIGHT!

"Boston-based band Hey Mama's self-titled debut is a tasteful amalgamation of shimmering blues, twangy Americana, and raucous rock 'n' roll music. Co-founder and lead guitarist Avi Salloway is one of the most gifted and smooth guitarists in the Northeast and he lets it all hang out on this recording, really driving the music and pumping limitless quantities of energy into the tunes present on this album."

HEY MAMA IS RELEASED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Hey Mama was recorded with Grammy nominated producer Jack Gauthier. We weaved in recording sessions throughout our summer tour, when we jazzed up from the energy of the live shows. While proudly displaying its rock vibe, it’s hard to miss the undercurrents of blues and roots-country music that run throughout the songwriting. The album resembles an art collection, providing a many-textured look at contemporary experiences, political and personal. Launching off the band’s fiery synergy is Celia Woodsmith’s explosively emotive voice, powerful but at times peacefully tender. The record also features guest appearances from The Tecumseh Strings, a chamber group of Boston’s finest string players.

We are very proud of the record, it’s our best work yet and it is very exciting to share it with you!

Come celebrate with us on our CD RELEASE PARTY TOUR:

12.4 – Northampton, MA – Bishop’s Lounge
12.5 – Burlington, VT – Nectar’s
12.10 – New York, NY – The Bitter End
12.11 – Cambridge, MA – The Lizard Lounge
12.12 – Cambridge, MA – The Lizard Lounge
12.19 – Lebanon, NH – Lebanon Operah House
