Indie darlings Mother Mother are generating a lot of attention for their original approach to modern pop/rock music. Their sophomore album “O My Heart” was the #3 Canadian album on the iTunes 2008 chart listing, and their track Body of Years was singled out by CBC Radio 3 listeners as the year’s best vocal. The band’s use of rich vocal harmony, clever, offbeat lyricism, and dynamic instrumentation are masterfully employed in songs that mark the evolution and maturity of a band that stands out in today’s music scene.
Miss Emily Brown’s background in folk and jazz, combined with her enthusiasm for electronic music and improvisation, give her performances a notably innovative quality. Music boxes, autoharp, guitar, and Pianet provide the accompaniment to her riveting vocals.
