Mamma Freedom
Devil On My Shoulder MP3: £0.99
A deep and dirty slow jam backed with sonic horns and fatback drums so greasy it’s like the sweat rising from a frying steak.

Mamma Freedom
I Don’t Belong MP3: £0.99

A more soulful vibe from Mamma Freedom, J Johnston’s masterful testifying vocal is beautifully backed by soul soothing piano and tasteful rhythm.

The secret of funk is in the precision and this track is truly ON IT – whupping the beat with killer licks and funky riffs, this one’s gonna make your neck dance.

Bio

Likened to a split personality, they knock you out with one hand, while picking you up with the other. It’s like watching a storm flatten a building, with anger and fury one minute, then seeing the sun break through the next. It morphs from chaotic to calm in the beat of a drum. A lethal combination of heavy, moody, hard driven, beat laden funk rock, and hip-hop and soaring, warming, uplifting soul with raunchy blues.
Mix in a heavy Sly and & the Family Stone 70's funk influence, Zeppelin / Black Crowes - style drive, soaring cinematic strings, and powerful harmonies weaved together by Producer Alexander Johnston using his unique production styles and wall of sound, and delivered by singer/brother J, whose gravel driven, velvet tinged, soul soaked voice scales effortlessly through the range of life's emotions. Having gained global reputation as one of the best new bands, they are selling out venues, playing to capacity crowds and sending them home happy with a tight, explosive live show. Managed by Charles Carlini and In Touch Entertainment in New York whose artists include world famous Oscar winning composer Ennio Morricone, Eumir Deodato and Keith Emerson, the band has set up a base in the Big Apple and in the last 18 months the band took has taken Hollywood by storm, with US record company meetings and possible film scores being currently discussed.
Already and influence on their peers and counting Hollywood actors and film producers as among their fans, Alex and J have written with 3 no.1 selling artists and only more to come gaining the praise as song writers and for Alex's Production and Mixing.
Album 'Preachers and Criminals' is out in March 2013
