Mama's Broke is a powerful folk duo that deliver a compelling performance with heart and raw energy. Although highly influenced by their Canadian roots, Lisa and Amy are based out of nowhere and everywhere.
Their two strong voices blend to create haunting harmonies, while they artfully juggle fiddle, banjo, guitar and mandolin, and incorporate traditional dance and foot percussion into their performance. Their original – and often dark – compositions push the boundaries of tradition and the constraints of genre. Drawing from old-time, Quebecois, blues, punk, Celtic, Balkan and doom metal, they create a soundscape that is both familiar and new.
Often drawing comparisons to Natalie Merchant, Gillian Welch and Nick Drake, Sipos’ rhythmic fingerstyle guitar playing is textured and immersive, and her true strength lies as a songwriter. She shines a tenderly skewed light into the darkness and draws the listener in to the strange and mystical space occupied by the shadows..
