Mama Kin Spender

Producer: Katie Rynne

Artist information

From the mouth of Margaret River, WA (Wadandi Boodja) to Victoria’s rugged Mornington Peninsula (Bunurong and Boonwurung country), Mama Kin Spender is a rattle and hum call across the desert plains. . An ARIA-nominated duo of mischief-makers, wholeheartedly committed to community, MKS is Mama Kin (aka Danielle Caruana), a storyteller and dream weaver with a penchant for soul-baring; and Dingo Spender, a producer and songwriter with remarkable instrumental dexterity. Their live show combine drums, percussion and blistering guitar with lightning arrangements underpinned by harmonies that shimmer and smoulder.

Wholeheartedly committed to community, gathering local choirs to join their chorus wherever they roam, MKS is an openhearted burst of sincerity, wonder and adventure. Their connection is primal, breathing soul and vitality into every space they inhabit. From the songwriting craft to the beats and beaming choir, MKS will leave you clutching at your chest while stomping & howling.

Additional Artist Notes 

Artist is able to look at choir format for an increased fee. Involves choir master (Virginia) working with local choir to learn the arrangement in the weeks prior to the show, then 1-2 rehearsals with the band (day before / day of show), before choir perform with the band on the day of show. Have done this format for a number of festivals (WOMADelaide, Caloundra Music Festival etc).
