Mama Red & the Dark Blues - The Wages of Sin

  • The Ellington Jazz Club 191 Beaufort Street Perth, WA, 6000 Australia (map)

The Wages of Sin boasts some stellar compositions and works its way from a stripped back, emotionally raw a ‘Capella sound, to rocking roots and country harmonies.

Described as ‘alt-country-pop with a hint of gospel’, but messing with genres, gender stereotypes and refusing to be stylistically confined, the band’s eclecticism and originality is part of their charm. 

The Wages of Sin sings straight to the hearts of those who have wrestled with the wrong relationships, waded through self-doubt and addictions and who have come out the other end with grace, power and a universal story to share. 

Mama Red & the Dark Blues will take listeners on a musical journey to Hades via Lost Love Canyon, Near Miss Alley and Shotgun Street – and bring them out feeling like they’ve ridden a thousand miles on a horse named Sorrow, but lived to tell the tale.

Featuring Harry Deluxe, special guests Mitchell Lawrence and Katie Holland-Packer, and a posse of the State’s most talented musicians – Mama Red & The Dark Blues deserve your undivided attention. And beware… if you don’t give it, you may have it taken from you by force.
