"To use our colourful quirkiness & social conscience to create music that's unpredictable and brings soul to the world"
Mama Tilly is sophistication and wild with two fingers up to conformity, doing away with clichés and about to make their mark on the Wellington music scene.
After a recent change in line up, the band now consists of original members Georgina Swan-Hay (Drums) and Lisa Tagaloa (Bass, vocals) who studied together at Whitireia Music School. Singer/songwriter Mahinarangi Maika (Vocals), New Zealand School of Music graduate Ila Scott (Keys, vocals) and newest member Mitch Harty (guitar) consolidate the synergy of Mama Tilly.
Expanding on the influences and cultural flavours of each individual, good luck trying to pigeonhole Mama Tilly into one set style. Fusing lush vocal harmonies with soundscapes ranging from tender blues and raucous punk to swinging jazz and reggae grooves; “Music is the soul of what we do and the reason we connected. We create by feel, not to fit into the confines of any given genre.”
Whatever your expectations, seeing them live is a truly genuine and heartfelt experience. From opening for acts such as South Island based band Left or Right or Wellington’s own Lisa Tomlins, to playing events like the Festival of the Elements, Creekfest and the shortfilm “BABY” – Produced by Raquel Sims of Treetop Productions. Mama Tilly is without a doubt a band on the rise. With their determination, talent and drive, fate almost certainly has some big things a-brewing.
FIND YOUR PURPOSE & LIVE THE DREAM!
Thanks for stopping by, catch up again soon!
