MY BABY+ JOHN FAIRHURST + AS MAMAS
Amsterdam band My Baby are coming back to the UK in 2017 for a new tour. The band recently announced they have finished recording their third album and will release the Shamanaid successor in March. The new album will be the basis for a complete new show: Prehistoric Rhythm.
In these times of turmoil and this busy and ongoing society that we live in, humankind is searching for a new way to go back to their primal awareness. My Baby takes the audience on a ‘Shamanic’ journey you have never seen before. The combination of light, visuals and music does so much more than just bringing the album to life, it enchanted the audience for the rest of their lives.
After their second album that caused their international breakthrough and that got rewarded with an Edison, they teamed up with British producer Sam Wheat for this new chapter.
My Baby have gained a cult live reputation, playing at some of the biggest festivals in Europe, including Glastonbury, Lowlands, Exit Festival, Shambala and Secret Garden as well as supporting Seasick Steve.

Plus support from JOHN FAIRHURST
Soon to be releasing his new album, John Fairhurst makes a turning point in his career, marking the shift from solo artist and duo member to powerful and expansive psychedelic, world, blues, rock improv trio. In the course of his career so far, he has spent the last decade travelling the world and supported the likes of Fun Lovin’ Criminals, performed with world beatbox champions Bellatrix and Reeps1 and the late, great, blues legend Johnny Winter. He includes Winter among his fans, as well as Robbie Macintosh of The Pretenders and Indian Sarod Master, K Sridhar– just a small indication of the quality of his live show.
The new material is the fruit of first class production: Alex Beitzke (Jamiroquai, Florence and The Machine, Nigel Kennedy, Ed Sheeran, Prince), Paul Cartledge (Tony Visconti) and mastering engineer Ray Staff (Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones, The Clash). This fantastic pedigree of collaborators is the result of a prolific approach to gigging, playing between 200-250 gigs a year between 2011 and 2016. Highlights include taking to the stage at SXSW in Austin, Texas, playing the Roundhouse in London and opening for Johnny Winter on his European Tour.

Drawing influence from the blues, rock n roll and reggae, As Mamas create big sounds for a two piece band. They recently announced their self-released EP which was written and recorded in a 1960s caravan.
