Named for their tiny Mississippi home town, the Como Mamas are sisters Angelia Taylor and Della Daniels and their cousin Ester Mae Smith, veteran church singers ‘discovered’ in 2006 by US label Daptone Records. Their magnificently gritty, gutsy, ‘get-you-through’ gospel music, proclaiming the good news with monumental power and passion, has since won swathes of fervent converts. “Nothing less than essential for fans of American roots music.” (AllMusic)

Michigan singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist May Erlewine also performs from the heart, spinning vivid story-songs from strands of folk, old-time, swing, soul and rock, allied with sweet yet incisive vocals reminiscent of Nanci Griffith.
