Hip-hop beats and dirty Delta blues anchor the sound of Mama's Cookin'. The band creates music that could only come from the modern age. The rock- solid drumming of Mike Adamo and resonant bass work of Steve LaBella build a foundation for Mama's Cookin'. The ultimate front man, Zebuel Early is both charismatic and articulate. Hailing from the musical center of America's Southern Delta, Zeb came by his blues guitar work honestly. Songs of true beauty and deep intention, crafted with unique and timely lyrics, leave a lasting impression.
Mama's Cookin' chose New York City to record their new album. The team that created the self-titled project features award-winning producer Chuck Zwicky (Prince/Jeff Beck) along with special guests Maya Azucena (Stephen Marley), and producer Pete Miser (Dido). As one reviewer put it "This album hits like a ton of bricks wrapped in velvet." Mama's Cookin's sole objective is to create music that moves: Songs that are inspirational both in the headphones and on the dance ﬂoor.
After the 2008 ESPN Winter X Games, Mama's Cookin' headed up to Whistler, Canada for the Telus World Ski and Snowboard Festival. Both mountain venues were blown away by the power of the band. Taking time off of years on the road to hone their sound into a snarling bluesy beast, Mama's Cookin' is now working their magic on larger stages.
