Mother, a Vancouver trio comprised of three voices and one acoustic guitar, was conceived in January 2005, year of the Rooster. Since then, Ryan and Molly Guldemond, brother / sister, and Debra-Jean Creelman have been performing without relent, creating a buzz in Vancouver's music scene as a new and very original band.
The music is a brand of quirky, eccentric pop with vaudevillian, classical and country undertones. The songs are unique, yet somehow familiar, and the lyrics sharp and wry, touching on contemporary life in all its beauty and balderdash. The three have a knack for vocal harmony, and an infectious chemistry on stage, leaving the audience chilled, yet charmed.
They have just recently recorded their debut album with producer/engineer Howard Redekopp ( 54.40, Teagan and Sara, The New Pornographers) and are set to release it in late October, 2005. They’ve had provincial and national broadcasts on CBC Radio One and Two, and have shared the stage with such artists as The Wailin’ Jennys, and Knaan.
Whether catching Mother accompanied by a rhythm section or just as a bare bones acoustic trio, the delivery is powerful, beautifully honest, and one to reminisce.
