Charlotte's #1 weekly Open MIC - "Find Your Muse" Open MIC here at the Evening Muse!!!

Mama Tried formed in mid 2017 with the collaboration of percussionist Kent Smith and guitarist/singer/songwriter Emily Soward. From the start this duo fed off of each other’s creativity, delving into folk music and its derivatives. They began to reimagine and reinvent songs from an eclectic palate of artists such as Doc Watson, The Lumineers, Grateful Dead, Shakey Graves, Tom Waits and Bob Dylan as well as old time traditional music. It was not long before the duo started creating their own original music. Mama Tried performed around the area as a duo and was quickly well received, but the addition of Duke Wicker on bass in late 2018 gave them an even richer depth and seemed to fully fuse and complete the group.

Mama Tried brings music to the stage that both entertains and captivates audiences in every venue they play be it a bar, bistro, or business center, appealing to a wide and diverse range of listeners. They are gaining a dedicated fan base in and around the area.

Percussionist, Kent Smith, delivers dynamic rhythms which are driving yet subtle and incorporates unique instrumentation that originates from old time and jug band raditions. The voice of Emily Soward has an angelic lilt the likes of Joni Mitchell infused with hard edged yet sultry tenors reminiscent of Harlem jazz along with infectious riffs and haunting melodies on guitar. Underpinning all this is the rock solid pulse of Duke Wicker’s bassmanship that dovetails this into a fusion the group likes to call Old Time Neo Folk.
