Bronson Centre

Hot Date: Mother Mother back in Ottawa, chats about new album

Mother Mother play the Bronson Centre November 23, 2012, with opener Hannah Georgas.

Starting out as an acoustic pop trio in January 2005, Vancouver-based Mother Mother has since evolved into a five-piece, indie rock powerhouse. Following a slew of festival shows – and opening spots for the likes of Canadian rapper K’Naan – the group landed a deal with Toronto’s Last Gang Records in 2006. By 2011, their record Eureka reached No. 8 on the Canadian music charts, their biggest mainstream success to date.

The quintet will be making its way to the Bronson Centre on November 23 in support of their fourth full-length album, The Sticks. WHERE Ottawa’s Erica Eades speaks with frontman Ryan Guldemond about his musical influences, his affinity for country music, and the band’s favourite moment in Ottawa.
