MADISEN WARD AND THE MAMA BEAR
‘CHILDHOOD GOODBYE’
(out now through Liberator Music/Glassnote Records)

Glassnote Records and Liberator Music are thrilled to present ‘Childhood Goodbye’ – the anthemic new single from US duo, Madisen Ward and the Mama Bear.

Madisen Ward and the Mama Bear are a mother-and-son folk duo. The music started in Kansas City, where Madisen grew up watching his mom perform cover songs at local coffee shops. Before long, he was writing his own tunes, mixing the old-world influence of his family’s folk records with the unchained, energetic stomp of modern-day rock & roll. The two began playing entire shows together, ditching the cover songs in favour of Madisen’s original material. Both sang, both played guitar, and both watched as their band’s audience slowly grew.

They released their debut album Skeleton Crew in 2015 to critical acclaim, with NPR saying, “There’s sweetness to Madisen Ward & The Mama Bear’s music that makes me smile, and then there’s so much more.”

At home, Madisen and Ruth Ward are family members. Onstage, they lead their soulful folk band, whose sound is anchored by twin guitars and two big, booming voices. The band have toured with the likes of Violent Femmes, The Psychedelic Furs and The Avett Brothers, to name a few, as well as performing on festival stages at Bonnaroo, Newport Folk Festival and more. Their champions include Rolling Stone, Sirius XM, BBC Radio 1, Billboard, Paste and more.

Madisen Ward and The Mama Bear are:
Madisen Ward – lead vocals, guitar
Ruth Ward – guitar, backing vocals
