Mama Sam and The Jam

Portland based, Psychedelic Folk Pop band, Mama Sam & The Jam lifts vibrations and gives goosebumps. Like Mazzy Star meets Fleetwood Mac, catchy melodies, powerful harmonies and trippy guitar leaves listeners feeling high on vibes.

The group's fresh and intense synergy makes Mama Sam & The Jam fun to watch. Mama Sam is a soulful songwriter who sings lead and plays guitar. The Jam is smaller than usual because of Covid, but the groove is no less amazing! The Jam features Carmen Paradise slappin' that bass, Justine Renee is on keys and harmonies and Rachael Curtin bangin' that drum and sings harmonies.

The band released their first E.P., "Hearing is Hard" at the end of 2019 with producer Sean Flora. Mama Sam recorded a new E.P. called "Home" in Dec 2020 at the Center For Light, Color and Sound Therapy and it is set to release on March 12, 2021.
