Just in time for Mother’s Day weekend, electrifying eight-piece band The Suffers serve up their delicious blend of soul and celebrate Mothers everywhere with the video “Mammas.”
The band members pay tribute to their own mothers who make cameos in the video and who will inspire you to call your mom or a mother figure in your life and let them know how much they mean to you. The video also beautifully illustrates the fact that motherhood is universal.
Singer Kam Franklin who cites her own mom as her ‘hero’ shares, “The family unit as we know it is evolving. There is no one way to be a mother. So we have this representation because it exists and lesbians can be mothers just in the same way straight moms and single parents can.”
“Tomorrow is not promised. Don’t wait until your mother’s funeral to give her flowers or to tell her how much she means to you,” adds Kam. “Appreciate the time you get to spend together right here and right now. Call your mom.”
On July 13, Shanachie Entertainment will release The Suffers’ label debut Everything Here. Guitarist Kevin Bernier says, “‘Everything Here’ as a whole, explores the many aspects of who we are as people through songs. We’ve had crushes on people, we’ve had our hearts broken, and we’ve moved through all the difficult times so that we can experience the joyful moments.”
The Suffers have got everything you need and there’s no need to look further – a heaping dose of soul, a dash of reggae, a splash of jazz, a pinch of salsa, a hint of rock ‘n’ roll and a dollop of hip hop and funk – and that is just a few ingredients simmering inside their magical Gulf Coast soul.
