Bio

“ALPHAMAMA is one of the Australian music industry's engaging voices, constantly using her platform to inspire others with the importance of self-love and self-care,” Pilerats

"...With the vigorous commanding energy and charisma of ten Beyoncés rolled into one... her presence on stage was magnetic and electrifying" - Tanya Bonnie Rae (themusic.com.au)

“ALPHAMAMA is a force... an incredible, self-empowered woman and great role model for women everywhere.” Purple Sneakers

Following the success of her latest single ‘3x11’, ALPHAMAMA returns with her long awaited record ‘Oil & Water’.

Using music as medicine, ’Oil & Water’ is an insightful and honest documentation of self discovery and self acceptance. As an artist who shares her process openly and intimately through social media, her record stands true to her image. Through womb deep wailing, rapid fire raps or poetic whispers, Oil & Water emphases the message that no matter which form or shape she embodies, she is enough.

ALPHAMAMA has been an influential player in the RnB/Soul and hip hop scene, collaborating with and supporting some of the industry’s finest from Salt n Pepa, Thundamentals, NGAIIRE and Jessica Mauboy. She has always had a habit of exploding out of fixed genres and bleeding over a variety of sonic and aesthetic worlds. Her shows are theatrical and edgy.

Coming to the table with a deeper maturity since her last album Truth, Trips and Revelations, she is as unapologetic as ever. Effortlessly traversing the realms of Jazz, Hip Hop, Soul, Trap and Dance music. As a proud mixed race Australian woman, she features her Indonesian heritage through poetry (Ballers) and gamelan samples (Stranger in Asia).

Of the EP, ALPHAMAMA says, "I love paradox and contradiction... like Oil & Water together create a beauty that’s other-worldly. That’s how I feel about my expression”

“The main thing I want people to know, is that you NEVER ever have to be just one thing. You're a human being with dimension and facets. Soft and strong. Violent and vulnerable. Fierce and feminine. All of it is valid and welcome. I hope that people feel a sense of liberation in their own expression when they hear the record. I try to wear my heart on my social media sleeve and give all my fucks away... This record is no different.”

With over 70k streams on Spotify in a month, 3x11 has received support from industry media Purple Sneakers, Pilerats, Triple J’s Home & Hosed and Hau’s Hip Hop Show, The Edge Radio and tastemakers across the globe. ALPHAMAMA’s latest is bold piece in claiming her place in the music industry and proving she’s here to stay.

With an authentic and loyal following, ALPHAMAMA has been steadily growing a movement over the years. Each of her releases speak to the real issues faced by her and her community. She is loved for her soul and her music.

I remember seeing ALPHAMAMA playing live in Sydney and being completely mesmerised, it's been a real journey watching the progression of this artists, and she continues to mesmerise with her music.

ALPHAMAMA shifting gears with this latest one. Recent track 3 X 11 was on the hip hop / R&B tip but this one sees the Sydney talent take control of the dancefloor. Lead vocal is still soulful as but it's jolted about with that thudding bass.
