ALPHAMAMA | Soul of Sydney Local Music Profile #013 (June 2015)

Among the vast ocean of mainstream, middle of the road personalities there stands one woman: a fearless creative force who is passionate about music, life and people.

ALPHAMAMA is not your run of the mill singer. She is a forward-thinking, entrepreneurial artist who is dedicated to growing not only her own profile, but also the urban music scene in Australia. Her sound is soulful but hard-hitting, fused with the best of reggae, funk, hip hop and the 90’s flavour she grew up with. All of these elements have been major influences on her stylings along with New Jack Swing, Jazz and World Music!
