MOTHER FORTUNE PRESENTS: “MA, DON’T LOOK BACK”


EXCLUSIVE  PRE-RELEASE LISTENING LINK

Ma, Don’t Look Back Cover by Chicago artist  Oscar Joyo

Mother Fortune (MoFo) is an eclectic five-piece hip hop group based in Chicago whose funk, jazz, and soul influences drive their boisterous live sets, with vibes so good you’ll want to smack your mama–– or invite her to their next show. Made up of Shami and Moira, a dynamic rapper and vocalist duo, guitarist Cesar, bassist Tyler, and drummer Taskin, MoFo delivers everything from romantic lullabies to defiant, lyrical provocations. They promise to keep you on your toes with the quirky sensibilities of The Internet and Funkadelic-worthy breakdowns. 


Ma, Don’t Look Back is Mother Fortune’s third full release, tracking its evolution from electronic instrumentation to bombastic live performances, and represents a new iteration of the band’s supercharged sound. Their recent single, “You Know” was featured by curators at These Days Mag and local CHIRP radio. Recorded on the southside of Chicago at Echo Mill Studios and produced by Jackie Tang and Boxed Ookami, the EP crash-lands on all streaming platforms June 13th.

Mother Fortune was originally conceived by Shami in 2018, who envisioned the project as part  otherworldly band, part artist co-op. Since then, Mother Fortune has expanded, collaborating with numerous Chicago artists and bands. The namesake, “Mother Fortune” is the band’s  pink-haired patron saint and guiding spiritual force, featured beautifully by artist Oscar Joyo on the newest EP cover. The release of Ma, Don’t Look Back will coincide with an epic performance at the California Clipper on June 13th, where they will be joined by queer, post-grunge duo ORISUN and multi-talented singer and DJ Icey Bby
