Carmen Gutierrez, aka MAMA CROW is truly a rare bird.
A New York native and East Bay transplant, this self-taught guitarist and soulful songstress evokes listeners on a deep, soul level. Her sound is a mix of rhythmic, funky finger picking and string slapping, guttural blues belts and quick lyrical flow with insidious phrasing.
Original Female Singer/Songwriter has an ecclectic style fusion of funk, folk-rock, gospel and neo-soul. MAMA CROW plays a VARIETY of shows- From live roots music with acoustic instruments to 6-piece live funk band. from intimate sola performances to harmonious creative collaborations with electronic, dub-step, down tempo and hip-hop. Always singing a mix of all original lyrics and on the spot free style.
