Mother & The Boards
Kazoo Studios
Elandis V Brooks
Jordan JBird Davis
Sakima Williams
-from Oakland, CA

-Mother & the Boards is a fierce blend of folk and blues with a message to incite and inspire you. Defined by the vocal gymnastics and songwriting prowess of front woman Kazoo Studios, their sound is reminiscent of hip hop artists like Erykah Badu and Brother Ali but come from the lips of a New York State folk singer. Imagine the musical birth child of Nina Simone, Bob Dylan and Fugazi belting revolutionary anthems for a contemporary audience. Mother & the Boards  uses a looping pedal, guitar and vocals to craft a unique blues and folk sound with distinct hip hop influences. Mother & the Boards also features regular guests on percussion, bass, horns and strings. Based in Oakland, CA, you can find them performing in venues across the Bay Area. Their latest music video, Superfund (released in August 2016) was included on Shadowproof Media’s Protest Song of the Week.
