British acoustic Alt- Folk 4 piece, combining vocal harmonies, percussion, guitars and occasional trumpet
Mookie + The Bab are Yorkshire born and bred duo Marc and Abi Otway and their good pals Will Stock and Conor Magi. They are a group of musicians that have been working together on various projects over the past 7 years that have seen them play many UK festivals including Latitude, Cornbury and London Folk Festival. Marc and Abi also performed short tours in California , Nevada and Austin, Texas.
In late 2019 they began new songwriting adventures inspired by the Climate Emergency, Floods, Fires and Desertification, something the band feel strongly about, however due to personal losses and other traumas that 2020 bestowed, the music is reflective, and often hopeful.
Mookie + The Bab have had their sound likened to that of somewhere in between Fleetwood Mac and Mumford and Sons, and list Lumineers, Fleet Foxes and Wildwood Kin as being some their favourite artists. With plans of recording a studio EP now on the back burner because of the COVID19 pandemic, Mookie + The Bab have released a series of live singles and videos, that were filmed just before the lockdown. Set in the underground victorian tunnels in Bradford which have been transformed into independent bars, the band performed live takes of 5 songs in total, 4 of which are now available on all digital platforms.
Summer 2021 will see Mookie + The Bab playing some outdoor performances and getting in the studio to perfect recordings to release. If you like our music please let us know by subscribing on the usual social media platforms and YouTube and of course you can sign up to our mailing list.
We look forward to seeing you in person at a live gig in the not so distant future.
Lots of Love
