Their music is a Pandora’s cement mixer of styles. Sometimes the dissolution of genre sounds like an all-out assault on the ears. Sometimes its really rather pretty.

Formed in 2012, The Young Mothers – faturing a super group of heavy-hitters who have helped steer the direction of creative music in New York, Chicago, Texas, and Scandinavia – mean business! The six-piece group grounds itself in brilliant and potent new music while leaving time and space for side trips to the left-of-field, ranging from grindcore injections via free-jazz to visionary hip-hop.
Jason Jackson – alto, tenor & baritone saxophone
Jawwaad Taylor – vocals, trumpet & electronics
Jonathan F. Horne – guitar
Stefan Gonzalez – vibraphone & drums
Ingebrigt Håker Flaten – acoustic & electric bass
