Mother Mare is a dynamic duo that consists of two talented people Robyn Maya the lead singer and guitarist and Julio Quijano the back up singer, guitarist and mixer. These two lovely people here sing straight from their soul in hopes of tugging at your heart. So that way you could connect with there music just like they are.  The best way to describe their music is if M83& MGMT had a baby it would sound something like this.

For Julio here this isn’t his first time ever playing in a band or even being in a crowd he previously toured around LA with a band named Watch for Horses. They were even featured on KROQ “Locals only” section. So it’s important to add he has an idea of how to make it in the music industry.

One of the things that makes this band much different from the others to him is that, he has as much creative freedom as he wants he even stated”When I meet Robyn I realized that I’m going back to what I originally wanted to do”.

Seeing these two perform on stage is almost a show on its own without the music seeing them be so intuned with there music.You’d never guess that they’re just starting off. These two talented musicians crossed path at college while taking a music class together, and taking what knowledge they learned there and implanting it to there liking. But even before they decided to get a formal education when they were both children they loved to toy around with music and exposing themselves as much as they could.

Robyn on the hand always envisioned herself being solo. Working with someone else is a nice change of pace for her compared to working solo b/c, now she has a shoulder to lean on for creative help. She relies her the help of Julio as well to let know what she thinks would be good or not. Julio went on to say this about working with her “This is something really special and unique we have this chemistry”.

The kind of rock that they are is the type that you would. Put some headphones on and just drift away in. It’s relaxing and hearing this could just help you unwind after a stressful day. It helps you escape the realities of the world. When you listen to music you want to connect with yourself more. Most defiantly  Mother Mare will definitely help you do that.

It doesn’t take to much to know that they put a lot of emotions into there music. Just being there and seeing the rawness of it live gave me that connection to the music. Almost as if I understand completely how they felt. The way they present themselves while playing with an indie style that you don’t really get to see too often. While Robyn blows you away with an authentic voice.

The inspiration they got from there name Mother Mare comes from all sorts of places. One being there obsession with space. With the word being the dark spots on the moon. They relate to more b/c they deem themselves to be night people as well. As well as the sea because of the flow of there music. Robyn stated “We resemble deep outer space and the deep ocean too.”

Much of the there inspiration is a kind of splurge of the moment kind of thing “Every song is a different process”. “It just kind of happens you don’t try to make it happen you just, play around with some things”. “It’s all very flowy” said by Robyn.

As of right now they have nothing lined up for the future show wise. But follow them to stay up-to-date on social media on Instagram/Twitter @MotherMareMusic
